The Nitro World Games took action sports competition to the next level. Nowhere was this more evident than with the BMX Best Tricks competition. The spirit of the Nitro Circus live show was on full display as the competing riders — all Nitro Circus athletes — sent tricks never seen before in BMX competition. Incredibly, six of the eight riders landed triple backflips. Check out five of our favorite photos from the big event:
