At the Red Bull Elevation BMX finals in Whistler, BMX history was made when 19-year-old James Foster of Redlands, CA landed the first ever Triple Tail Whip in competition. Although the groundbreaking trick blew the judges minds and the crowd exploded with cheers, it was only enough to propel the young prodigy to a 5th place finish overall. Not to be left in the dirt Foster blew the doors off when he landed the second ever Triple Tail Whip to win the best trick event after the final, proving that he will be around showing how its done for years to come.

The prize money (which was cold hard cash delivered in steel briefcases by Red bull's own helicopter) went to Luke Parslow in 3rd place who threw down huge technical tricks like his Superman Tailwhip Backflip in the best trick show and big booster frontflips off the final booter in the comp. Second place went to Corey Bohan with huge style and big tech tricks off every one of the 14 hits. Although it was a strong field, no one could match veteran rider Ryan Nyquist's mad skills. Nyquist let loose with multiple 360s in both directions, a 720 off the big gap in front of the judges tower and a handful of backflip variations that only veteran can dig out of his bag of tricks.

The lone Canadian in the finals was Pro Moto champ Dusty Klatt who traded in his 125cc for a BMX to throw down in a style that was all his own and showed the obvious moto influence. Klatt was by far the biggest booster, getting massive air off all the jumps, particularly the big gap in front of the judges. Props to Campbell River for turning out such a talented crossover athlete!

If the crowd was any indication of the event's success then we can look forward to a sequel to this event next year. Don't miss it!
