We just ran into the up-and-coming freestyle rider,Ronnie Renner, at our favorite Mexican restaurant, Miguels in Corona, California.
When he finally caught his breath, he was ranting and raving about Mike Metzger pulling the backflip! It took place in the backyard of Metzger’s house in Quail Valley, California off of a wooden freestyle ramp. Ronnie told us that he pulled it three out of five times, landing smoothly on dirt and clearing a 47-foot gap in the process!
Much to the chagrin of other publications, we at TWMX are stoked for Metz.
We will get photos up on our site, as soon as they are made available.
Now that the bar has been raised, we can’t wait for the X games!
