GoPro Is Gold at Moto-X in Brazil

GoPro HERO3 cameras captured the gold medal runs of nearly every mens Moto-X discipline featured in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil, where the X Games made its third stop of its global circuit.

Check out winning runs from X Games Brazil below, and see how to get it done from the points-of-view of Taddy Blazusiak, Taka Higashino, Lance Coury, and Bryce Hudson.


Taka Higashino – Freestyle

Taka captured his Gold medal in Moto-X Freestyle with a host of technical backflip combinations, including a Cordova Flip, his signature Rock Solid flip, and even a Barhop seatgrab flip. See the entire run below.

Bryce Hudson – Step Up

Bryce Hudson stretched over a 31′ foot bar to win his first Gold medal, just a foot higher than Ronnie Renner.

Lance Coury – Speed & Style

A holeshot, steady speed in the whoops, and backflip combos helped Lance Coury seal the deal in Moto-X Speed & Style.

Taddy Blazusiak – Enduro X

After a fourth-place start in the Enduro X final, Taddy quickly snuck into the lead. From there, it was consistent laps and minimal mistakes that propelled the off-road star to the top step of the podium.



Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3

"Despite a lot of newcomers in the field, GoPro is still the leader in adventure cameras. The new Hero3 Black manages to pack an f/2.8 wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sensor, and the power to shoot 30 still frames per second into a camera body that’s smaller than a bar of soap" – Outside Magazine "Gear of the Year" 2013
