“Colorado was good to me,” Montgomery told The Link after returning from a 10-day stint in the state. “In those 10 days I grabbed a win at the Outlaws of Dirt event in Lyons, Colorado, and a 2nd at the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado!”
Montgomery went huge on the above transfer, throwing in a tailwhip on his final run—click here to see the Vital MTB video and skip to 3:42 to see Montgomery’s tailwhip transfer motion. The move was enough to tie him for 1st with Brayden Barret-Hay in points standing, but FMB World Tour rules don’t allow for a tie-breaker and Barret-Hay won by judges’ decision.
“Thanks everyone for keeping me in the right mind,” Montgomery told his sponsors. “This year is going to be a good year especially coming back from my thumb injury.”
It already has been a good year for Montgomery, riding strong with several wins under his belt despite recovering from a shattered thumb that required multiple surgeries and led to an infection in 2012.
