Rune signs for a fan.
Rune about to drop in for his Vert run.
Rune Glifberg has been busy all weekend. First skating in the Vert contest at X Games 11. Despite dealing with some bruised ribs from the Boom Boom Huck Jam tour and not feeling his best, he had some clean runs and landed a sick switch backside kickflip (no grab) and placed ninth.
Rune and Omar Hassan about to get escorted back to the roll in.
Rune tried his hand at the Mega Ramp on Saturday morning. Check the photo of him getting escorted back to the ramp's elevator in the mini Cadillac.
They got Rune's back!
Rune skated well during Best Trick and landed backside nosegrinds on the bench, kickflip back lips, a ridiculous disaster on the six-foot vert extention, and, if that wasn't enough, he started trying frontside heelflip to disaster on the same extention. Even thought he didn't land it, just seeing him get into it a few times was insane enough--believe me.
Backside nosegrind during Best Trick
So congrats to Rune on repping etnies to the fullest, being one of the only riders to land more than one trick during Vert Best Trick and for just ripping all weekend in general.
Somehow, someway, Pauly shore was at the X Games and talking to Christian Hosoi.
That's right, this cute young lady is here to let you know that eating tacos is not a crime.
