Video: Aussie rider pulls off first ever FMX triple backflip

This is terrifyingly brilliant.

Australian freestyle motocross rider Josh Sheehan has joined the ranks of Evel Knievel and other daredevil legends by completing the first ever triple backflip in history.

He performed the death-defying stunt in Maryland, USA, in front of a huge supporting crowd.

The footage in the video is incredible, especially the POV shots from the rider's helmet.

It's an impressive stunt alright, but ask him to try to go down three steps at the Central Bank on a skateboard with Goths watching his every move and see how he gets on.
