Wow! That’s all we can say. Respect Katie Ormerod. The title says it all. It was simply put, a trick which people doubted a female would ever be able to complete due to genetic differences with their male counterparts. They were wrong.
And we’re so glad.
This my friends is history in the making.
First, it has NEVER been done before (at least not on camera).
Secondly, “experts” said it could not be done by a female (way to show those douchebags wrong)!
Thirdly, she’s only 16!
Finally, it just kicks arse.
If you are not entirely sure of what the trick actually entails, it is three full spins (1080) with added flippage (the “corked” bit) just to make it crazy difficult.
For now, watch in awe and enjoy history being made by a young girl with one heck of a future in the sport. Here’s to raising the bar and setting new standards. Damn I wish I were 10% this good at 16!
If you are a Mountain Biking fan (and we know there are plenty of you out there), then you will love this video from the final days of the MTB season at Thredbo Resort in Australia.
As the ski season winds down in the northern hemisphere (except for western Canada – see the Snow Report TV facebook page for awesome pics), those in Australia, NZ and South America are all just getting excited by the first snow of the season. Well… almost everyone.
Those with the bikes who like going down hill fast are strangling every last minute out of the season even if it means riding some of the trails already lightly covered in snow.
For us, I doubt you’ll find this kind of speed on a snow covered and possibly icy trail, so to watch the experts have a crack is simply awesome.
Nice work Tim Windshuttle on the Vimeo upload! Keep them rolling.
