Japan’s Taka Higashino wins a record breaking 3rd Gold medal in X Games Moto X Freestyle ahead of American Adam Jones after throwing down a flawless run in the Staples Centre, LA. Higashino’s unique approach included a Kiss of Death backflip and a Rock Solid backflip in a pair of runs that both earned 90.00. Despite also scoring a 90.00 in his second run, Adam Jones and his one of a kind trick, the Rigamortis, earned silver as Higashino’s first run decided the tie.
