Grant Takes Lead For First X Gold

Los Angeles, Calif. - Josh Grant made up for lost time in the start to take over the lead in lap 11 for his first X Games gold during the Moto X Super X Men's Finals Thursday at The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

"I feel great, this is a great feeling. It's right up there with my win in Anaheim," Grant said. "It was a close race but to come away with the win is great. The atmosphere and the people are fantastic here at the X Games. If I wasn't competing, I would still be here."

Grant trailed two-time Moto X Super X gold medalist Josh Hansen, who took the holeshot for an early wide lead in the race. After consist, smooth transitions, Grant took the lead in lap 11 and finished with a celebratory fist pump over the finish line.

Justin Brayton of Murrieta, Calif. stayed consistent and made his move after Grant to take the silver.

Hansen, whose father took the World Championship medal at the Coliseum in 1982, finished third for bronze.
