The 2016 X Games Real Moto results are in! In only its second year of running, the Real Moto contest has blown us away yet again with some of the sickest freeride and FMX edits in history.
Huge congratulations go out to this years winner, the mad man that is Steve Haughelstine! We can’t believe Steve, who worked as Ronnie Renner’s Gold medal winning filmer last year, created his entire video himself. Planning, directing, filming, editing – the lot. Pushing it on his own in gnarly, remote spots hours from civilization definitely ups the danger level, and it sounded like the X Games judges respected that along with his super creative line choices, imagination, steez, big dirty whips and insanely gnarly hits. Haug’s dual role as both rider and filmer means that he is now the proud owner of not one but TWO new shiny X Games Gold medals!
Mad props also go out to the kid Axell Hodges, who took home the Real Moto Fan Favourite award with a whopping 43% of the public vote in his first year competing in Real Moto.
