X-GAMES MYSTERY MAN | BRUCE COOK
Kelowna native, Bruce Cook is set to make a little bit of X-Games history tomorrow night. Cook will be the first Canadian to participate in the ‘Best Trick’ category and judging by the buzz Cook has a little treat in store (Link). Not too much is known about this Mystery Man but one thing is forsure, the stage doesn’t gets much bigger than X-Games let alone in Los Angeles. The virtually unknown Canuck will face off against 7 others, as each rider gets two chances to throw the most captivating and insane trick. General rule of thumb and strategy – go big – high risk, high reward. The 5’11″, part-time contractor, sent in footage of himself attempting a Rock Solid backflip (basically lets go of the back of the seat while upside down) into a foam pit and that secured his invite. Rumour has it that fellow competitor, Japanese rider Taka Higashino, plans on attempting the same trick so we definitely will have a bit of a competition. Especially considering that Taka was the first rider to land said trick. Best of luck Bruce. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been cooking. ESPN caught up with the young gun to discuss X-Games and this mysterious trick. You can read it in it’s entirety here. Bruce Cook Reel from Andy Holmes on Vimeo.
