A stylish rider with a creative eye and a large social media following thanks to heaps of eye-catching clips, Hodges earned Best Trick silver at his X Games debut in 2016. Favored to medal in the new Moto X QuarterPipe discipline at XG MPLS 2017, Hodges crashed while training for Step Up and suffered a broken right radius (wrist), missing X Games. "I was crushed." Back for 2018, Hodges, 21, is scheduled to compete in 3 Moto X contests at XG MPLS: QuarterPipe High Air, Step Up and Best Whip. Says he's more focused on QuarterPipe High Air and Best Whip. "I really want to get a QuarterPipe win under my belt." At the end of the weekend, he achieved just that.
