OMG, if you still have a pulse this is an jaw dropping 1:12 video.  It’s beautifully filmed, both helmet cam and multiple on ground cameras.  Total Respect for Jed Mildon who is an inspiration for us fans of good work and excellent play. It didn’t come easy, from the post on the video by

“New Zealand BMXer Jed Mildon has created action-sports history today by landing the world’s first Triple Backflip at the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo, New Zealand.

Mildon, 24, stomped the three rotations perfectly during the free-to-the-public BMX show in his home-town.

A representative of the Guinness Book Of World Records was on hand to witness and approve the ground-breaking trick that is sure to send shockwaves through the two-wheeled action-sports industry.

“This is the perfect result to three intensive months of practising and training for this moment,” said a thrilled Mildon.

“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 downramp was the most amazing feeling in the world!”
