6. Chuck Carothers Lands the First Body Varial, 2004

Legendary moments from down the years

2004 saw the invention of a whole new genre of motocross trick – the separation of man and bike. It was only a year earlier that the first 360 was stomped so stepping it up to this level was a whole other kettle of fish.

Chuck Carothers seized his moment and pulled off a body varial (nicknamed the Corolla) on his very first attempt, taking the gold in motocross best trick and taking home the hefty sum of £50,000.

What makes it even better is the fact it was the first time he’d ever attempted it without a foam pit. Crazy!
