Wilkins said he'd previously estimated his chances of winning at "none," but he gave it all he had in the Texas heat. After the medal ceremony, Wilkins explained his initial loss for words following his victory. "It's both shock and anxiety," said Wilkins, who became just the seventh different skater to win gold on the vert ramp in the 20-year history of X Games. "I'm so happy."
