First a new shoe and a now new contest win. P-Rod takes gold at X Games Street.
After qualifying second on Friday, Paul Rodriguez came through in Saturday’s finals and took home another X Games gold medal. P-Rod was consistent as always putting down both a switch flip and switch heel down the twelve, as well as some other rail bangers, which was enough to beat out Nyjah Huston in second and Adam “I f—king love skateboarding” Dyet in third. But real the question is… Nick Dompierre fifth? Well, if only ESPN would have allowed us to film the finals, we might have an answer for you.
