Look Out X-Gamers...

Stole this from Transworld. By the way, to play it, just double-click on the frame, dummy.

I'm going to go ahead and throw $10 billion on this guy not making this the first time he takes it to dirt. And with a flip like this, not making it means eating shit, so I'm about a thousand percent sure that he will be eating shit the first time he tries this. But, I guarantee that he already got a call from the X-Games people inviting him to be in Best Trick. I've said it before, but Best Trick in the X-Games is the worst thing that could have ever happened to freestyle. It encourages all these one trick wonders to think of ridiculous moves that are next to impossible to perfect, but they don't care as long as they get on TV. The fact of the matter is that the popularity behind it is similar to the NASCAR effect; half the people watching want these guys to bite it, hard. It's a sick world. Even though I'm not really sympathetic to freestyle, I have to believe that any legit freestylers think the event is retarded. It's such a Joe Show now; 100% for entertainment purposes, the WWE of motocross. Now we've got some sort of downs syndrome front flip coming in hot for summer 2011. If this guy can actually ride, then cool, but something tells me that he, like our other friends in Best Trick, have just one in the chamber and none in the clip.
