Backside Triple Cork 1440

Last week on Jump 5 in the Snowmass park in Colorado Mark McMorris stomped the first-ever Backside Triple Cork 1440, the crew was sessioning the public park for the upcoming “Park Sessions” Project coming Fall 2011.

Four full rotations, off-axis three times. Stomped clean as anything, with nothing out of place. No doubt this will re-ignite the progression debate that has been particularly pertinent ever since Torstein stuck the first triple, but for now we’ll just say this: congratulations to Mark for achieving what some once thought impossible. Can’t wait to see what he’ll do next.
