'I love Germany. The last time I rode in this stadium was in 2006 when it was snowing. It's great to be back. I’m now looking forward to LA where I’d like to pull another gold medal out. I’m going to have to – it’s my home town!' Jeremy Twitch Stenberg
Munich (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
Monster Energy’s motocross team led the podium with a double medal finish in the Moto X Best Whip contest, fiercely contested on the second day of action at X Games Munich.
Following his success at X Games Barcelona where he picked up his first Gold medal, Edgar Torronteras came out of the blocks firing and pulled some of the most exaggerated whip variations of all the competitors, easily drawing the loudest cheers from the crowd.
“My whips were insane tonight. I have been working hard and it feels good. I need to practice my difficult tricks, getting those combos really good. All the guys better be watching out in LA – ET is coming,” said Torronteras.
Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg by contrast started slowly but similar to his strategy in Barcelona, he started pushing the level of his whips to the limit around the half way mark of the six-minute contest. Judged solely by the legions of X Games twitter fans across the globe, Twitch’s score was soon far out of reach at the top of the leader board.
The checkered flag brought around each of the riders final attempts, ensuring a huge display of whip tricks with all riders vying it out for the final two podium places.
Final standings had Stenberg way ahead on 65% followed by his Monster Energy team mate Torronteras picking up 14% of the votes. Congratulations also go out to teammate Nate Adams who finished fourth with massively high and stylish whips throughout.
Twitch was stoked on the win. “I love Germany. The last time I rode in this stadium was in 2006 when it was snowing. It's great to be back. I’m now looking forward to LA where I’d like to pull another gold medal out. I’m going to have to – it’s my home town!”
