2. GoPro BMX Big Air Final
Like the Big Air skate event — huge drop, huge ramp and gap, huge vertical ramp — only with a perineum-imperiling bike seat beneath each rider.
So far the event has seen the gold medal pass between two riders, Zack Warden and Chad Kagy, in the three previous X Games competitions this year. Riders have the option of going conservative to start or putting it all out there from the beginning, making for high drama throughout the event.
