Ryan Villopoto has completed Snow BikeCross at the Winter X Games and, unfortunately, it did not go as well as expected. Villopoto was up front during practice and in a qualifying position during his heat, but crashed and did not return to a transfer spot. There was no last-chance qualifier so his adventure ended there and then.
"Bummed I crashed in my heat," Villopoto wrote on his social media accounts. "We had great speed all day, so disappointed to not have a shot at the podium in the final. Loved being here @XGames. We will be back next year with bit more preparation and time to get that [medal]." The results from the heat races and main event can be found below, so you can see how Josh Hill and Axell Hodges fared. Both riders qualified.
