Tacos are the secret to Moto X success
In today’s Moto X Super X Men’s Final, Josh Hansen came away with the gold, even riding on a buddy’s practice bike.
Maybe the key to his success is how he stays energized. Sitting in front of him in the press conference was a hat that read “Chronic Taco.”
“Chronic Taco is my buddy’s company. He runs taco shops all throughout the coast. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s his last name. It’s good food. It’s better than Wahoo’s. So eat it. Gives you energy,” Hansen said.
Hansen had so much energy that as he crossed the finish line, he whipped his bike hard to the side, as if he was in the Moto X Best Whip competition. He didn’t know what was going to happen, but he tried it anyway, figuring that it was the end of the day and it didn’t matter if he crashed.
“I was scared I was going to maybe over-jump it and maybe blow my face apart. But it worked out great,” he said.
Bronze medalist Kevin Windham attributed his loss of the lead to the fact that he’s “been on the couch a lot, taking the summer off," and that he "didn’t really feel like himself today."
Maybe he just needed a taco.
