Chad Kagy didn't just deliver his dream run for BMX Big Air in Barcelona, he also introduced a new trick to the MegaRamp during BMX Big Air. That trick, the cliffhanger backflip, is moto-inspired and insane to witness. Kagy didn't medal in the event, but he certainly scared the crowd with his new backflip variation, which involves him being almost completely detached from the bike.
