The 2017 Nitro World Games went off this weekend at Rice-Eccles Stadium in SLC with the stars of each discipline – FMX Best Trick and FMX – pulling off tricks that have only imaginable in video games, until now. Harry Bink’s Rock Solid Front Flip, Levi Sherwood’s Nac-Nac Double Backflip and Clinton Moore’s body varial were just a few of the insane tricks that went down, but in order for these riders to pull off these unthinkable stunts alterations must first be made to their machines. Much like Supercross and motocross racing, FMX calls for certain suspension settings and horsepower output, as well as modifications to the frame and body that will enable the rider to hold on to the bike while doing each trick. Check out some of the custom bike modifications from the 2017 NWG.
