Jackson Jacko Strong took home the 2011 X Games 17 Best Trick Gold Medal last year for pulling off the first ever front flip in X Games history. Jacko is ready to set another record, but this time against Kyle Loza in the Crusty Demons Cup at the 2012 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix.
“The Crusty Demons Cup is a fantastic initiative, it is great to see the sport evolving, here in Australia. To be showcasing FMX at the Australian Grand Prix is a huge opportunity and personally I am really looking forward at going head-to-head with Kyle Loza in Best Trick.” – Jackson Strong
Jacko will be competing and be judged on, Best Trick, Best Whip and Best Combo with a winner take all, $50,000 prize pool along with the champion title of the Crusty Demons Cup! Jacko is currently training every day for this event while raising the bar, as he plans to show the world a never before seen trick this weekend!
“I’m getting ready to head to the Crusty Cup tomorrow and I’m starting to get chills running down my spine thinking about what the ‘Best trick’ category is going to hold. I have a brand new trick that I am going to unveil which I landed to dirt yesterday. No one has ever done this trick before. I wanted to bring something new to the table so stay tuned – the ‘Bullet Proof Tiger’ will be out of the bag soon.” – Jackson Strong
Best of luck to you Jacko, and we cannot wait to see you take home that $50 grand!
