    yeah i saw that too, he made it look easy, but no way i'd ever try it... in the interview afterwards he mentioned something about trying a double back flip in the finals...
    that should be absolutely sick

    Yup, I was watching it with my 2 year old. He cracked me up when we saw it and he said " BIG AIR, DADDY!"


    That was UNBELIEVABLE!

    He didn't do a double backflip. What he did last night in the finals was he pulled the backflip off of the kicker ramp, landed it, the hit the next dirt jump and pulled it again. The second one was over an 85 foot jump. It was insane!!!!

    I watched it sunday. Some of those guys were off the hook! I could not believe the backflips and especially how easy everything looked. I think i can do that stuff, it looks pretty tame. HAHA
