Monster Energy Moto X Best Trick: FULL BROADCAST | X Games Norway 2019Jun 11, 2021
welcome to Oslo Norway to all the x-
2019here inside the Telenor stadium this is the
moto, Mike, let's talk about In some of these stories, the Aussies have been extremely dominant when it comes to
moto, ask Moto , a strong Rob Adelberg, Joshi, and you know they've done it. everyone has been very good, I think they must also be the favorites for this event, Joshy, he has that double backflip and double backflip combo and an arsenal of
tricks, but let's talk about the career that Rob Adelberg had in the last two years, yeah , Rob.
He's been riding amazing, he's gotten a lot better at his game, you know, doing the front flip down with Jack is strong and he just does all kinds of good things with the right side up. Drake Barrios good
tricks, whatever, Jackson strong has been the
bestand most successful. trick competitor in X Games history, he has seven perfect medals in seven starts, he has five talking about competition results, let's talk about the most recent results here in the history of the best tricks in the a blow that came out of that or exonerated David Ronaldo or this strong Jackson returning to the X Games Shanghai this was June of this year yes, this year flying directly through Shanghai feels like it was only a couple of months ago and Jaco took the victory there and then David Ronaldo comes out and follows everyone.
Ok with a whole new ride with a body bury in the middle of a backflip that was probably the craziest thing I've ever seen on a dirt bike, you know, come out with a whole new trick, that's the best trick What are the X Games? It's all about, that's how it works in the best Moto X trick. The best Monster Energy moto It's the best of your two attempts. counting the maximum points you can get per attempt is 100 points the question is what does it take to get a win here today David Ronaldo isn't in the mix here so we won't be seeing that body variation backflip combo anyway May you have Rob Adelberg. from Jackson strong, talking about those two guys again, they have front flips, they also have front flip combos, Mike, yeah, the front flip combos are going to be hard to beat.
I mean, we've seen it for the last year, but I would do it. Don't count out the guys Luke Ackerman Josh Sheehan, you know, you never know what they're going to bring you, you know, Luke is a new guy here, he really wants to say his name, so we start here in the round at number one. I'm going to take a look at a freestyle motocross veteran here, from Barcelona, Spain, this is Edgar Tour Terrace aka et X Games Norway
2019, it will surpass the ninth appearance of him. He has a gold medal for best whip in Barcelona in 2013, yes, here is one of the real ones. pioneers of freestyle motocross and right there I mean the 39 year old guys, he just gave a big kiss of death, maybe you know he's not really known for his best tricks, people are more of a beat up guy, but like I said he's been around this since day one it's great to see him even taller yeah the elder statesman of the group here at 39 years old he just feels it and that's a big stretch here for this Monster Energy f of X, our party of the best Moto X trick, begin, yes.
And that's not an easy trick, you know that trick, there still aren't many guys that do it and do it that well. You can see it looking through it and getting a
fullextension and a
fullleg kick, that's why we call it the Indian air. landing and smooth, I mean, everything was fine on that, but when you have front flips and double back flips here, we have to step it up a little bit more than that, freestyles get a little scary these days if you're watching these guys throw double back and forth cartwheels. tumbling combos and practice like it's nothing, yes, and like I said in giris trick, there was no easy trick by any means, but it's going to take a lot to step up and get to that medal position, so again, the best Possible score you can get is 100. so let's start with a 84 flat, so not a bad way to start this party here for the Spaniard right there, with a full house here inside the Telenor stadium, the first time we've had dirt bikes here at X Games Norway. winter and summer sports building our next competitor we will see him here in Germany this is Luke Ackerman we also miss him in Minneapolis this year he broke his right leg in August a backflip off a motorcycle in 2010 he was only 12 years old at the time You mentioned it, he also has the double backflip in his arsenal, a finishing trick, yeah, I'm super here, a huge double backflip, but I mean, he just rolled out the door when they told me to go, it was for some guys, They have a little. routine, they want to do it and they mentally prepare for it, but Luke showed at that young age that that wild guy was just trying.
I said he was the youngest to perform a backflip on a dirt bike at age 12. He was also the youngest. performing a double backflip in October 2017 when he was only 19 and going back to what you were saying before, just these guys doing double backflips, it seems so easy now in my day that it was like the biggest publicity event ever done. I'm sure the guy was going to turn around twice, but Luke, she needs these guys to make it look easy, oh yeah, back, well, it seems like it wasn't that long ago, where if you got this trick, we're guaranteed a victory with the best trick and nowadays I'm watching these guys just throw them with relative ease, I mean Joshie, and I'm surprised why that trick, especially because sometimes you see that crash and he gets up, dusts himself off and it goes on, yes, yes, it's amazing.
You can get up from a double backflip now and go ahead and do a second run, yeah these guys are crazy, it was a very smooth double flip and it got a good score, that's eighty nine point three three for Luke so he's pretty fired up with that, yes. that's a great first score Rob Adelberg should be the next pin in the mix here in the race order there, nice, no, the front foot, these guys are just these guys are starting to get too comfortable on these front jumps, you know, it's crazy, you think it was Jack, ah, dad, that was the strong one Jack's, yeah, I think maybe they just had the race. or messed up, they go, the messed up rider there, which was actually Jackson, strong, it's not hard to do, both guys are doing the same tricks and riding the kids, okay, you can see the total commitment from the ramp, great extension in the turn without hands, yes, we.
You're like it's the same level these guys got to. I think in Minneapolis in 2018 it was crazy to barely get your hands off them, now they're holding them at bay almost the entire rotation and you're seeing the dirt grip a little bit. the landing there almost hits him, but it's a file we put him in and you see him lean forward almost like a double push-up right there, but again he looks at the extension, nothing hesitant about that he hangs his hands on the bars, he holds on to him to the fullest. amount of time, yeah, pro flippers just have a total commitment to it, it's one of those things that right when you come off the ramp you just zone out and do backflips, you can speed up or slow down, it's all or nothing right off the ramp of the ramp that was actually there was supposed to go last in the corridor - that's where Rob Adelberg was supposed to be, so we'll see if we get robbed or robbed, so that's what we're here for for a real clarification, to get everything clean , thanks five flats right there for Jackie, like I said before, in his seven best trick starts in FMX, he has seven metals, so he holds that first place right now with a Clinton 95 flat and five time bronze medalist in the x-
gamesin three motox disciplines, both being quarterpipe. best trick and freestyle for the last guy to leave and it was just a one-time kind of trick and now these guys throw it all away right away.
It's good to see Clinton back in the mix, we ended up losing him and He also had a big accident there, so it's definitely good to see Clinton getting comfortable with his own team. here in Norway, yeah, looks solid, great first trick, I think that trick has been around for a while, but I think it gets overlooked, there aren't many guys that do the vault burial, a lot of them go to Cali Rolls, which is where you take off, hold the seat, spin around the seat, but you're hanging completely off the side of that bike spinning around and I think you deserve a little more credit for that, which was good enough to put you in third place right now, is looking for the podium. an 88 0.33 with that body barrier again this is round one of two it's the best of your two run the score here at Monster Energy moto Klotz medal in Minneapolis earlier this month on Moto she definitely rocks the thing and is such a solid guy.
He's been very consistent over the last five, six, seven years of freestyle motocross. He has landed a triple backflip. He'll invite her to find out sometime, so I'm sure the double doesn't feel any way. They're not holding anything back, it doesn't matter if it's Minneapolis, Norway, China, wherever we are, these guys are going for it, they want those medals, I mean the double jump was perfect, kept his hands off the entire rotation. Yeah, great, look, my tree lifts its hands even though it does that first rotation, then the hands come up, you have to put your hands back on the bars and then pull up to that second rotation, that part of it just baffles me and I can't .
I'm not telling you how strong her knee has to be to hold that bike. I mean, he's got foot hooks and everything to keep him there, but you know the bikes are moving away from you and you're basically letting go of them, you know? like I said, the extent of that thing is how long you hold it right there, textbook, no hand bars, they stay straight, you bring it in smoothly. He is also one of three X Games athletes to take three motorcycle events in a single X Games, the other two. being Clinton Moore and Mike Metzger so the stats on him are good company to be up there with that stat yeah any habit is fun 93.3 three so that's going to take Clint more out of the top three right now for what is hard to see an attacker.
Munir one, two, three from now on we will see Rob Adelberg. We were supposed to see it earlier, but they executed Jackson strumming first. Now Rob Adelberg comes into the mix, so here's the guy who took the best motox trick with silver metal deal. Nevsky Shanghai Shanghai this year what career does Rob have, it was you. I call it a little late. I think the first time I wrote a show about them was in 2007, you know, and I think it was these last four or five years. it's really getting to set up the front turn, they're taking your hands off it again, that's why the impedance is obscene, how easily both images accentuate through you, that's true, yes, just a year ago, you barely They take their hands off or just.
His first first front flip, now, look at the practice, these guys throw somersaults like the back flips, but their hands come out much longer. Everything is progressing with this layup, so what will the score come down to here between him and Jackson? Jackson scored a flat 95 right there. I mean, basically, this will be it. I mean, the judges are looking for the manushya that signals a breakdown and they are looking for the slightest error here to try to differentiate between the two, yes, the judges. They had a lot of work for Drake McElroy and his team there, they are all riders, they know what they are looking at, there were two different styles there, if people notice that Rob's hands were something like we call it suicide, where they are behind them, where Jack The shots were kind in front of them, I mean, maybe that's something that the judges can separate to separate these scores, so that you have to score 90 in the top three and then it'sinterview with Jackson Strong Jacko, how can you stay so consistent in a sport that has so much risk? progression, you are now 8 out of 8 in this event.
I think it's all just about hot work training, but at the end of the day, it can be anyone's game here, everyone, it's just about who's on the day and I think I'm just a little lucky, I got lucky sometimes, so yeah, it's a sport nolle at the end of the day it's just staying safe and if everyone comes out safe, it's a happy day. What goes through your mind when you make a front? -turn around and then take your hands off a motorcycle, is this sense, can I, can I, can I say bad words here, could I that's what's going through my mind and what's up with all these Norwegian fans?
Do you think we'll see some Norwegian drivers next? year, I think there are a lot of young, stylish kids there with a six-year-old motocross jersey on, so it's exciting for the future of the sport. Lovely country loves it here and can't wait to return, hopefully. You can also be in the snow Bach next year, now we're talking about congratulations on your six golds Jacko strong, so there you have it, Jackson strong taking home another gold medal in best Motox trick and your final Fox while We're done with this competition, Mike. Yes, what an event, front flips are a normal thing.
Double backflip, no hands, normal and I'm out of my league. I'm glad to be here, where are we going in 2020 and beyond? We will have to see something very important here at the Telenor stadium, but at the end of the day it is double backflips and forwards. kitchen flip combos on the podium here at whatever, how long do you think? The rain is going to be the reign of terror and will stay here for the front jump. I don't know, I don't see any end in sight for these guys. I mean, every year they get more comfortable with it.
That is what happens. What scares me is how they practice, like in the past you would go to the best trick events and everyone just knew Seiken from each other, I didn't want them to reveal the big trick until it was time and now. They just saw you again take a break with relative ease, yeah, yeah, these guys, like I said, are getting more comfortable with that. I think the variations will start to flow more and more as the years go by, you know, and then it will go back to What we saw in Minneapolis with David Ronaldo, I mean, that thing came out of nowhere with that backflip with variation of body and he made the first shot, so it was kind of a scary look into the future when it comes to the best trick, yes, yes, the best.
Tricks have always been the gnarliest thing in freestyle motocross and these guys are pushing it every year, like I said it's weird to me that Josh Sheehan does a no-hand double backflip and comes in third and clicks more during a Bundy Andy and let you know the 4th or 5th, and man, this sport is crazy, here's another interesting best Moto X trick from the X Games, when someone can bring something new to the with him that within two years he ended up being in a freestyle race, that trick has been included in a real freestyle race within two years, yeah, no one has seen it, it's just that these guys, yes these kids are crazy and they go further, and that's what this sport needs to keep it fresh, keep it up, so there it is.
Come on, the best Monster Energy moto X trick is in the book. We take a look at some pretty photos here before we finish. Jackson Straw leaves here with a 96 flat and takes home another gold medal. However, the day is far from over. We still have much more to come from inside the Telenor Arena for X Games Norway 2019.
