WHAT:             Over the course of the next 10 days, X Games will reveal the top 10 moments of 2018, beginning today with Mitchie Brusco earning his first gold in Skateboard Big Air at X Games Minneapolis, and ending with a full Best of X Games 2018 show on World of X Games on ABC on Saturday, December 29.

Brusco finally earned his first gold medal at X Games in his 11th appearance, and all it took was a trick that only he has landed on a full-sized mega ramp in competition: the 1080. Actually, it took more than that: a kickflip 180 over the 50-foot gap to the 1080. Listen to the call, with Bob Burnquist saying, “He did a 1080,” as though he almost cannot believe what he just saw.

X Games will reveal one moment each day via XGames.com, and X Games Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, all culminating with a recap show hosted by World of X Games host, Brandon Graham, and X Games commentator Craig McMorris.
