At X Games Fox do Iguacu, BMX Big Air veteran Kevin Robinson dropped in to kick off another year of competition, only to be carted off the MegaRamp on a stretcher after suffering a mild concussion. Robinson recovered from his injury, but he remained off the bike for X Games Barcelona and X Games Munich. As X Games Los Angeles approached, Robinson slowly made the announcement public -- he was retiring from X Games competition following one last go in L.A. With runs preapproved by his wife and doctor, Robinson dropped into the MegaRamp at Irwindale Raceway, and one of the sport's most progressive BMX Big Air legends made a graceful departure. Robinson now focuses on anti-bullying rallies at schools throughout New England.
