The judges have convened and the fan votes are tallied. X Games Real Street 2011 is a wrap. The X Games gold medal goes to Eugene, Ore.'s Silas Baxter-Neal who came through with an amazing video part just a few months after grabbing the last part in Habitat skateboards' video, "Origin." Earlier this month, Baxter-Neal told ESPN if he won the first place prize he'd spend it on his son's college fund. "I'll probably put my kid through college," said Baxter-Neal. "I have a five-month-old son so I'll just start a college fund for him."
Now Baxter-Neal can tuck $50,000 away for his son. Well done, sir.
The fan favorite vote, which garnered over 100,000 votes in the last few weeks, in the end went to Wareham, Massachusetts' Brandon Westgate. Westgate, pro for Zoo York skateboards and Emerica footwear takes home $10,000 for his efforts.
