Here are the highlights for the Teva Best Trick Showdown that took place today (Thursday, August 15, 2013). No one was prepared when California’s Mike Montgomery threw down the first backflip bar-hop to tailwhip ever landed on a bike; a trick that netted Montgomery the win and a $4,000 paycheck.
France’s Yannick Granieri came in second with a backflip double tailwhip, which also happens to be the same trick he threw to win the Teva Best Trick at Crankworx Les 2 Alpes in July. Newcomer Nicholi Rogatkin, who is coming in hot after winning the Pro Dirt category at the BMX Worlds 2013 in Germany, took third place with a lawn dart frontflip which he threw right out of the gate on his very first run.
