Monster Energy's Vince Byron Battles to Silver in BMX Big Air at the X Games Barcelona 2013

Barcelona, Spain (PRWEB) May 20, 2013

Monster Energys Vince Byron has taken the silver medal in a closely fought final in BMX Big Air at X Games Barcelona 2013. Its the second medal of the weekend for the Australian, who earned the bronze on Friday night in BMX Vert.

BMX Big Air, the last event of X Games Barcelona 2013, sees the top eight riders hitting the big air ramps massive gap and 27-foot quarter pipe. Each rider gets four runs with the top single runs determining the podium finishers.

The competition was thick tonight, with all the riders throwing down and earning solid scores to prove itby the end of the night, the top six riders were all within four points of each other. After slamming on his first run, success came for Byron on his second run. After a crazy 360 double downside tailwhip over the gap, Byron pulled a no handed 540 on the quarter pipehe was the only rider to pull a big 540 this evening. His score, a 90.00, proved enough for the silver.


"Two medals in one weekendIm stoked, said Byron immediately after Big Air. I didnt get hurt too badly so I couldnt be happier. Colton (Satterfield, bronze medalist) and I just got a place together, and now were on the podium together. Were making memories day by day.

Byrons first X Games was just two years ago, but his medal count thus far has been impressive. In 2011 he took silver in Big Air and bronze in Vert, and last year in LA he took silver in Vert. This makes five career medals for Byron.
