Snowmobiler Colten Moore took home an X Games gold medal during a freestyle competition on Thursday and dedicated the emotional podium to his older brother, Caleb, who died from injuries sustained in last year’s competition. Joe Parsons and Heath Frisby took silver and bronze, respectively.

“This is the greatest moment ever, to be able to come back and ride for my brother,” Moore said. “And not just for him, but with him, because I know he was out here with me all night. To be able to come out here and get gold is unbelievable. I just give it all to him. I know he was the one helping me do everything I was doing. … It’s what me and Caleb grew up doing, pushing each other to go for it. I just knew that he’d be riding with me.”

Winter X Games runs through Jan. 26 in at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colo.
