At X Games Minneapolis 2017, McNeil is competing in three events -- Best Whip, Step Up, QuarterPipe High Air -- and is a favorite for gold in all three. He won the inaugural FMX High Rollers QuarterPipe High Air event in Las Vegas in Oct. 2016. At X Games Minneapolis 2017, McNeil took Step Up gold. In practice, McNeil was routinely going over the towers. He was perfect in Minneapolis, clearing all six heights in his first attempt. 44 feet is the second highest height cleared in a gold medal performance behind Ronnie Renner, who cleared 47-feet at XG LA 2012.
