Scotty Cranmer takes his third X Games gold, beating out Ryan Nyquist and Pat Casey. Scotty has always had a love affair with X Games, either taking the win or going down in a blaze of glory. In the finals, he proved he’s as consistent as ever, laying down a couple of solid runs and clinching the win fairly early, and able to take a victory lap. Nyquist gets the silver, upping his X Games medal victories and Pat Casey gets his first medal in his second X Games. Look for a photo gallery shortly with a video just after that.
