For the first time since 2006, the longest stoppie competition was brought back into the format as the main event on Friday. "Longest stoppie is inherently dangerous." stated XDL series founder Randy Grube "In order to roll far, the rider needs to accelerate to triple digits and at the pick up point, hit the front brake and bring up the rear of the bike. Any small mistake can spell disaster. So to be quite honest, as the event organizer, I was in no mood to introduce this additional element of danger, especially because I didn't want to put the athletes at risk. But at the season opener this year Jamal Kindred and Nick Hernandez sat me down and gave me convincing and logical arguments for why we needed this competition at Nashville and I listened. I'm glad I did."
