Mitchie Brusco takes the #2 spot on the X Games Top Ten list. The 900 was first landed on a skateboard 20 years ago (at X Games, of course). The trick remains so difficult that fewer than 10 people have done it at X Games. Then came the 1080; you can count the people who have landed that trick on one hand. Now we have the 1260.
–Mitchie Brusco landed the world’s first 1260 on the quarterpipe during Run 3 of Skateboard Big Air. He crashed attempting the trick in his first two runs, and that came after crashing on it twice at X Games Shanghai. He made it look easy in his 5th overall attempt at X Games. The 1260 was part of a line that included a switch 180 over the 50-ft. gap. Despite the world’s first 1260, Mitchie took silver.
He now owns 10 X Games medals total. And 1260 bragging rights.
