Australian Jackson Strong took a Gold Medal in last summer’s Moto X at the Summer Games. He was inspired to try his trick that won him gold in the Winter X Games on a snowmobile and needless to say that it did not end well.

It’s reported that Strong had only spent four hours on a snowmobile prior to attempting this trick that resulted in a runaway snowmobile. The throttle got stuck when it hit the ground and started charging towards the crowd. It’s safe to say that Strong will need some more practice before trying this trick again.
