Dozens of Firsts at the Inaugural Nitro World Games

By Charley Daniels | July 16, 2016

The greatest action sports competition ever went down Saturday night, as the inaugural Nitro World Games came to Salt Lake City and left a sea of broken records, stunned fans, and crazy moments in its wake. The complete list of competitors and winners is below.

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. And Colton Walker rode away with a win in BMX Triple Hit, despite being the youngest rider in that event.
