So far the highlights have been:

Travis Pastrana's DOUBLE backflip in FMX

Brian McRea ROLLING his RallyCross car and still picking up the silver, just a hair off of the Gold. (Pastrana also won this event. FMX and RallyCross, wow)

Anyone else super stoked on this?

He didn't land it last night. 18 tries for the 'Flying Tomato' to nail the 1080 and he flopped every time.

But, the Double Backflip... Here I was thinking that a backflip could never be done on one of those bikes before it happened. Now, here I am thinking there's no way in hell anyone could do a double backflip. Well, guess I was proven wrong.

Now, we just wait until someone has the guts to try a Triple Backflip. :P

Can't forget Kevin Robinsons double flair in bmx vert best trick. And on the topic of the double backflip, I seriously worry about what doors this opens up. Since flipping entered the sport a few years ago, the crashes have gotten, at least personally, more and more jarring. The idea of somebody falling doing a move like a cordova backflip or a cliffhanger backflip is scary to say the least. I know its all in the name of progression, but I hope that if the riders don't have the good sense to retire it amongst themselves, that an organizing body bans the double backflip. I don't think creativity should be halted, and I'm all in favor of new tricks, but when the stakes are as high as they are with that trick, it's too much. Watching Pastrana's mom cry as she thought about her son attempting it said it all for me.

I watched a bit but it just didn't hook me.

Ill tell you honestly, its way easier when youve grown up Snowboarding, Skateboarding, BMXing, FMXing, and so on to get hooked. You appreciate it more. And living in Southern Cali doesnt hurt either. ^_^
