World’s First Switch Backside 1440 Triple Cork

News just arrived that Swiss rookie and Nitro rider Pat Burgener stomped the world’s first switch backside 1440 triple cork. Considering he did this at his home resort in Crans-Montana in slushy conditions (with hardly any snow left for that matter) this is even more impressive. And it also makes us disregard the fact that the trick includes a considerable hand drag.

We are quite stoked over here that of all possible riders it was Pat, a young European, who laid this trick down. Even though quite young Pat has worked his way up the ranks with quite a few respectable contest results this season, including a halfpipe victory at this year’s Swiss Championships in Zermatt, and a second place at the slopestyle event of the Burn River Jump in Livigno.

We are sure we’ll see at lot more from this promising young man!
