Morgan managed to outdo even himself, flairing the new "jersey barrier" gap, tailwhipping anything he wanted and doing what was quite possibly the largest pocket air ever

Morgan Wade sailed around the course at mach speed. His best move was a bike flip, in which he flipped the bike over, front-to-back, in midair. Morgan pulled the trick over both the box jump and the spine.
The Brad Blanchard bikeflip had been a complete huck-and-hope until 2004. Senad Grosic laid claim to the trick over a box and Morgan Wade let one fly over the spine during the X-Games X in Los Angeles.
Morgan Wade, Ride BMX US, december 2004: Nathan Wessel was trying it on the vert ramp and I thought it was pretty cool. He said, "Why don't you try it?" so I tried it twice in the foam. Once I threw the bike away and I thought it wasn't going to work, but then Nate said something about how to throw the bike. I tried again and pretty much landed on the pedals in the foam. I just wanted to see how it felt, because I had never tried it before. Fifteen minutes later I pulled it on the resi and 15 minutes after that I pulled it on the box to pedals.
It's way easier over the spine. It's just a little bit of a low awkward landing, that's all. You don't jump forward: you just go straight up, do it, and go straight down. Going over the box you have to drift over the whole deck, so it makes it a little difficult to get the rotation right.
When I first learned it I had both gloves on and it was working since my grips were worn in real well. But then when I put new grips on I couldn't do the trick anymore because my hands were sticking to my grips. I went to get a drink of water and a light bulb went off in my head. I put my hands under the fountain, got my gloves soaking wet, and then pulled it first try. So that's the key-get your gloves wet, with new grips, anyway. Eventually I took the gloves off and just got my hand wet. Sweat works better. anyway, because it doesn't dry out as fast as water.
I tried a 360 bikeflip into the foam, but it didn't work out. It seems like you could try a regular three and come around like a three-whip. I don't know how you'd hang onto the bike.

Pro street worldchampion in Pragues, june 2005.
It was Morgan's first European contest and he made it count. He will be a regular from now on because he has put himself on the map winning pro street. He rode a double rail and tailwhipped out of it and did his first ever curved wallride to tailwhip in Prague. His tailwhips are from a different league and his quarterpipe air was sweet.
Morgan, www.snafubmx.com, june 29, 2005: I have some really bad news... I don't think I'm gonna be able to go to the Rebel Jam anymore. On thursday Joe Simon, Aaron Ross, Gaz, Matt Roe, Joel Moody, myself, and this kid Adam Royee that works at Empire went to Dallas to ride this new concrete skatepark in Allen Tx. It was awesome! We were ridin around havin a good old time filmin some stuff and then I went for this air on one of the quarters... Hung back wheel and went straight to my face! No good! A few hours and twenty stitches later they let me out of the hospital... Got a concussion and a rather large gash on my lip. I should be all good but the Dr. said I can't ride for two weeks. This actually means a week to a week and a half, but I've been pretty out of it since it happend and I don't think I'll be ready to ride by the time the comp comes round... I was really looking forward to riding the park and visiting germany for the first time! I'm actually really bummed out about it... I was thinking that I could maybe come just to hang out because the ticket is already there, but the more I thought about it the more I realised that I don't think I can handle the flight right now the way my head is pounding. I think I just need to heal up a bit and rest for a while. Anyway everything is fine inside and I should be alright in time for the "Poo Tour" in Denver...

Fat Tony, www.ridebmx.com, august 2006: Morgan Wade is awesome. His fun personality combined with his powerhouse riding and huge tricks makes it impossible to stop smiling while watching him ride. He started off both his runs with a pocket air transfer that was close to 25 feet long. The middle of his runs consisted of plenty of bangers like flairs and a 360-whip. At the end of his second run, Morgan pulled another pocket air transfer and secured his second place finish.

Morgan is riding a United frame.
Morgan, bmx.transworld.net, october 2009: Ive always liked United, and Corey Martinezs bike setup. Ian Morris hooked it up and flowed me a frame so Id have something new to scoot around. Im psyched! I really just wanted to try something new since Mutiny was over, and Im glad to give my support to T-Nez and United in the frame area!

ORLANDO DEW TOUR BREAKLESS.
Morgan, bmx.transworld.net, october 2009: The only reason I didnt have brakes at the Dew Tour is because I lost all the tabs and mounts that came with the frame! I went to put them on the day before I left and couldnt find the parts Still cant actually But I didnt have much of a choice, so I just went with it! Honestly, I showed up in Orlando not really knowing what to expect. I rode Simpel Session brakeless back at the start of the year, but that course was more street than it was transition. Id never ridden dirt brakeless though, so that was a new adventure for me. In both park and dirt, I really couldnt tell any difference It was a lot of fun and I pretty much felt like I rode the same as with brakes. At least three people came up to me after the contest and told me not to put them back on because they liked the way I rode without them better. They may not go back on I havent decided yet!
