X Games 17 came and went over the weekend, and Element team riders, Nyjah Huston, Bucky Lasek, and Julian Christianson left the building rocking a vast collection of precious medals.
First and foremost, sixteen-year-old, Nyjah Huston won X Games gold in Skateboard Street finals with his all-out assault on the street course. Between the hardflip off the roof, a 360-flip lipslide down the big rail, to the kickflip backside tailslide to bigspin out on the 6-stair, jaws were dropped, minds were blown, and the godfather of skateboarding had this to say…
“That is by far the best (skateboarding) we’ve seen here this weekend.” – Tony Hawk
With those kind of accolades and that bag of tricks, it’s no wonder Nyjah rolled away with the gold medal. Check out his winning run below.
Nyjah’s big win isn’t the only news to come out of this year’s X Games, as the competition rolled on. Bucky Lasek brought down the house with his bronze medal winning run in Skateboard Vert. Here’s Bucky’s 3rd place run.
Last but not least, Julian Christianson took the gold medal for his perfect run at the Hometown Heroes event. And if you’ve been living under a rock, and don’t know who Julian is, he won the 2011 Make It Count contest finals at Skate Camp, and with that came Element sponsorship… Keep your eyes peeled, as this kid’s on a tear. Here’s Julian’s winning run.
Congratulations again to Bucky Lasek, Julian Christianson, and of course Nyjah Huston. And thank you to the all the fans that supported these guys.
