Mike Ross Lands First MTB Flat Drop Cashroll

by Alicia Leggett  

The Crankworx Summer Series is in full swing at the Silverstar Bike Park, and we're starting to see some big tricks as riders practice for the slopestyle finals Sunday. With Crankworx Whistler almost here, too, riders are warming up for the most prestigious slopestyle event of the year, with the trick magnitude skyrocketing to match.

Mike Ross shared a clip on social media of what, to our knowledge, is the world's first mountain bike cashroll off a flat drop. (If anyone knows of a rider accomplishing this feat before, please let us know in the comments.)

bigquotesSoooo pumped to get this done! Absolutely insane!Mike Ross

Massive congratulations to Mike.

 So I just finished watching Friday Fails and have a few pointers:
1. Way too much speed, you should really go slower into a drop.
2. Needs to get his weight waaaaay further back.
3. Cameraman needs to ask,"You good?"

 Don’t forget adding a “pop” at the end of the drop that you have zero idea how to do properly.

 Who needs rear suspension when your wheel can flex like that and stay together.

 Props! That was rad! Reminded me of a takeoff on skis more than any bike move I've seen.

 What is a cashroll in technical terms, 360 front flip?
  • 2 1
 Yeah basically, like a corked 720 but you rotate over the rear wheel instead of the front
  • 2 1
 In skiing this would be a flat spin 7. Less of a front flip 3 than a Misty flip 7 would be. Cork 7 is set backwards.
  • 7 1
 I'd say Cash roll used to be a 180 to backflip to 180, like this:

Anyway nowadays any wonky 7 seems to count, but to do what Ross did off that flat drop is just... holy shit. Next level!

 according to daniel dhers, the inventor, it's a 180, then a back flip, 180 out.
