Must Watch: First Triple Backflip(s) on Mountain Bike

Given the recent progression of mountain bike tricks and the insane level of talent out there, it was just a matter of time before triple flips became a thing. Sure, the first triple back flips on mountain bikes landed to dirt (as we know) required a massive purpose built jump with a mulch landing, but that’s how many tricks are first learned.

As the first episode in Travis Pastrana’s Action Figures, Gavin Godfrey and Ethen Roberts kick off the Nitro Circus series by both landing triple back flips. New episodes of Action Figures will air every other Friday. Check out the series preview with Travis himself after the break…

I love that these guys wear skinny jeans. Gotta keep the look no matter what!

Skinny jeans are more arrow.

Shenanigans with a high risk of spinal cord and other severe injuries.

@velo, spoken like a true roadie. Look how many crashes they took on-camera and still relatively ok. How many times can you get hit by a car and keep riding?

Evolution at work…for our entertainment.
