Dave Mirra called it out when we interviewed him a few days ago on the deck of the ramp, and he was absolutely right. Daniel Dhers took home the gold medal here at X Games for the second year in a row. However, the two other medalists were a bit of a surprise, but well-deserved.
For the Superpark final there were ten riders who each rode in a jam format similar to yesterday’s qualifying runs. Then the top five out of those ten rode in a “super final” so to speak for the podium spots.
Daniel Dhers returned with his back to back tricks and combos and put on an amazing show for the crowd, scoring more than ten points higher than the next rider. Diogo Canina will take the silver medal back to Greenville, North Carolina after firing out fast lines and huge tricks and transfers. And another Greenville/The Unit local Rob Darden is bringing back some hardware to North Carolina after putting together solid runs mixed with technical combos and high airs.
