Jackson 'Jacko" Strong, the fearless Aussie, is a crowd favorite due to his 'go-for-it' style. In 2011, he became the first to land a frontflip at XG Best Trick, and led an Aussie sweep of the podium. He took gold again in 2012 with "The Jack", a body varial where his legs flip over his head and back into the bike. In 2013, he joined the Freestyle roster at Foz and threw the frontflip on the very first ramp hit. Unfortunately, however, he crashed soon after attempting a backflip and broke his right tibia. Jack is back again in 2015 -- this time for QuarterPipe -- where he is promising a "first-ever" trick in the new discipline.
- Strong is a two-time X Games gold medalist in MTX Best Trick and was the first rider to land a frontflip and the "Jack" body varial in an X Games competition. He was also the first to land a frontflip in a Freestyle run at X Games in Foz but broke his right tibia moments later.
