This was one of the sickest things I got to see in person this year. I will never forget the Red Bull Comp in SF and all the good times there. Mad props to Kozo for being the first to do this on a fixed gear in competition…. and with NO STRAPS !!
This shit is way to epic ! This past year was sick we had out first back flip on a fixed gear and first triple back flip on BMX.
This was quoted from the you tube video link – ” New Zealand BMXer Jed Mildon has created action-sports history today by landing the world’s first Triple Backflip at the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo, New Zealand.
Mildon, 24, stomped the three rotations perfectly during the free-to-the-public BMX show in his home-town.
A representative of the Guinness Book Of World Records was on hand to witness and approve the ground-breaking trick that is sure to send shockwaves through the two-wheeled action-sports industry.
“This is the perfect result to three intensive months of practising and training for this moment,” said a thrilled Mildon.
“The impact and implications hasn’t sunken in yet, but I’m so pumped to have aimed for something once deemed impossible and made my dream a reality.”
“Landing with both wheels on the downramp was the most amazing feeling in the world!”
The Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo was held at a public recreational park, with Mildon carving an 20m (66ft) high super-ramp into a hillside that flowed through a 3.6m (11ft) high super-kicker to Jed’s purpose-built Mega-Megabox landing.
Unit founder Paul Everest congratulated Mildon on his amazing feat.
“Jed has proven himself to be one of the world’s best BMX riders and we salute him for having both the drive and ability to change the face of action-sports.
“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.”
The Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam was made possible with the help of Unit, Bikefest and Taupo District Council, MB Century, McDonald’s Taupo, theairbag.co.nz, foampit.co.nz and Pilgrim Bike Co.

Jordan Alatorre is 16 and from Long Beach, Ca. Jordan has been sending clips my way of his riding ever since his first fixed freestyle build. This kid has progressed so so much and can ride fakie like no other which is something I know many pros have trouble with or just can not do at all. The 180 at the 1:29 mark was impressive. Keep up the good work man but for a noob to the fixed freestyle scene you are getting good quick man. props !
