Ryan Sheckler wasn’t quite in top form this past week at X Games 17. But Oakley’s skate team superstar displayed his natural talent in grabbing the Skateboard Street Bronze amidst fierce competition from the young phenoms on the course. Ryan’s full runs didn’t materialize the way he’d hoped, with the only complete planned run ending with a long, solid rail grind.
Starring Roles: Ryan Sheckler Set to Defend Skateboard Street Gold at X Games 17, Ripper Milton Martinez to Make Debut
Ryan Sheckler is focused. Oakley’s superstar skate team rider has been in top form – shooting for a prominent video part and preparing to defend his X Games Skateboard Street Gold at Summer X 17. But make no mistake, as much as he’s intensely pumped for this week’s action sports spectacle in Los Angeles, he’s relaxed and enjoying the moment. Don’t forget Oakley’s own Argentinian ripper Milton Martinez, who is, without a doubt, one of the most talented street skaters on the Planet. The catch? The dude hasn’t ever competed in an X Games on American soil.
