X Games Austin 2015 got its start this weekend on the front steps of the state capital in Downtown Austin, TX with Moto X Step up, which saw Ronnie Renner once again taking gold, climbing 35 feet off the lip of the takeoff. On Friday X Games was in full swing at the Circuit of the Americas for Skate and BMX vert where Jamie Bestwick was dethroned as the king of the vert ramp, and PLG took back the crown in skate. Daniel Sandoval returned in BMX Park and went from Bronze last year, to gold. Friday ended with skateboard big air, where Bob Burnquist was able to take home the gold despite breaking his wrist just hours earlier in practice. Tom Schaar won the bronze showing X Games what the future of big air dominance will look like. Joywave came out to excite a crowd in the Austin360 Amphitheater, while Nicki Minaj ended the night of the SuperStage.
