Highlights and Results[edit]

Day 1 - Thursday, August 2nd[edit]

  • Jake Brown lost his board on his way up the quarterpipe during a skateboard run in the Big Air contest, falling over 40 feet to the floor. Incredibly, he managed to walk away from the fall, but suffered a bruised liver, fractured wrist, and bruised lung. In replays, it was shown that he changed direction at the last second which forced his back foot to push the board away from him. This allowed him and his board to follow in different directions. Jake Brown would be released from the hospital on August 4 and was at the Moto X Freestyle preliminaries though he was walking with a cane.
