1 Mins read

Defending X Games Gold medallist Ashley Fiolek returned to LA to take gold once again in the Moto X Super X Women’s final last night.

“Christmas came early this year!” said Fiolek. “This is a great way to get the weekend started, and now I can sit back and enjoy the rest of the X Games.”

Silver and Bronze medals went to 2008 Gold medalist Tarah Gieger and Sara Price who battled it out for the entire race, with Gieger getting the upper hand to edge out Price.

“I am surprised and excited to finish in the top three,” Price said. “I didn’t realize that I had medaled until my mechanic told me.”
