WATCH: Moto-X rider's premature celebration ends in defeat, tears

By Evan Hilbert |

Meghan Rutledge had the Moto-X gold at the X-Games wrapped up. All the 18-year old Aussie needed to do was finish the race.

So as she soared through the air on her final jump, she gave the crowd a winning thumbs up, but that's where it all went wrong.

Instead, Vicki Golden won her third consecutive gold, and Rutledge was reduced to tears.
