LOS ANGELES – 23-year-old Lusk puts together a mind-boggling final run as he goes head-to head against Mat Rebeaud in the final round of the Moto X Freestyle.
“There’s no such thing as luck in our sport. It’s just one rider that rode better at the end of the day,” Lusk stated matter of fact after he donned the gold medal.
Lusk’s run consisted of an Indian air, a superman seat-grab backflip, a cliffhanger, an under-flip, a rock solid Indian air and a knack-knack flip that brought the sellout crowd to its feet.
Rebeaud put good effort in trying to knock out Lusk with his final run attempt. He stuck a one-handed can-can, a suicide flip and a no handed flip but was unable to top Lusk’s score.
“It was very close. Jeremy was running very good,” Rebeaud said. “A silver medal is good for me at the X Games. I’m happy.”
Taking the bronze for the night was Mike Mason who was pleased with the new “Knockout” format introduced this year at the Moto X Freestyle Final. He took out Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg to claim the third place spot.
“I brought my A game. The new format was awesome. It adds a new element to it,” Mason said.
Saturday night’s Moto X Freestyle final wraps up the third day of X Games 14. Check back tomorrow for more action from the Skateboard SuperPark final and the Rally Car Racing Super Special final.
