At X Games Foz, Zack Warden toyed with the backflip bike flip to late tailwhip over the gap during BMX Big Air. He never landed it in Brazil, but arrived in Barcelona with the trick on lock, landing it early in the finals, followed by a perfect triple tailwhip air on the MegaRamp quarterpipe. For the diehard BMX fan, it was the run of the competition, and it earned Warden his second gold medal of the year.
