VISTA, Calif., July 24, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The medals keep coming! Monster Energy congratulates team rider Felix Prangenberg on claiming the silver medal in BMX Street on the third day of X Games 2022 in Vista, California, on Friday. In the final session featuring the world’s best riders, the 24-year-old from Cologne, Germany, took silver as his fourth career X Games medal.
At the end of Day three of X Games 2022, the Monster Energy team had claimed a total of 10 medals (3 gold, 6 silver, 1 bronze).
Presented by Monster Energy as the official energy drink partner of X Games, the 65th edition of X Games is contested with no spectators in attendance and broadcast live to global audiences. For five action-packed days, viewers from across the globe get to witness X Games history written by the world elite in BMX, Moto X, and Skateboarding. More than 110 athletes from 14 countries are competing for a total of 57 medals across 19 medal disciplines.
On Friday, the California Training Facility (CA|TF) in Vista hosted the BMX Street final. The technical course featured a rectangular layout, lined by a 4-foot quarterpipe that directs riders into a Euro gap feature with ledge and wallride options. Further obstacles include several eight-stair handrails, banks, bump-to-rail features, and Hubba ledges.
In the final event, ten riders attacked the course in a 36-minute jam session with the best run counting. Five countries were represented: Australia, Mexico, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Monster Energy’s Prangenberg came to X Games 2022 fresh off a recent second place finish at Simple Session in Europe. Known for his complex technical combinations, the German BMX pro brought a deep bag of tricks and creative lines to the California Training Facility.
In his highest-scoring run, Prangenberg put down a technical peg grind up the 8-stair rail to 360 tailwhip off, 360 to fakie on the quarterpipe, Cab 360 off the platform, nose bonk the quarterpipe, 180 lookback the stair set, peg grind 180 the long rail, ice pick grind the big rail, and opposite 360 off the stage for the silver medal.
Known as one of the most progressive BMX street riders, Prangenberg now owns four X Games medals (1 gold, 3 silver). The German team rider stoked audiences with his Monster Energy-produced ‘Urge’ video part.
