Jarod Vanderkooi (Van-Der-Coy) was in the middle of his AMA Pro Flat Track premier class rookie season in 2015 when he was plucked from the alternate list to make his X Games debut. He finished 16th but went on to earn AMA Rookie of the Year honors for finishing 12th overall on the Flat Track series. Vanderkooi uses a lot of body English in his riding, throwing his weight forward so that it gives the front end more traction to steer better. He also moves side to side and grips with his legs, and says it came naturally.
