One commenter on video wrote: "I'm a nervous wreck just watching it from a recliner."

For his efforts, McGarry pulled in the silver medal. He also pulled in the Red Bull Bike People's Choice Award from fans watching online.

“Last night I was freaking out," McGarry told reporters, "wondering if I should do it. But I had the speed, it felt right, so I just sent it!”
