    After a slow start to the 2014 X-Fighters season, reigning world champ Tom Pagès made up for lost time in Madrid. In a sport renowned for its constant progression, the Frenchman had something extra special to share with the FMX community: the Bike Flip. We’d seen grainy footage online and across the social spectrum, but Pages waited until Spain to unveil the trick in competition – and what an unveiling it was. “I’ve been waiting to unveil the Bike Flip for a while now. I’m so happy,” Pagès said. “The runs here were loaded with special moves that made it like a best trick competition where every trick could have been the best.”

    His moment finally arrived. After dealing with injuries and spotty judging over the past couple years, Chase Hawk finally got his due. And it couldn’t have happened at a better time and place: at X Games in its inaugural year in a new town, Chase’s hometown of Austin, Texas.
