When Garrett Reynolds gets on a BMX bike at the X Games, one thing seems to be for sure: He will win.

Reynolds claimed his fourth BMX Freestyle Street gold Sunday. Since it's only the fourth running of BMX Freestyle Street, he has claimed every gold medal since its beginning in 2008.

Reynolds was the only rider of the day to break 45 points, with a 47 in a qualifying run and two 46s in the finals. He bypassed a complete third run since he already had clinched the gold medal, and simply gave the fans a few thrills before accepting congratulations from his competitors.

For the second consecutive year, San Diegan Dennis Enarson finished second to Reynolds. Along with his silver medal in the BMX Freestyle Park competition Saturday, Enarson matched his haul from last year. Enarson’s total of 85 points in the final edged out Huntington Beach native Dakota Roche’s 84.
