Australian rider Jackson "Jacko" Strong won his second Moto X Best Trick gold medal on Friday with the "Jack," a variation of the Special Flip body varial backflip invented by BMX rider "Special" Greg Powell, Strong's Nitro Circus Live tour mate.
Strong's front race plate was emblazoned with the name "Stono," a tribute to rider Luke "Stono" Stojanovic, who was seriously injured last week at Strong's training compound in Lockhart, Australia and is still in a coma.
The annual duel between Ronnie Renner and Matt Buyten hit a new high during the Sony Moto X Step Up event Friday night -- literally. The longtime rivals shattered the X Games record for height cleared on their dirtbikes, with Renner ultimately eclipsing a bar set 47 feet off the Staples Center dirt to win his third gold medal and unseat two-time defending champion Buyten.
