Barry Nobles backflips in Pro Cruiser main

1 12 2009

The ABA grand nationals went down this past weekend.  Billed as the “greatest race on earth”, it has a lot of hype to live up to. Titles are on the line and the pressure to perform is at an all-time high.  In these situations, you never know what might happen.

You expect upsets, people channeling their inner psych and taking their skills to the next level. But if you’re like Barry Nobles…you channel your inner Cru Jones and backflip the pro section in the Pro Cruiser main!

Unfortunately for Barry,  this wasn’t Helltrack so instead of the win he would have to settle for a broken collarbone and the infamy that comes with throwing caution to the wind during a big race.  Nice work Barry! As they say, pain is temporary, but glory is forever.  Thanks for mixing things up and keeping the event interesting.

Does this look like a guy that would go for a backflip in a big race?

GO211 didn’t get the flip on video (so I don’t have it to show you).  Hopefully we’ll see it somewhere in the next few days. Someone, somewhere must have had a camera rolling during that main!

Not yet.

Barry posted the x-rays of his broken collarbone on barrynobles.com with a note saying:

“I will have video of the crash posted soon.”

Fingers crossed.
