James Foster put on a stellar performance at the X Games Sydney, scoring a silver medal in BMX Big Air in front of a packed house on the final day of competition.
The contest was a heated match between some of the world’s best BMX riders who were all putting it on the line for their chance at X Games glory. The competition saw plenty of action from the field of eight who were given four runs to land their best tricks in front of an excited, sprawling crowd in Sydney.
Foster was riding with an unabashed passion and determination and secured the podium with his third run, which consisted of a massive backflip triple tail whip into quad flip that was easily over 13” and was landed super clean.
Judges awarded the veteran 90.33 for his efforts, which was just shy of the gold medal position forcing Foster, the two-time defending champ to settle for second place.
