The BMX riders at last weekend's X Games in Los Angeles put on quite a show. And as you'll see in the highlights footage above, it was Red Bull's own Garret Reynolds who was the star of the show.

Garret was Red Bull's best performer in the BMX street competition, turning on the style in his final run on Friday to pip X Games rookie Chad Kerley to gold and take his fifth straight victory.

Afterwards, he had this to say: "It isn't about being competitive, it’s about doing what you love, doing it for the people more than anything, making BMX look good."

In the BMX Superpark event, Canada's Drew Bezanson finished fifth in a competition that was dominated by Scotty Cranmer, who took his third X Games gold.

Venezuela's Daniel Dhers finished 10th but was happy enough with how things went: "To win you've pretty much got to give everything you've got; the course is really complicated. It takes skill, imagination and a lot of luck."

A dramatic X Games Big Air Contest also saw its fair share of thrills and spills, with Red Bull-backed daredevil Kevin Robinson taking a respectable third. "I tried everything I wanted to try, I'm happy," he said afterwards.

Watch the footage above and relive the action.
