Opinion: Worlds First Scorpion Double Backflip – Maybe?!

Did Ethen Roberts just pull off the worlds first scorpion Backflip? nitro circus

Did Ethen Roberts just pull off the worlds first scorpion Backflip?

Well this interesting?!?! Apparently you can claim you did a trick first even if you don’t land it. This is actually pretty weak. My wife was looking over my shoulder when I told her what I was about to play and even she said WTF he didn’t land it. I love Nitro Circus and loved seeing it live. But you CANNOT call something landed or a worlds first when you obviously crash on the landing. This is what happens when big business takes over anything in action sports. It’s no longer about staying true to the sport but about hype and stacking dollar bills. Not so cool Travis. So does this mean at the  world Nitro Circus games people will be able to win without landing tricks?!?! In that case sign me up!!! Or will the rule only apply to Nitro Circus riders? Sorry to do this because I think Nitro Circus is awesome but I have to call bullshit when I see bullshit. And well this is bullshit. So who will really land the worlds first scorpion/tsunami double backflip? Szymon Godziek I am talking to you…haha…

In case you missed it that blue blob is him after he crashed. nitro circus

In case you missed it that blue blob is Ethen after he crashed.
