Have You Seen This? The first-ever BMX quad backflip


July 16, 2015

CRAZY LAND — Most have seen the antics of the Nitro Circus by now. These athletes find the most insane stunt they can attempt and then do it. For example, jumping out of an airplane with no parachute.

Well, the group is at it again. This time there are no planes involved but extreme heights do play a role.

This video highlights some members of the Nitro crew as they attempt to be the first BMX riders to ever land a quadruple backflip. I once landed a wicked bunny hop on my 21-speed — that's right world a 21-speed — and I felt pretty great about that. This, however, is slightly more intense.

Apparently, some of the riders who attempted got hurt trying the stunt, which should come as a surprise to no one, but you have to admire their determination to get back up and try it again. Or maybe not. Maybe you just want to think of them as insane.

Whatever your feelings on the quadruple backflip, it's pretty cool to watch.

Check out the video and cheer as one guy pulls it off and feel bad for the other guy who sacrificed shoulders and tailbones just to see his buddy pull it off.
