World first triple backflip

Josh Sheehan lands world first triple backflip on a motocross bike

HERE'S Nitro Circus stunt rider Josh Sheehan doing the world first triple backflip on a motocross bike at Travis Pastrana's 'Pastranaland' complex in Maryland, US, yesterday.

A press release on the stunt said: 'Previously considered in extreme sports circles as impossible as climbing Mt. Everest, swimming the English Channel or running a four-minute mile, the triple backflip is a groundbreaking milestone.'

Who wants to be first to tell them about Everest, the Channel and the four-minute mile?
