Laia Sanz introduced herself to the X Games audience by virtually lapping the field in her Women's Enduro X debut at X Games Foz last April. But to her Spanish fans, it came as no surprise. The 28-year-old trials specialist from Catalonia, Spain, has won 13 trials world championships, 10 European trials titles and has led her Spanish team to five team trials world titles. Last May, she raced to X Games Women's Enduro X gold in front of her home crowd at X Games Barcelona, then immediately flew to Portugal to capture the women's endurocross world championship the very next day.
