Moto X Freestyle
Thursday Night at X-Games included DC riders Andre Villa and Nate Adams. Nate, sporting Jeremy McGrath's signature DC motocross gear, came off a big year in 2011 with 2 gold medals, hoping to repeat in 2012. Andre and Nate are both coming off serious injuries but looked great in competition. Andre had a great first run but in the final moments, he got hung up and had a hard crash, and hit his head pretty good. So, he was unable to do his second run. Nates past injury didn't show as he was in prime form. Nates patented one handed take off and 360 nac were flawless. However, he tied the score of the bronze medal winner, and a scoring countback was not in Nates favor. Regardless, Nate launched his web series "The Adams Family" at a party after the competition, to a group of industry folks and fans. The end product was amazing. Get well Andre and wish Nate good luck on Saturday in Speed and Style, where DC's Robbie Maddison will be competing as well.
