BMX Plus! march 1985: This wasn't just any performance. It was the debut of the newest member of the Hutch team, Jose Yanez, 25,of Phoenix, Arizona. Woody Itson and Mike Dominguez were the stars of the Hutch team, but Yanez was present for his first show. After Woody dazzled the crowd with his ground tricks and Dominguez awed the group with his aerials, Hutch brought out Yanez for the finale. Yanez had only one trick, but it was a killer. The crowd moved back to give him a clear approach to a narrow takeoff ramp about five feet high and a wide landing ramp about six feet high. Jose came tearing across the floor at full speed and hit the first ramp. As he soared into the air, he pulled back on his handlebars of his Hutch, and as the crowd gasped in amazement, he and his bike completed a full back flip in the air, came down to a save landing on the second ramp, and rode away. There was no doubt about it, Jose Yanez had succesfully completed the greatest freestyle trick ever attempted.
