The Metal Mulisha took 2 out of 3 spots on the podium in X Games 17 Best Trick! As the General says, the real men are in the Best Trick event. Jacko Strong and Cam Sinclair are the men among men, and X Games Medalists!
Congrats to Jacko on stomping the front flip and bringing home the X Games Gold! Proud of you buddy!
Also congrats to Cam on the double flip nac…that’s right, Cam just brought double backflip combos to the table! You know your trick is crazy when you cant even do it in the new Mulisha video game haha!
Taka Higashino kinda got jipped. Not ’cause judging sucked, because I would score a front flip a couple double backflips at the top, too. But because he did one of the sickest, most technical tricks ever, and I’m not sure everyone appreciated how bad ass it really was because of all the hype around the other tricks. Taka pulled a 1 handed seat grab backflip…think about it. Good job Taka son!
Check out the X Games 17 Best Trick photo gallery for sequences of Jacko and Cam’s tricks, and of course the video is below. X Games 17 day 1 is over…1 gold, 2 silver, 1 bronze…not a bad start!
