After broken records, massive airs, heart stopping accidents and a life-sized double loop display, the excitement at X Games 18 was at an all time high leading into Sunday’s Rallycross event. The crowd was not disappointed as Sebastian Loeb took an early lead and held onto it through the checkered flag.

Close on his tail, Ken Block and Brian Deegan put the pressure on Loeb through the twisting 0.7 mile long track on the streets of Downtown Los Angeles. Block, suffering from a punctured tire in lap 4, pressed on to clinch silver, making this his fourth X Games medal. Last years’ gold medalist, Brian Deegan, took the podium in third place after a false start pushed his starting position to the back of the pack.

Despite accidents and false starts plaguing the X Games Rallycross course, the 10 competitors fought to give fans and spectators a spectacular show leaving everything on the track.
