Tucker Hibbert takes home his ninth consecutive gold medal at the X Games Aspen
Leatt Athlete Tucker Hibbert had a flawless race at the X Games Aspen and took home his 9th consecutive gold medal. The now 14-time X Games medalist took the holeshot and led every lap of both his qualifying race and the final Thursday evening at Buttermilk Mountain.
Tucker had this to say after the race:
“I feel honored to win nine golds in-a-row. It’s an awesome experience to come to X Games, compete and have the success we [the team] have had. It feels great. All the hard work is paying off and it’s a lot of fun.”
“I didn’t have any expectations for the track. Every year it’s different so I don’t try to anticipate what it’s going to be. It’s definitely an advantage to be able to adapt and ride any kind of track and do it well. I think that’s a key to my success. With my experience and all the different conditions I’ve raced in, it’s an advantage for me.”
“We got in some really solid testing before X Games. Steve from Speedwerx worked hard with us to get our clutching setup for the holeshot and it showed.”
“I don’t have a master plan or big goal of winning a certain amount of medals. I want to keep racing as long as I’m competitive and am still enjoying it.”
