Sequentially Speaking: Moto X
Post X Games Minneapolis, photographer Chris Tedesco dropped nine of his best Moto X sequences from on the ground action in Minneapolis, beginning with Colby Raha's complete domination of the newest event, Moto X Quarterpipe High Air. What follows are the remainder of Tedesco's jaw-dropping sequences from Minneapolis.
Silver medal air
Tyler Bereman earned a silver medal in Moto X Quarterpipe High Air, and this was how he did it.
This is another angle of Tyler Bereman conquering the Moto X Quarterpipe High Air event at X Games Minneapolis. The event borrows a little from Best Whip and Step Up, but then translates the air on a vertical takeoff.
Jarryd McNeil crashed out of Moto X Quarterpipe High Air on his first run of the event, and dislocated his right hip. Still, he is close to taking Quarterpipe High Air to the next level. Just give him time to heal.
Earlier in the week, Jarryd McNeil earned a gold medal in Moto X Step Up with a 44-foot jump. As you can see, he could've gone another few feet if time allowed.
Colby Raha's debut in Moto X Quarterpipe High Air was not only triumphant for his ability to air; it was also a rebirth of the Metal Mulisha's early days, complete with spiked shoulder pads and pro wrestling theatrics.
Variations amid double backflips? Yup, welcome to Levi Sherwood's version of 2017.
To say that Levi Sherwood has a casual lock on double flips would be an understatement, so we won't say it here.
Jackson 'Jacko' Strong was already injured heading into X Games but vowed to compete in Moto X Best Trick because he wanted to give the X Games crowd a good show. He took this run, scored a 91.00 and then sat out the remainder of the competition, earning a silver medal in the process.
