“I was going to be pumped whether I took first or last place, it was just my goal to do a front flip at X Games.” Aussie Jackson Strong made the history books and it was only his second X Games appearance.
“I was going to be pumped whether I took first or last place, it was just my goal to do a front flip at X Games,” Strong said. “I think everyone saw how deep I had to dig. I had to hang on tight for that landing for sure. I worked super hard for X Games because I’ve always wanted a gold medal and this is the best feeling in the world.”
Strong led the way for an Australian sweep of the Moto X Best Trick podium with Cameron Sinclair taking X Games silver with a sweetly executed knack-knack double backflip. The bronze medal went to Josh Sheehan who also landed a double backflip.
