A freestyle motocross innovator, "Jacko" is a crowd favorite for his fearless go-for-it style. The Australian led an Aussie sweep of the podium at X Games Moto X Best Trick in 2011 when landed the first frontflip in competition. The following year he brought a new body varial, "The Jack", and won gold again. His forays into Freestyle have not been as successful and he even gave Snowmobile Best Trick a shot in 2013. In 2016 Strong is back for his 7th appearance but first in three years. Look for his newest trick, the "Double Drop", (a drifting double backflip) which he hopes to land in QuarterPipe.
