Entering XG Minneapolis 2017 as a bronze medalist in both BMX Big Air and Dirt, Foster risked everything and won Big Air gold, landing a backflip triple tailwhip to barspin downside triple tailwhip in his final run. He had never tried the trick in his life (and may never again). Foster splits his time between traveling with Nitro Circus, riding big contests and filming first-time tricks on custom ramps. He also enjoys riding motocross, freestyle motocross and driving his cars. After his X Games win, he splurged on a 2017 Ford Raptor, a 450-hp. truck whose base model price is $50,000.
