Sunday will feature six finals in X Games Barcelona, including two seen first on ESPN3. This includes BMX Street, where 10 riders will compete on obstacles like stairs and rails. According to ESPN, Garrett Reynolds is undefeated in the event in X Games competition. However, his last title came back in 2012, as this event did not take place during April's X Games in Brazil.
The other ESPN3 event is the Men's Skateboard Park Final. A group of 20 contenders will complete as many runs as possible in a 15-minute period, with athletes being judged on continuity, originality, degree of difficulty, variety and other factors. The top 10 advance to the next round, where the top three in each heat advance to the finals. Pedro Barros of Brazil is the defending champion in this event, having beaten silver-medalist Rune Glifberg by seven points.
The ESPN coverage of X Games Barcelona will feature four more finals, including Ford Rallycross. The only Rally Car event in the competition features competitors driving side by side around a race course that includes a jump. Formula One racer Scott Speed took home the gold in Brazil despite never having raced on dirt before. He was fortunate that some of the early favorites crashed out in that event, and now he will go head-to-head with those competitors once more, including Travis Pastrana and Tanner Foust. Also competing in this event is Bucky Lasek, a skateboarder coming off a gold in the Skateboard Vert earlier in these games.
Sunday will also feature two Moto X events: Best Whip and Step Up. In Best Whip, six competitors have two chances to show off their greatest whip move. The winner is determined solely by Twitter vote, making Jeremy Stenberg the man to beat. Stenberg has over 84,000 followers on Twitter and has won this even three straight times.
"I love my fans and I make sure to stay up on my social media," Stenberg said about his success in this event.
Step Up, meanwhile, also has a finals-only format. Six X Games Barcelona competitors will have two attempts to clear a bar from 30 feet away. The bar will be subsequently raised at the end of each round, with the last remaining athlete declared the winner. Ronnie Renner won this event last year in Los Angeles with a record-setting 47-foot jump but dropped to silver in Brazil behind rookie Bryce Hudson. Hudson was then injured a day after winning the gold, setting the stage for a Barcelona rivalry match between Renner and Matt Buyten, whose record Renner broke in Los Angeles.
The last final of X Games Barcelona is GoPro BMX Big Air, where each athlete performs a trick over a 55-foot gap and then another on a quarterpipe. Each contestant gets four runs, which are judged on style, creativity and amplitude. The best scores from each contestant are ranked to determine the winner. Zack Warden will return to defend his gold medal from Brazil, but three-champion winner Kevin Robinson will miss the event with a concussion.
