In the 2002 X-Games he won the Freestyle and Big Air events and got second place in Step Up, earning him an estimated $100,000 in three days. In 2003 he also got first place in Big Air.

YouTube Tuesday: 4 Wheel Motorcycle

From Across The Pond

KTM builds the cross bow hardcore car. Audi supplies the heart and KTM surrounds it with orange carbon fiber. It’s a European-spec machine that is coming to the US in 2009.
