As noted at ESPN on Sunday, January 29, 2012, Heath Frisby successfully completed the first snowmobile front flip during the Snowmobile Best Trick competition that night in Aspen, Colorado.

According to report, Frisby, 27, performed his amazing trick in his first of two runs in the Best Trick finals, garnering a score of 96.66, moments after fellow competitor Justin Hoyer injured himself after a double backflip attempt.

“This has been everything to me, really. My whole family, everybody, all my friends have been behind me through all this.” Heath Frisby was quoted as saying after his stunning performance, noting that he was not distracted by what happened to Hoyer, whom he also considers as one of his friends.

“I know my grandma is watching — she must have gotten a little chill there. Grandpa, I love you, man. We got it. We got it.” Frisby added, who has now a total of seven Winter X Games medals, including a Best Trick in 2010.

As of this writing, Frisby’s snowmobile front flip YouTube video has nearly 722,000 views; which made him beat Colten Moore‘s tsunami Indian flip (89.66) and Joe Parsons‘ no-footed can-can back flip (88.00).
