Thor's Mike Brown found his way to the top of the podium at the X-Games on Sunday with his EnduroCross first win and his first gold medal in X-Games competition. With all eyes on Enduro X as the final event of X-Games Los Angeles, Brown worked out the kinks in his heat race – where he finished second – to keep his KTM out front until the end of the 10-lap main to take the win. With the victory Brown jumped up in the points standings and now sits in second, just eight points back of first.

Thor's Taylor Robert also put together a good showing at the X-Games, starting the night with a heat race win. With good gate pick in the main event, Robert was able to run a solid race, finishing fifth and is now tied for third in the standings. Also making it out for the event was Thor's Destry Abbott, who made his way to the main event through the first LCQ. He kept a solid pace in the main event and finished seventh.

In the Women's Enduro X final, Thor's Maria Forsberg backed up her gold medal from last year as she took the win in come-from-behind fashion. After a decent start, Forsberg had to make up some time on the leader, but she never gave up and managed to pull off the victory.
