Matt Ladley moved from the mild mountains of the Midwest to the rugged terrain of Colorado when he was 11. He eventually became a regular fixture on the contest scene, and now has developed into a podium threat.
Ladley’s frontside 1260 tailgrab has helped propel him to back-to-back X Games medals — gold in 2016 and silver in 2017. He also scored a victory at a U.S. Grand Prix event in 2016.
In his Dew Tour career, Ladley has finished on the podium twice, but he has not done so since 2012.
