BMX rider Jed Mildon has become the first human being to successfully land a quadruple backflip on a BMX bike. The feat took place at Travis Patrana’s “Pastranaland” complex in Maryland and was executed after many high-profile riders had attempted but failed, often leading to broken bones.
The 27-year-old Mildon told the New Zealand Herald,
“This is the pinnacle of my life. Kinda like a story that you want growing up as a child but you don’t know how it’s going to pan out. It’s unreal.
To finally stomp the quad and reach my goal is unbelievable. I’m so pumped. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my family, including my Nitro Circus mates. James Foster is such an incredible athlete and a great friend. He pushed me to challenge myself and test my limits.”
Mildon was the first ever to to do a triple backflip on a bike back in 2011, a feat that garnered over 11 million views on YouTube.
The bar has been set a little higher.
