In years past, Kyle Baldock had been invited to compete at X Games Los Angeles, but he always seemed to struggle with adjusting to the courses. This year, Baldock turned heads when he won double gold medals in BMX Park and Dirt at X Games Foz. I kind of relate it to my early days in BMX -- you don't really care, and you end up doing well because you're just focused on riding and not making excuses because everything's not perfect, says Baldock on his formula for winning double gold medals.
