PHOTOS: X Games Austin Day Three + Four

x games-chris doyleX Games 2014 as in full force over the weekend in Austin, TX with a huge turnout to see the best in BMX, Skate, Moto and RallyCross. With a musical lineup that included headliner Kanye West on Saturday and Flaming Lips on Sunday, attendees were entertained in a numerous variety of ways. The popular Skateboard Street was won handily by Nyjah Huston, who took gold in the event with a score of 95.00, the best ever in the competition. Silver and bronze was a closer race with Luan Oliveira and Alec Majerus winning medals, respectively. Unfortunately, weather played a role in delaying and eventually canceling the Moto X Freestyle competition due to windy conditions.

BMX Park was won by Austinite, Chase Hawk, who took the gold for his first time since he started competing at X Games in 2006. Hawk came as close to making podium in 2011 with a fourth place finish. Kyle Baldock captured his second gold medal for BMX Dirt, having won his first at X Games Foz do IguaƧu 2013.
