Axell Hodges Out for XGames
We were stoked to see what Axell could accomplish at XGames this year after his second place finish in QP Big Air at the Monster Energy Cup. Axell Hodges was hoping to go for gold in the 2017 XGames Best Whip, Quarter Pipe Big Air and Step Up contest, but those hopes have dissipated into thin air.
During a practice sesh at Pala Raceway, Axell was able to figure out a new technique that allowed him to up the ante for the Step-Up contest. Unfortunately, he took a pretty nasty digger and broke his wrist. Axell went under the knife to get a plate put in and is expected to make a quick recovery. We are bummed he wont be competing at XGames, but we are stoked to hear that he is okay! Show him some love on Instagram @axellhodges.
