No One Has Ever Landed A Quadruple Backflip, But This Pro Biker Is About To Make History
For years, professional BMX bikers have thought that landing a quadruple backflip was impossible. Many tried, but no one could figure out the right speed, trajectory and athleticism necessary to actually land upright. With so many bikers injured in their attempts, some wondered, was the trick worth it?
For bikers Jed Mildon and James Foster, the quad flip had become an obsession. Both tried and failed numerous times, with Foster breaking 10 ribs and separating a shoulder in the process. However, Mildon wasn't ready to give up. On a ramp in New Zealand, Nitro Circus filmed this memorable moment in BMX history. The moment his front tire hits the ramp is something you have to see for yourself.
