“Monster” Mike Schultz enjoys summer. He’s really enjoying this summer.
Schultz won the gold medal in early August at the Adaptive Moto-X event at the ESPN Summer X-Games in Los Angeles.
Winning gold never gets old to Schultz who knew he had his work cut out for him at the ESPN games.
“I knew I would have some stiff competition so I built a practice track at home.”
Before the competition in practice at the event “a couple of the other guys looked strong,” Schultz said. “I knew I needed a good start and at the first corner I was in second place.”
