More than 100 FMX, BMX, skate, scooter and inline athletes flocked to Salt Lake City to compete in Nitro Circus’ bold reinvention of the action sports competition co-founded by Pastrana and Nitro Circus CEO and Creative Director Mike Porra.

Best FMX Trick on Practice day:

More than 25,000 fans were in attendance at Rice-Eccles Stadium where they witnessed four hours of non-stop thrills and surprises never before seen in an action sports competition.

An all-star lineup featuring Olympic snowboarder Todd Richards, skate legend Tony Hawk and Pastrana co-hosted the NBC primetime television broadcast in the U.S.

With something like 32 World Firsts, it’s going to take some time to analyze every angle. But highlights of the night include an insane FMX double frontflip by Gregg Duffy, who won the FMX Best Trick competition.

Josh Sheehan took home trophies in both FMX events, with a third in Best Trick and a second in FMX.

The craziest event of the night might have been BMX Best Tricks, which saw six of eight athletes land triple backflips and a huge win for Ryan Williams, who took a commanding lead early on and kept it easily, sticking huge tricks including a nothing front bikeflip and a 1080 frontflip.
