Jacko Strong wins Moto X Best Trick, landing the first-ever competition front flip. Travis Pastrana, expected to be one of the highlights of the event, crashed two times and had left the place. Cam Sinclair placed second with a double backflip with nac-nac variations on the second flip. Double backflip variations are practically unheard of in FMX competition. And third was Josh Sheehan.
Raven Tershy won the Skateboard Park finals on opening night of X Games 17, beating out 2010 champ Pedro Barros and newcomer Ben Hatchell in a tight fight for the podium. Barros was throwing down 540s in every run, but didn’t succeeded into defending his X Games 16 gold.
