Among all the impressive victories Saturday, it was defending gold medalist Colton Satterfield who had the most shining moment after nailing one of the toughest tricks in BMX.

Satterfield made history by becoming the first BMXer to nail a double flair on the Big Air. He also stuck a no-handed cork 7 over the gap beforehand. Let’s just say his buddies nearly humped him afterwards.

Former Formula One driver Scott Speed also had a helluva run, taking his third Rally Car Racing gold medal after what he described as “the craziest race I’ve ever done in my life.”

“The car got destroyed and after that I figured it was done, but I kept hounding the leader and he made a mistake and I was able to get by,” said Speed.

This race is fun to watch, and I’m sure it was adrenaline heaven for those in it.
