“The Volt” electrified the crowd At STAPLES Center; Kyle Loza, competing in his first ever X Games event, busted out a heart-stopping trick of his own design – “The Volt” – to win gold in The Moto X Best Trick Final. The first day of ESPN X Games 13, which saw, among other feats, a new record for Thursday X Games attendance: between STAPLES Center and The Home Depot Center, 30,374 fans took in all the action sports on display.



The Volt, which features Loza doing a full 360° turn above the seat while his bike was airborne, has been in the works for some while. “I’ve been working on it for a long time,” he said, noting that his fellow riders had been urging him to perfect flips, which have captivated the Moto X world in recent years. The Volt, he said, is “gnarly – you have to do the whole trick before your bike peaks out on you!”
