Skateboarder Does A Board To Board Backflip

Sure, you’ve seen a skateboarder do a backflip before, but have you seen a skateboarder do a backflip and then switch skateboards in mid-air?

Jed Mildon Does A Triple Backflip On His BMX

Doing a backflip on a BMX bike? Easy. (Or so it seems, given the number of BMXers who can do one.)

Doing a double backflip on a BMX bike? Now we’re getting somewhere!

But doing a triple backflip on a BMX bike? Insanity! Impossible! Instant Death!

Or not, as Jed Mildon has become the first person to complete at triple backflip at the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo, New Zealand.

Don’t believe me?

Here’s the proof:

…Rhys Millen will try to backflip again on New Years Eve?

Red Bull New Year No Limits

Remember last year when Rhys Millen managed to miss the landing pit during his truck backflip practice and break three vertebrae in his neck and compress and break two vertebrae in his back?

Well apparently his doctors have given him the go and he’s going to give it another try this New Year’s Eve during the second annual Red Bull New Year No Limits event, and he’s even posted a video of the crash to wet everyone’s appetite:

According to Rhys:

Last year we attempted what was before then thought impossible. Laws of physics and vehicle dynamics were pushed to the limits with success, but failure came in one small mis-calculation. My body can be broken but my mind cannot. This year, people will witness the first ramp to ramp back flip in an off-road truck – ever.

In addition to Rhys’ record setting attempt, Robbie Maddison will also be breaking a record during the event as he attempts to jump over 100 feet into the air and land atop the replical Arc de Triomphe in front of Paris Las Vegas. He’ll then drop off the Arc and freefall for more than 50 feet to land on a massive landing ramp below.

I know I’ll be tuning in; will you?

…Ken Block and Travis Pastrana can fly?

Racer X Magazine

Ken Block and Travis Pastrana look like they’re trying out for the next superman movie on this cover shoot for Racer X magazine.

The stunt involved Travis backflipping his MotoX bike over Block’s Subaru, and then fire was added in just for fun (and to keep things interesting).

When asked about the stunt, Block replied “Glad Travis didn’t hit his head on the top of my car, and at least I didn’t break my back this time.”

…Rhys Millen is an injured motorsports legend?

There’s good news and bad news regarding Rhys Millen’s truck backflip.

The good news is that Red Bull has released another video about the jump:

The bad news is that on Rhys’ fourth cardboard box practice landing (he successfully landed three previous jumps into cardboard) he overshot the landing area and broke three vertebrae in his neck and compressed and broke two vertebrae in his back. Thus, no 360-degree Red Bull Experiment this year, though thankfully, Rhys will live to drive another day.

Anyone want to take his place?
