It took 11 attempts and a battle between two astounding athletes to finally watch one walk away with the gold. The two riders, Matt Buyten and Ronnie Renner, did not show any signs of letting up throughout the competition thus creating a long and suspenseful event. The duel between Matt and Ronnie is not an uncommon event in the X Games for they have been rivals for a long time. Ronnie completely shattered the record that was set last year by Matt Buyten who is a two time defending champion of the Moto X Step Up event. The record jump last year was merely 37 feet and this year it was crushed by 10 feet bringing it up to 47 feet of gnarly altitude, way to go Ronnie!! This video gave us all chills here at ASN, even in the 100 degree weather!! Peace!
