SnoCross Adaptive – Finals
Mike Schultz won in dominating fashion, nearly a full minute ahead of Paul Thacker and E.J. Poplawski. Thacker avoided a big three-snowmobile pileup right out of the gates, working his way back into second place for the silver, his first-ever medal at X Games in nine appearances.
Tucker Hibbert came away with his ninth-straight gold medal and 10th gold medal overall in this event. With the win, he’s now tied for the most consecutive golds in a single discipline, matching the record set by Jamie Bestwick, who has nine golds in BMX Vert. Adam Renheim (Sweden) took silver, and Corin Todd finished third for the bronze.

Kevin Rolland of France earned a score of 93.33 and a gold medal with his best run, beating out silver medalist Gus Kenworthy (USA, 92.33) and bronze medalist Benoit Valentin (France, 90.66).
