Colton Walker Takes 4th at X Games in BMX Park

Author: Olivia Reed

Hometown hero Colton Walker did not disappoint at X Games in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Wisconsin resident, who lives just across the state border now, came back to his birthplace to make his mark. Colton described the entire event as surreal as he normally drives to Minnesota to ride for fun, making the commute for X Games is unreal.

Walker was up against defending Park champion Dennis Enarson, defending Gold in BMX Park Best Trick Kyle Baldock and Monster Energy riders Kevin Peraza, Mike Varga and Pat Casey. With steep competition the contest was anyone’s game.

After a few slip ups, but with the hometown crowd behind him Walker put down on his final run. The ever calm rider pulled through and put down a run that landed him just off the podium. For his first X Games appearance, Walker is taking home fourth place with more motivation than ever to land on the podium next year.
