The Medal Mulisha at Winter XMonday, January 30, 2006 | 11:27 AM
After the initial field was melted down to five riders, it all came down to a sudden-death, man-against-man duel between SoBe Gold/No Fear/Metal Mulisha rider Jeremy Stenberg of California and upstart Mat Rebeaud of Switzerland. Having scored an amazing 93.01 via a no-handed backflip with his arms thrown way above his upside-down head (Stenberg had to hook his foot under a foot peg to stay on the bike), Twitch finished with a sidesaddle landing. Rebeaud, who stunned not only the Aspen crowd, but the fraternity of U.S.-based FMX riders as well by leading the way into the final with a first-place score of 92.00, was ready to go for broke in the medal round. However, a Saran Wrap backflip-to-candy bar-to-one-hander-lander scored at 92.40. It was not enough to top Stenberg.
Final Result: X Games 10 Moto X Big Trick:
1.) Jeremy Stenberg 93.01
2.) Mat Rebeaud 92.40
3.) Ronnie Faisst 90.60
4.) Nate Adams 90.40
