Mike Mason added another piece of hardware to his mantle after securing gold with a combination of technical racing skills and a heavy arsenal of tricks to come out on top of Switzerland’s Mat Rebeaud. The gold in Barcelona makes two golds for Mason in the event as he won the event in X Games LA 2012.
“I’ve been to Barcelona a couple times, the people have been super cool to me, they have been cheering us on, and the city is awesome, and there is a lot of cool things to do around here,” said Mason. “I just came off a four-month tour and now that we have five weeks until X Games Munich, it’s time to hit the moto track and come to these guys’ houses and so some speed and style runs.”
Bronze medalist Nate Adams, who has made the podium the past three X Games Speed & Style events he’s competed in, managed to squeeze into the finals after impressing the judges in the semi-finals despite getting a slow start after falling early in the race.
