The top 10 skaters that competed in the X Games finals showed up ready to skate and were throwing themselves down the obstacles and showing why they are considered the best in the business. Chris Cole who had been victorious in last year’s X Games was once again given top honors as the Gold Medalist in Men’s Skate Street Finals.Chris Cole not only won skate street, but won best trick which gave him a grand total winnings of $60,000 for the day. Not too shabby. When asked about the win Cole said, “I’m just happy I have a golden ticket for next year.” Cole was referring to the fact that he doesn’t have to skate in the prelims to make it into the top 10 next year. Who knows, maybe Chris Cole will have a three-peat in 2008.Congratulations to everyone who placed in X Games 13!Check out some clips from Street Best Trick:
