Australian motocross champion Josh Sheehan won the 2014 Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour, but he was not done impressing us yet. The FMX legend accomplished something that had never been done before: landing a freestyle motocross triple flip.
BMX star, Jed Mildon, had done the triple flip in 2011, but it had never been done on a motorized bike before. Sheehan was determined to do what Mildon had done and make sports history. That was when he decided to pursue the freestyle motocross triple flip that nobody believed was possible.
Another person that was pursuing the seemingly impossible feat was the legendary Travis Pastrana. He chose to work with Sheehan and allowed him to use Pastranaland beside him. A specialized ramp was constructed to give the motocross champion enough speed to be able to practice the stun on a 100kg+ Honda CRF450 and an XXL airbag. He allowed people to watch his attempts online. This created some hype.
Finally, on April 28th, Sheehan tried the triple flip on dirt and landed it, setting a new record. You can watch him nail it below:
