All good things come to an end. X Games 17 from LA has been the best competition in a few years. Nate Adams style and not his speed carried him to another win at X Games 17. Although he didn’t cross the finish line first, Nate Adams’ style points gave him the X Games gold in Moto X Speed & Style over the speedy Mike Mason. “I just found out I won,” a surprised and excited Adams said. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet. I am speechless I don’t even know what to say. I put in the work and I was doubtful of myself coming into this year honestly. I guess I need to be more doubtful more often.” In last year’s event, Adams just missed the top spot and took silver, but 2011 is turning out to be his year as it is his second gold of X Games 17. His first came in Friday night’s Moto X Freestyle event.
MotoX debuted a new event at X Games 17 and it was an epic fail. EnduroX was awful. Outside of having no riders that even moved the interest meter the competition was horrible. Hopefully the minds far greater than ours will huddle up and cut this failure. EnduroX was a horrible way to end a stellar weekend of the best competition X Games has seen in a few years.
