November’s best action sports moments
November saw some insane rides on both land and water – and a fair share of rising youngsters making headlines as well. Catch up with our choice moments of the month!
A FIRST FOR THE GIRLS
Austrian snowboarder and Olympic gold medallist Anna Gasser bossed a Cab Triple Cork at Stubaier Gletscher – becoming the first woman ever to nail the trick. Mark this one down for the history books.
BEST TRICKS OF CHENGDU
Jake Wallwork threw this insane trick at the FISE World Series in Chengdu. In a run that scored 90.20 points, this Frontflip Barspin Tuck No-Hander shot Jake straight onto the podium to win his first FISE World Series event!
THE YOUNGEST GRAND PRIX RACE WINNER
After winning the Red Bull Rookies Cup earlier this year, 15-year-old Turkish rider Can Öncü shocked the stands in his Moto3 debut in Valencia this month. Racing as a wildcard for Red Bull KTM Ajo, Öncü defeated champion Jorge Martin by 4 seconds and became the youngest rider to ever win a grand prix race.
SURFER TAKES ON MONSTEROUS WAVE
Kai Lenny returned to his home waves to compete in the Jaws Challenge in Peahi, Maui. The big waves contest did not disappoint – Kai Lenny went full force at this monster and left the face with a 20-foot air drop!
8-YEAR-OLD SHREDS BMX
Harry Schofield from the UK absolutely kills these BMX lines – and he’s only 8-years-old! Worth jotting that name down, because we’re sure we’re going to see a lot more of this kid.
