The Story Behind the World's First Triple Backflip - Jed Mildon 1

On May 28, 2011 Unit BMX rider Jed Mildon attempted and successfully landed the first-ever Triple Backflip on a bike in his hometown of Taupo, New Zealand. In just three days the videos of Jed's incredible achievement have reached almost 4 million views online, cementing his name into action-sports folklore.



This new video takes you behind the scenes of the whole project to give you an idea of the commitment it's taken Jed to accomplish the Triple Backflip. Jed might've made the final successful jump look easy, but what it has taken him to reach that point is far from it. NZ rider Jake Prebble joins Jed at the main event, and throws down some massive front flip tricks as well.
