Kyle Baldock and Colton Walker take home silver and bronze, respectively, in BMX Dirt Finals at X Games Sydney 2018. The action popped off in front of an excited crowd at the Spotless Stadium inside Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday afternoon in Australia.
Ten of the world’s best BMX riders took the course, which included three jumps, for their chance at earning X Games glory. Each rider was given three attempts, which made for an exhilarating contest that was action-packed and filled with some of the heaviest BMX tricks in the game.
Baldock, 27, is no stranger to this event and definitely had his heart set on gold being on his home turf and having his mom there to watch for the first time ever. Unfortunately, he had to settle for silver today, but still rode with plenty of passion and sent it for the fans.
“Just to be here and actually have X Games in Sydney and have my mom here for the first time ever is so good,” said Baldock. "On the last run I just went for it — X Games mode. All the boys made me go out and send it.”
