The Canberra native had been training hard in the lead up to the event and it showed when it counted, with the lofty double misty sealing his win in the first ever Australian Mini-Megaramp competition, following a huge double backflip earlier in the runs.
Iain Smith caught the mini-megaramp competition in all its glory, including the winning trick in all its suicidal glory. Big ups to Tristan for putting his body on the line for the sake of ARO glory, you definitely deserved the win. Nitro Circus anyone?
