About Vince

Vince Byron picked up his 7th XG medal at X Games Austin 2015, and it was the big one he'd been after all along: BMX Vert gold. Byron's victory brought an end to Jamie Bestwick's record-setting streak of 9 consecutive wins in Vert. Byron landed an X Games-first 540 flair in his run for emphasis. The 26-year-old Aussie is also a threat in BMX Big Air, where he owns 3 silver medals and is prioritizing earning gold at Austin 2016.
