This “Step Hurdle” challenge is crazy. Here’s Artem Dolgopyat’s new submission to the challenge. If you are unfamiliar with what this is Bram Verhofstad from the Netherlads created this challenge with the step hurdle to a triple full and today Artem just submitted his new challenge with the step hurdle double front. Crazy but on the upside this challenge shows mastery of technique.
