Stylemaster Rene Rinnekangas took silver and Mons Roisland took bronze, landing his switch backside double cork 1620 tailgrab for the first time at the X Games.
After it was all said and done, the rookie, who was the underdog in the event came on top. Henrickson broke history with winning two gold medals in his rookie debut and had this to say about it. “It’s been a great week,” Henrickson said. “I’m tripping still. It doesn’t really feel real yet. I feel I’m about to wake up soon. I don’t know what to say. I’m pretty speechless, honestly.”
