This past Saturday, May 28 history was made. Jed Mildon from New Zealand and BMXer laded the world’s first Triple Backflip at the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo, New Zealand. Mildon is only 24 years old.  Hmmm…what was I doing when I was 24 years old? What were you doing? What are you doing right now?

Guinness Book of World Records was there to witness and approve Mildon’s accomplished trick that has been sending thunderous applause throughout the community and beyond. “This is the perfect result to three intensive months of practicing and training for this moment,” said a thrilled Mildon.

Unit founder, Paul Everest, congratulated Mildon on his astounding accomplishment. “He has shown the world what is possible if you take your dream and single-mindedly chase your goals without being distracted or listen to the critics and naysayers,” Everest said.

Check out the video of Mildon getting it done!  Congrats from The Ski Channel!
