Pair land historic trick on Nitro Circus tour
Just a few weeks after dueling for X Games gold, Taka Higashino and Adam Jones teamed up for a milestone trick last month in Macau during the Nitro Circus Live tour.
Higashino, who edged Jones for gold in Moto X Freestyle at X Games Los Angeles 2013, combined with Jones for side-by-side double grab backflips at The Venetian Macau's Cotai Arena. Check out the above video to see for yourself.
"We have an insane group of athletes who push each other to new extremes every single show and to have the two best FMX riders in the world perform the world's first side-by-side double grab backflips in a Nitro show was really special," Nitro Circus Live promoter Mike Porra said in a news release.
After its stop in Asia, Nitro Circus Live is taking a break before beginning a 17-show European tour Nov. 3 in Moscow.
Then the action sports and stunt extravaganza launches its first North American tour Jan. 3 in Hamilton, Ontario.
