X Games veteran Bob Burnquist battled through a lower back injury to claim his 4th gold medal in the 7 years of the Big Air competition.
“The X Games have been a great event, being at this event as big as this stage with the skating this good, I couldn’t have done it without everyone who was there helping me out, including my wife,” said Burnquist. “I definitely couldn’t have done this alone.”
Burnquist beat out a field of young guns, including 15 year old Mitchie Brusco who took the silver with a massive 900 on the quarter pipe. Bronze medalist Nolan Monroe pulled off a HUGE McTwist, setting the record to date at a height of 20 feet 2 inches.
