Shane Beschen was a title contender in the 1990s, he never quite made the final jump and took the crown, but he did achieve something at Kirra which will put him down in history. He achieved the first, and only, perfect 30 heat score. That’s 3 perfect 10 rides.
What makes it even more special now is that riders are scored on their two best rides, so it can never beaten. Beschen is still on tour, but as a coach, and he has women’s world champ Carissa Moore in his stable of talented riders.
