David Godziek closed out an impressive series, taking the top spot again. Jake Leiva earned second place, and Pat Casey took third. The competition setup is back-to-back dirt kickers, with the points going to the rider with the best run. Check out some highlights:
Here’s a closer look at the winning runs:
