Cam Sinclair Does First Competitive Freestyle Competition Double Backflip
X Games

A Double Backflip? Man, That's Just Par For The Course.

We seem to be getting to the point where motocross riders will basically have to defy the law of gravity in order to do any crazier tricks. Anyway, last weekend rider Cam Sinclair nailed the first double-backflip in a competitive freestyle run (double backflips have been performed in single trick events).

Considering rider Jeremy Lusk died last year doing just a single backflip, I think it's fair to say that, uh, to be the best in this sport you have to quite literally put your life on the line.

Which means I will continue to be amazed by these videos from the comfort of my couch, where the greatest risk I run is eating a stale Dorito.

that is freaking awsome....i wanna get into motorcross sometime early in my life.....i figure if you can do a backflip on a BMX bike, shouldnt be too hard on a motorized vehicle, right?

I think he was saying a few choice words while doing that flip...but not appropriate for the Q
