What is your favorite Summer X event to watch?
Nopolian Double Front Flip
Nopolian is the most insane person in the X Games ever. He made the double front flip in the third. He made it look so easy and did it again in the next round round four, but unfortunately he didn't get a medal. If Nopolian had done another trick on the ramp he would have had gold for sure.
Post, rate, and stay cool. Thank, D-fence04 :)
What do you think is the best BMX trick?
By Travis P.28
The reason why John brown won gold is because he went first and he came with the highest points from round one to round 5 bob had a couple of crashes.And also if u thought Travis Pastrana's back flip was awsome and breathtaking hear this Travis Pastrana is going to do a backflip 360!!!first he will go jump up the ramp and do a back flip then does a 360 to land it!!!will he make it or not ur guess just post it to me then tonight we will see if he lands it. What did you think of John Brown's performance?
As you probably know the X games have been going on. Most people don't like the X games, but I think they're really cool. Its exciting to see guys on dirt bikes, skateboards, and BMX bikes do crazy tricks. I remember watching the X games with my cousins when Travis Pastrana landed the first ever double backflip. We went crazy! It was the coolest thing I had ever seen someone do on a dirt bike. These guys are extreme athletes. I don't think I could go off a puny ramp let alone do backflips off giant ramps They put their bodies on line every time they go off a jump. Something could go wrong at any moment and they could lose their ability to walk, but they do it anyway. Would you compete in the X Games? What event?
