For his 5th invitation to the X Games, Julien Vanstippen was expected as one of the title candidates in Best Whip and a strong competitor in Best Trick on his new 450 YZF Yamaha Hostettler.

Beste Whip:
On June 28, 2024, at the Ventura Fairground, in California, Julien Vanstippen finally claimed a silver medal in the Best Whip Contest after a close final score. This result gives Julien his 4th medal in 5 X-Games appearances.

Best trick:
The next day, on June 29, 2024, Julien was at the start of the Best Trick competition and hit an impressive Double backflip that took him to 4th place, improving his 5th position from the 2022 edition.

Julien was also the only rider to compete in 2 disciplines, once again proving his versatility and skills.

Julien Vanstippen: "Despite the lack of training on the bike due to the rain in Belgium, the overall results from this weekend here in Ventura were above my expectations and I don't regret the switch to the Hostettler Yamaha. I'm so happy now because I've proven my reliability when it comes to competitions and I can't wait for the rest of the season to show that I still have new tricks up my sleeve!"
