I don't usually post on extreme sports here, but then again, it's not every day you see a dude do a backflip on a tricycle. Yes, you read that last correctly.

Thanks to With Leather, here's X-Games standout/organ-donor-to-be Travis Pastrana who decided why not up the ante on huge backflip jumps over massive gaps by doing them on a tricycle. This is what happened.

I like how the video mentions it was his "3rd attempt." I wonder how the other two went. "He didn't die" would I think be the correct answer.

Tricycles just got exxxxxxtreeeeeemmmme! [With Leather]

Lets see him do it after 10 pints of beer in a shopping cart. Then he can wake up next morning and wonder where the bruises came from

Him and Rob Dierden (sp???) have back to back shows on MTV. Both guys are nuts and of course I will watch!

Mr. Pastrana, we salute you.

The best part of this is that he rocked a PINK tricycle.

That dude has some big cajunes. Or at least they are big after that landing, lol

... or else he has none, and now talks in a real high squeeky voice...    what's next, baby strollers?  *LOL*

He should do flips in a Rally Car.

He has.

C'mon, The day he does it with a Wheelbarrow, OWNED.... and that includes everybody who says otherwise!

Obviously, he made a deal with Mephisto and eventually you will see Travis' head turn into a ball of flames and that hot wheel morph into a motorcycle from Hell.  And years later, Nic Cage will star in the movie of his life.  And that movie will blow goats.

I'll be impressed when he does it on a unicycle !!!

Seriously......that's f'd up !!

Now you figure after the third attempt and wearing a pin-strip suit...if it matched his drawers..hell, it would have matched my

Considering this was his third attempt, my guess is that his drawers are no longer pin-striped!...

Holy Shi%...Was that a pin-stripe suit???

Let's see him do that on a Green Machine, then I will be impressed.

I wanna see the shopping cart back flip! That'd be bad ass!

Pastrana will jump with anything.  Motorcyles, Snomobiles, Rally Cars, Trikes, Big Wheels, Shopping Carts, Wheelchairs, you name it.

So the third time is a charm!

"I like how the video mentions it was his "3rd attempt." I wonder how the other two went. "He didn't die" would I think be the correct answer. "

Or that his a-s-s hadn't completely broken...yet.

With all due respect to the greatest daredevil in the history of mankind, take that, Evel Knievel!
Pastrana's Tyke Trike gets my vote over Evel and the X-2 Skycycle that fizzed out over the Snake River Canyon. Travis Pastrana, always worth the price of admission.
