Landing Airborne Records

Fearless Taupo BMX rider Jed Mildon has landed the world’s first ever triple backflip. A representative of the Guinness Book of Records was on hand to witness and approve the dangerous trick. Mildon sped down a 20m high ramp and pulled out the three full rotations during the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo. Mildon said: “This is the perfect result to three intensive months of practising and training for this moment. Landing with both wheels on the downramp was the most amazing feeling in the world.”
