To the obviously uninterested female reporter:

No, honey! We don't want you to run down there. We want you to sit down, shut up, and let us bask in the pure awesomeness that is X Games. Rock on Frisby!!

If you look closely, there is a "bump" in the center of the ramp at the very end. The skids are unaffected while the track (back end) gets launched up. That gives him the rotation he needed. So he didn't do much but hold on.

#6 Good "stunt" for sure, but the rider didn't put in the effort to generate the rotation like a biker or a skier would. Its takes lots of practice to establish the right muscle memory to achieve a good landing.

But this one was assisted. Its simply impossible without that bump at the tip of the ramp. The snowmobile is too heavy for the rider to produce a frontal rotation by shifting his body weight.

To me all he did was set the speed keep it straight and hang on. No other input. He might as well have a nitrogen powered piston on the back of the snowmobile, just like a movie stunt, when they flip cars.

Its much more impressive when a biker or a skier does the same trick specially when you realize how much practice and physical effort went into the flip and how many times they failed in practice.
