Ronnie Faisst took on X Games 18 Speed and Style earning the 5th medal this weekend for the Metal Mulisha taking home the Bronze! Prior to this event Faisst decked out his Compound with his own Speed and Style course, putting in lots of seat time on the bike for this event.
During tonight’s Speed and Style, Ronnie took on Buyten in his first heat semifinals laying down a really clean run out on the track.
Faisst was charging through the whoops laying down big tricks with perfect extentions off the Speed and Style ramp locking him in, winning his first heat! Faisst was ready for his next round, up against Mike Mason.
Faisst put up a fight dropping into the first corner and was trailing him for clean pass. It was looking close for Faisst but the checkered flag came to soon. With the field of riders running down their eliminations, our good buddy Edgar Torronteras took on a gnarly crash coming off the ramp during his semifinal heat against Adams, with what look to be a under rotated flip. We hope you get better Edgar and have a fast recovery! Mason was up against Adams and grabbed the holeshot down ramp and held it together for the Gold. With Edgar not being able to race against Ronnie this matched up Faisst to claim a Bronze medal, which is now his third straight in Speed and Style! Congrats Faisst you earned it and next year you will snatch that Gold!
