That was madness.

Pure roadie here, but much respect.

Girl pants everywhere!

Throwing the bike completely negates the awesomeness of his run. I certainly don’t understand that act of idiocy. No respect.

Skinny jeans, girls jeans in BMX died in 2007

That was a cool trick indeed. Bike throwing seems to be a common practice upon completion of a difficult move. Wouldn’t it be cool if XC guys started chucking their bikes after winning a WC! ;-/

Well said @Aaron

throwing a bike in bmx is equivalent to a perfect post up on the road. glory.

BJ – call them whatever you want. But they’re still girl pants.

@aaron

you obviously don’t ride bmx, which means you have not had the feeling of landing an trick that you’ve tried millions of times. i ride bmx, road, xc, cyclocross…..only bmx has given me that exact feeling. for me at least.

@dgaddis

Shorts don’t work in BMX, do you wear baggy jeans while on you’re on your road or mountain bike? At least we don’t shave our legs…

I almost pulled that off two weeks ago on my road bike…
Anyway, I love big, nasty tricks like that.

Double tailwhip to 720 is grossly inaccurate, that would imply that he did 3 full rotations. Watch closely, 720 total rotation, first 360 has the two whips in it, second 360 completed after he catches the second whip (and completes the first 360). This trick is wild, but calling it something it isn’t doesn’t jive for this sort of thing.
