5th place pro and best trick @ 2004 Backyard jam round 2, october 2004, Derby, UK.
In case the spectators hadnt seen enough lunacy in the pro street finals, Snickers put up £1500 for the best trick contest where riders had 30 mins to perform their ultimate stunt. Justifying his 2004 NORA street rider cup - and once again leaving the jam with not one but two cheques Federals Corey Martinez took the honours. Having pulled off an inverted 360 over the jersey barrier straight into a barspin to icepick on the miniramp backrail, and a massive whip gap from spine to doubles landing, during his 5th place street run, it was hard to see how this could be bettered. But Corey is Corey, and had a little something left up his sleeve (and just take a minute to think about this!!) ..a barspin to icepick to barspin back in, on top of the vert wall of all things. 4th attempt. Job Done.
