The popular Best Trick competition was held following Best Whip on Friday night, and Higashino’s Rock Solid Backflip earned him silver, which would be his second piece of X Games Los Angeles 2012 hardware. Saturday night was host to Speed & Style and Women’s Moto X Racing. Monster Energy’s Nate Adams, X Games 2011 Speed & Style Gold Medal winner, returned to competition following a ten-month hiatus due to an injury sustained following X Games 2011. Adams sailed through quarter-finals and semi-finals and would go on to face Mike Mason in the finals. Adams would walk away with the silver following the head-to-head battle. The silver would mark his 13th X Games medal, and would put him in elite company by tying him with Travis Pastrana as the most decorated Moto X athlete in X Games history.
