Nate Adams had seen the scenario before -- twice, in fact. For the third consecutive year, Adams won the LG World Championships of Freestyle Motocross at the Fairplex in Pomona, earning $30,000, and Jeremy Stenberg finished second. With the course still engulfed in a cloud of dust from a run that momentarily put Stenberg in first, Adams used the final run of the night to land a 360 and a number of back-flip variations, earning a score of 93.80.

Nate Adams waited seven years to win his second gold medal in Moto X Freestyle with the victory on Friday night. He hardly waited 24 hours before adding another gold, winning the Moto X Speed and Style competition Saturday. "Sometimes it goes in your favor and sometimes it doesn't," Adams said. "And sometimes it really goes in your favor. I guess this week is just my week. " Technically speaking, Adams, the returning silver medalist, did not cross the finish line first in the Speed and Style race, as Mike Mason claimed the checkered flag by 1.53 seconds.

A year ago Sunday, Jeremy Stenberg's life turned upside down. From 35 feet high, having been flung from his motorcycle while attempting a back flip, he watched helplessly as hard-packed earth rushed toward him. Miraculously, he landed on his feet.

Taka Higashino defended his title again at the X Games. After Adam Jones scored a 90.00 on his second run, matching Higashino's first-run mark, Higashino churned out another 90.00 to win his third straight gold in the Moto X freestyle event Thursday at Staples Center. Higashino and Travis Pastrana are the only two to three-peat in the event. "I didn't think about Jones, focused on myself and fixed the little mistakes," Higashino said of his second run. With the second 90.00, Higashino's second-best score beat Jones' first-round mark of 82.66.

The Dew Action Sports Tour will conclude its second season with the PlayStation Pro this weekend in Orlando, Fla. Despite the absence of several notable athletes, and complaints among others, the season and the tour already are being labeled a success. Attendance is up over last year and, though TV ratings are down, corporate support has grown to where sponsorships are sold out, according to Wade Martin, general manager of what is commonly referred to as the Dew Tour.

The idea was to spend some time with Luke the Barber so he could take 10 to 20 years off my life so I could be really sick and blend in with all the other dudes for the opening of the X Games Thursday. So I stopped by LuKaRo, Luke's barber shop in Beverly Hills, to see what he had in mind, and he introduced me to his wife, an experience so frightening -- he was right, it took 10 to 20 years off my life. (Surprisingly, there's no charge for this, even though it's in Beverly Hills.

In the gold medal race, Nate Adams scored 89.33 style points, beating out Travis Pastrana's 88.00. But Pastrana finished 5.97 seconds ahead of Adams in the race, giving him a total score of 93.97 and the gold medal in the moto X speed & style event.
