Jed Mildon Throws the World’s First BMX Triple Backflip [VIDEO]
During the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo, New Zealand, action-sports history was created by 24-year-old Jed Mildon by landing the world's first BMX Triple Backflip.
Most of the time tricks like this are put down on the X Games world stage, but Mildon couldn't wait until then and actually pulled off the world record setting, triple rotation trick in front of his hometown at a free-to-the-public BMX show. A Guinness Book Of World Records representative witnesses and approved the trick.
Mildon told FatBMX.com: "This is the perfect result to three intensive months of practicing and training for this moment. The impact and implications hasn't sunken in yet, but I'm so pumped to have aimed for something once deemed impossible and made my dream a reality. Landing with both wheels on the down ramp was the most amazing feeling in the world!"
According TVNZ to Mildon told ONE News "In my mind I've started planning the next project but I definitely 100 percent know the world isn't ready for it. That was a 20 meter roll-in and I could handle going that fast (60 km/h) so I'm pretty sure we can make it bigger and better. I think you're going to see pretty crazy things in the near future and I think this is only the beginning."
Go behind the scenes of the entire project to get an idea of what it took to help Jed accomplish the Triple Backflip. The final successful jump may have looked easy, but the time, work, and effort to reach that point is far from it.
