In pretty much a landslide victory Mike Montgomery has won the Pinkbike Best Trick Throwdown at Ranchstyle in Colorado with 353 votes. The event took place yesterday at the Grassroots Ranch in Colorado and was filmed by a team of videographers. The video was then posted to Pinkbike where viewers had the opportunity to vote for a winner. Mike's winning trick was a backflip barhop, something that is mostly unseen in mountain bike competition. Greg Watts placed second with 121 votes, he threw down a myriad of tricks including a flip double barspin and no handed 360 to barspin. Third place was Ben Glassen, a relatively unknown rider from Nanaimo BC. His super steezy 360 nac earned him 65 votes, while Eric Lawrenuk's decade (or 360 downside whip to some) earned him fourth place with 47 votes.

 I agree with ColRider. I thought that his bag of tricks was already ridiculous before today. It's pretty sick to think that he's pulling crazy stuff like that with the season just getting warmed up. I can't wait for Crankworx!!!! Or should I say Red Bull Joyride!

 Ben Glassen 3rd? Really guys? Apparently I'm the only one who doesn't like his "steeze" at all...but he was a nice guy when I met him a few years ago. And Montgomery's trick was awesome.

 Are you kidding me klopp? I think Ben Glassen had the most stylish trick of all at that contest with his 360 nac nac, Jamie Goldman and Mike Montgomery is in that lead to.

 tbh i'm not really a fan of can one foot landers
  • + 3
 I dig the 360 nac, cuz it's refreshing to see someone in a best trick contest not try and crowd in as many fast moving bike movements as possible before landing... sometimes it's nice to just see a good trick, and not have a seizure trying to keep up with all the movements... I find that a lot of times, while things are being crowded in, what gets lost is style...
