So the three pros head up to nearby Orlando where they go shopping, hit on girls, go to clubs, hit on girls, go golfing, and hit on girls. Todd wishes James would break out of his shell, drink more, stay out late, and just throw caution to the wind.

But his parents and handlers are worried he could get hurt and jeopardize his career. After some confusion over his racing gear is fixed, James enters the media frenzy of the X-Games, where he barely has time to focus with all of the interviews, photo shoots, and press following his every move. But he does the freestyle event “Best Whip” and comes in second to Todd Potter, who achieved the gold. Todd spares no modesty in rubbing it in James’ face.
