Dennis Enarson competes in the BMX street final at X Games Minneapolis on July 20, 2018 in Minneapolis. 

 

MINNEAPOLIS – After posting a 90.66 in the second round, then actually improving on it in the third, Dennis Enarson maybe could have expected more than silver at the X Games on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Instead, it wasn’t enough to top Australia’s Logan Martin, whose 93.33 in the second round held up to win him gold. Another Australian, Kyle Baldock, was third.

Enarson’s silver is his first X Games medal in BMX park since winning gold in Austin in 2016. It was his sixth medal in the discipline, and his 10th X Games medal overall. The 28-year-old from San Diego made his X Games debut in 2007.

The X Games champ from last year, Kevin Peraza, finished just off the podium in fourth with an 88.33, just .33 points back of Baldock. Other Americans in the field were Colton Walker, Larry Edgar, 2017 bronze medalist Daniel Sandoval, Gary Young and Mykel Larrin.

Some if not all of that field will look to make the U.S. Olympic Team as BMX park makes its debut in 2020.
