During the Trans Jam Contest hosted in Greenville, NC, hometown rider Austin Hardee went for his very first attempt at the double backflip on a real box. Looping out on the first attempt, he came back and went for it again. The crowd was pumped and he received a standing ovation after pulling it clean.
