X Games 17 – Day 3

Only 1 day remains of  X Games 17, but I have no time to feel sad about it.  I’m still excited about Moto X Speed and Style. Nate Adams has won the gold medal last night. He edged out Adam Jones in quarterfinals, Ronnie Faisst in semifinals and in the end Mike Mason in the finals. Mike Mason has been leading ahaed of Nate, but the Destroyer had better tricks. So, Mike Mason captured the silver medal.

Ronnie Faisst and Carey Hart met in the battle for bronze. Ronnie Faisst was faster and even pulled out better tricks as Hart and took home the medal.

I must tell, that there are several injuries in this year’s X Games. Jeremy Stenberg crashed hard in his third lap of four in the quarterfinal heat against Carey. He broke his tib in left leg and heal on the right leg.

A big bummer was also Ashley Fiolek‘s crash during yeterday’s practice for women’s Racing. She suffered concussion and for her safety was pulled out of the event. Her father and Honda manager found it better for her not to race due to an increased risk of post concussion crashes.

For the last day of X Games 17 are scheduled both men’s and women’s Enduro races and RallyCross.
