Bruce has a fourth-place finish in the X Games BMX Dirt competition in 2017, and an eighth-place finish in the BMX Park Best Trick contest that same year.

Bruce did manage to bring home the bronze medal in BMX freestyle at the 2019 BMX World Championships, which put him on the path to Olympic qualification.

While he hasn’t been able to bring home an X-Games medal yet, Bruce would have no qualms over his prior performance if he can put on an Olympic medal later this month in Japan.

Those looking to bet on Olympic BMX can back Bruce at any of the major online sportsbooks when the Olympic Games begin on July 27. The Freestyle BMX competition will take place on July 31 and August 1.
