By James Brady

That’s a wrap for the 2016 X Games in Austin, as Sunday saw five more gold medals awarded.

After four days and more than a dozen gold medals handed out, the 2016 X Games in Austin have come to an end. Sunday was the final day, featuring five different medal-eligible events, beginning with the BMX dirt finals and ending with the motocross best trick finals.

It was an exciting day of action, and it was an exciting shot on the BMX Dirt Finals early in the day. That event was completely dominated by Kevin Peraza, who earned a score of 88.0 for his runs, soundly defeating Ben Wallace in second place, who scored an 81.0 for his efforts. James Foster took home the bronze with a score of 73.0.

One of the most exciting events of the tournament, the Men’s Skateboard Park finals, concluded with Pedro Barros taking the gold with a score of 90.33. Curren Caples and Chris Russell came up behind him with an 87.66 and an 83.33, respectively.

In the Moto X Quarterpipe Final, Tom Pages impressed everyone in attendance with this ridiculous showing:

Josh Sheehan and Clinton Moore took the silver and bronze in the event, with Pages posting a score of 92.66 for the gold medal. Sheehan came in at 85.00 and Moore at 84.33. In the Moto X Best Whip competition, Jarryd McNeil took home the gold with 39 percent of the fan vote. Axell Hodges and Edgar Torronteras came in second.

As far as the final event, the always-exciting Moto X Best Trick competition goes …. well, see for yourself:
