Moto X Best Trick 2008: Video of medal winners

The gold medalist doesn't do a backflip, but takes his own body through a simultaneous barrel roll and backflip. I'm more enthused about the silver and bronze medal tricks. Unfortunately, the clip doesn't show these in slow mo which is necessary to get the full effect.

ESPN makes this video available for embed, but didn't make available the video of the failed front flip by Jim DeChamp. I found it on YouTube, though. This video is shot by someone who was at the event:

[Update: Initial reports last night were that DeChamp suffered compression fractures in a few vertebrae. He did walk away.]
