4. Danny Davis
After this year’s X Games this was the trick on everyone’s lips: Danny Davis‘ switch method. Boosting off your heel edge is hard enough in the pipe, doing it switch and holding a tweak 36ft off of the flat is another thing all together. Many of the other riders that night stated they’d rather be doing double corks than one of those.
What made this even better was what it meant for the style brigade this year, Danny grabbed the win – unusually for the usual spin-to-win criteria of the X Games – and as the riders went into Sochi style was right on the agenda, heralding in the era of Sage.
