Exclusive: First-Ever 1080 degree backflip!

Published April 1st, 2003





The ramp to ramp leap, documented by film crews for a prime-time television show, was measured at 700 feet. RC had almost nine seconds of hang time. The jump was performed at the recently closed SaddleRock Park.



Says RC: “I started practicing for this about three years ago. I built some ramps, and basically just started jumping. Each day for the past few years I added one degree of rotation on the jump, and worked my way up to the triple 1080. It’s not really something I planned, but it did happen. I just decided I’ve pretty much conquered everything lately in motocross, so why not?”
