Irvine, CA. (August 7, 2007) — Fox is pleased to acknowledge the success of our Team Athletes at this years X Games. Ricky Carmichael and Adam Jones both captured first ever Gold Medals while BMX star Scott Cranmer added to his X Games success with a Silver Medal.
The X Games held a special allure for the GOAT. “I’ve always felt like an outsider because I’ve never had my discipline in the X Games before and now to finally have it and be the first one to win a Gold Medal is awesome, said Carmichael who also collaborated with ESPN on the race format and design of the track.
Adam Jones used a variety of signature tricks to lock up his first ever X Games Gold Medal. His winning run included the Stripper Backflip and a Backflip Cliffhanger. Jones also secured a Silver Medal in Best Trick by nailing a Backflip Shaolin.
This year’s Silver Medalist in BMX Park, Scotty Cranmer, landed a Triple Tailwhip and was the only rider to pull a Front Flip over the spine, but in the end just missed out on the gold.
