X Games’ Latest Video Competition Real Moto Starts Today on XGames.com

Full Real Moto Episode Airs September 20 on ESPN2

The fifth installment of the Real Series 2020, Real Moto, drops six never-before-seen video parts on XGames.com and YouTube today. This year’s Real Moto athletes are Vicki Golden, Colby Raha, Josh Hill, Corey Creed, Jackson Strong and Cody Webb. This year, the unspoken theme among Real Moto is firsts, and a number of new firsts for Real Moto are tackled, including: First No-Handed Frontflip by a woman in Real Moto (Golden), First Handrail Grind On A Dirt Bike in Real Moto (Raha), First Fakie Treeride in a Real Moto part (Webb), First Dirt-To-Dirt Frontflip in Real Moto, First Dirt-To-Dirt Over Airplane in Real Moto and First Dirt-To-Dirt Double Backflip in Real Moto (Strong). A full World of X Games episode will air Saturday, September 20 on ESPN2, featuring all six video parts, behind-the-scenes footage and athlete interviews. 

Four-time X Games gold medalist Vicki Golden becomes the first female FMX athlete to compete in Real Moto. Constantly pushing the sport of women’s motocross, Golden has competed against full male fields since 2013 when she became the first woman to compete in an FMX event at X Games. She is the first female motocross rider to win three consecutive X Games gold medals when she did so in Women’s MTX Racing in 2013. In 2019, Golden became the first female to backflip the moonbooter ramp on the Nitro Circus Tour and earned the record for riding through 13 wooden walls of fire during History Channel’s Evel Live 2.
