  2. it was BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!

    I spotted it on the new last night and was most impressed!!!!
  3. :shock: i saw this on the news but seeing it again is just jaw dropping. That dude is a GOD on a dirt bike!!
  4. Thanks for posting - Unbelievable

    It took nearly a hundred years of biking to do one backflip and now someone does two :shock:

    Come a long way since the first backflip in 2000 - see here
  5. Gives me goosebumps watching that!

    Imagine the feeling he had when he ran back to the top of the mound to accept the cheers of the crowd!

    I remember not long ago when it was an absolutely massive deal that someone could do a single back-flip on a dirt bike.

    Bring on the triple!!!

    Edit: Dammit, toecutter beat me to it with the single backflip comment.
  6. Awesome stuff.

  7. And an aussie came third in the same comp :grin:

  12. Saw this on the news the other night too; nice to see some good portrayal of bikes instead of the usual negative publicity.

    I was watching for his landing and it was perfect, he must have been buzzing for 48 hours afterward...
  13. hahaha thats crazy i remember when corey hart did the first backflip and that was pretty amazing
  14. Phaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!

    :shock: :shock: :eek: :eek: :cool: :cool:
  15. Yep absolutely awesome the first thing my 11 year old said ' do you think they can do 3 ?? ' is it even possible ? I remember when they thought 1 was impossible and he said he wouldn't do 2 again but you can put money on him or someone else doing it now . Amazes me how these guys can do stuff like that imagine the high you'd be on after doing a single flip let alone 2 .
  16. Red Bull gave him Wiiings! See? This stuff really works :)
