The X Games are underway—you knew they were underway, right?—and last night's competition in Los Angeles proved worth watching, as Ronnie Renner and Matt Buyten waged a historic battle in the Step Up competition (one finally won by Renner with a 47-foot high jump) and then a Best Trick final filled with as much controversy as it was landed tricks.

Aussie Clinton Moore learned the hard way what can happen with a gnarly crash, after going horizontal on a 720 attempt and then watching as a handler was unable to control his bike and ran over his broken body as it lay in the dirt. (Fellow Australian Jacko Strong won the event.)
