See Absolutely Amazing Footage of Jed Completing What Was Thought To Be Impossible, The Quad Backflip
Ok, we admit it, this is more BMX than Mountain Biking but when someone rewrites history we just had to write about it.
It took 4 years, numerous attempts, hours upon hours of planning, many broken bones but the day finally arrived. Jed Mildon and James Foster, two friends who were the only two to successfully complete the triple competed to be the first to land the quad, this day belonged to Jed as he was to pull off the incredible. An absolutely sick and amazing feat, but just in case you want to know what it took to compete for the quad backflip?
In an interview with BMW Transworld:
Jed: Just a couple KOs in the airbag when I didn’t rotate enough [laughs].
James: Ten broken ribs and a separated shoulder. I broke five ribs on tour with Nitro in Australia right before we were supposed to go back out to Travis’, and re-broke another when I came up short on the airbag landing when I was only 70-80% healed from that injury.
