The front flip has now been landed by a handful of riders, but Australia's Jackson 'Jacko' Strong is looking to take it beyond an X Games Best Trick spectacle. With his strong background in FMX, Jacko wants to not only stomp the front flip in Best Trick at XG16, but he wants to eventually add the trick to his standard FMX repertoire.
Jacko is currently the first alternate for Best Trick, but his chances to ride the big show are looking good. But can a front flip beat out a double backflip? That's yet to be seen, but you can guarantee you'll be seeing both getting thrown down come show time. What a year it will be!
