Vienna Air King 2014 Best Trick Winner Is...

Apr 5, 2014
by Bartek Wolinski  
Szymon Godziek takes home the Best Trick category at Vienna Air King 2014 with his backflip cliffhanger combination! He beat Nicholi Rogatkin’s triple tailwhip and Torquato Testa’s backflip opposite tailwhip. He also did a cashroll on the second jump but in the end the cliffhanger combo gave him the win.

And here's a video:

Freeze frame it around the 21 second mark to see the extension. Just ridiculous!

 Is anyone done this trick in a competition before?

 What I can't wait to find out is if Szymon Godziek is going to be able to put down full complete runs or if he will be another best trick Mike Montgomery?

 Yep, classic M&M FMX style there, but where is M&M now? He's one of the best assets the sport has & we almost never see him. GODziek's throwing it in competition too. There's a big difference.

 Too bad Tom van Steenbergen got ripped off in the qualifiers... best trick was sick, guys were throwing it down like mad... Rogatkins tripple whip came out of NOWHERE, and Torquato was sick as well... he's my favourite for tomorrow.

 what tricks did Tom do in his run?

 I don't remember his run exactly, but i remember he was severely underrated in his run. His had quite a bit of variety, great height and he was also super smooth on ALL the jumps. No pedaling, no kicking up dust in the landings... and he was then put into 18th or so at the time.

 Ones Söderström is back to 100% he better start working on 360 triple whips to stay on top of the tailwhip game.

 I think Martin threw one or two three-whips last year, but I'm not sure. One thing is for sure, few guys out there were able to throw down massive tricks with real style, and Martin always was one of them.

 Martin threw a triple whip at joyride on his unlucky run. Thanks p-botham.

 with the crowd that size and the jumps looking that pristine its hard to believe that Vienna Air King is only a FMB "Silver Event". That event looked like it had an awesome atmosphere some sweet jumps and some even sweeter tricks.

 Going by this its going to be a mad year! Triples tailwhips, backflip cliff-hangers! Its really being stepped up for 2014!

 I like to see progression, but I still love the simple tricks.

 Simple tricks perfectly executed, or executed with a big extension/push to their limites, are also great to watch ! Smile

 That's how I rolled when I was skateboarding full time. Single kickflips across gaps, 180's down stair sets. Just so slow and clean.

 Yea, l honestly think there's nothing better to see than an incredibly slow, lazy backflip or 360, just looks so pretty

 Vansteenbergen didn't do best trick . After getting robbed in his qualifier probably thought, what's the use?
  • 2 0
 That's fully dialed. I would like to see if his cashroll was as clean. Now to do it in a full run.

 He is more than capable of throwing down a full run as is tomas! should be a good year for both of them!

 Man when he pulled that back in he looked like he still had plenty of time to chuck a bar or a late whip. Someday no doubt.
