BMX riders are known for their thrilling performances of seemingly death-defying tricks, but one athlete took it to the next level and just made history. Jed Mildon, who conquered the first triple backflip a few years ago, has just landed the world’s first quadruple backflip.
Nitro Circus rider Jed Mildon launched off a 21-foot box jump and pulled off the biggest trick in BMX history, nailing a quadruple backflip for the first time ever.
Mildon joked with Transworld that a quintuple backflip might be possible.
“Do you think it’s possible to keep going and push it to five?
Jed: Of course it’s possible, good luck, though! [Laughs]”
This feat comes after a year of competition between Mildon and fellow BMX rider James Foster to be the first to land the jump. Mildon won thanks to a score of injuries suffered by Foster trying to score the first quadruple backflip, which virtually took him out of the running — but who knows? The two of them will surely find some new death-defying trick to try next.
