James Stewart gave everything he had to claim his first X Games competition medal, even the shirt off his back – literally. Stewart not only lost the gold medal for Best Whip, but a little wager as well which saw the Yamaha rider cough up his jersey for the defending champion and repeat winner, Todd Potter.

Scoring was provided by the fans with an American Idol-esque text-in voting system. Potter claimed a vast majority with 43% of the votes followed by Stewart with 20%.

"It's always a fun competition," said Potter in an interview with EXPN. "But you don't know if it's popularity or if it's truly talent. Either way, it's fun." 

Ricky Carmichael picked up a bronze with 17% of the votes to go along with his co-gold medal in the Step Up competition later in the evening.

I agree. I'm not a big fan of the fan voting system. That works fine for crappy talent contests, but this is sporting competition. Let's use real judges.
