Stuntman Robbie Maddison celebrated his 28th birthday this week with a hard-to-believe stunt. On his Motocross bike, Maddison planned to perform a backflip over the Thames using the lifting Tower bridge in London. This stunt was long anticipated by Motocross enthusiasts from all over.

Red Bull sponsored the event (they usually do--it’s extreme sports, after all). They’ll also be hosting the upcoming XAlps competition next weekend, the Flying Bulls and the X-Fighters series. Stats for Backflipping Bikers Trending: Older & Mild
