For a fourth straight year, X Games is rolling out the Real Moto event with some heavy hitters. The concept, created from similar contests for skate and snowboarding, will feature six freeriding athletes in a one-round, winner-take-all format.
The judge-awarded X Games gold, silver, and bronze medals will be announced as part of an hour-long World of X Games ABC broadcast on Sunday, August 21, at 1 p.m. EDT. The Fan Favorite, which is voted on by you, the fans, will be announced on XGames.com on Monday, August 27. Voting ends on Sunday, August 26.
2017 Real Moto gold medalist Kris Foster is back to take on 2017 silver medalist and Fan Favorite Axell Hodges, whom you know from his amateur moto days. EnduroCross Champion Colton Haaker makes his debut, and Colby Raha and Brian McCarty are also featured.
