    Winners

    Best Male Athlete: Ryan Nyquist
    Nyquist, 25, who competes in the dirt and park disciplines of bicycle stunt, and at one time even the vert competition, has medalled in Dirt every year at the X Games since 1997. Winning 11 straight Vans Triple Crown Dirt competitions in his professional career, Ryan Nyquist won both Dirt and Park in both Vans Triple Crown contests this year. Nyquist has the most momentum of any rider coming into X Games this year. As the only rider to win double gold in Dirt and Park in the same year (X Games IX, 2003), Nyquist has the chance to repeat the dual crown at X Games X.

    Best Female Athlete: Dallas Friday
    Friday, 17, is the defending champion coming into this year’s X Games. Winning eight of the nine pro contests she entered in 2003, Friday walked away with the 2003 Pro Tour, World Cup and Vans Triple Crown titles. Since her start at X Games in 2000 at the age of thirteen where Dallas became the youngest wakeboarder to take home a medal, Friday has never left the X Games without Silver or Gold.
