Three freestyle motorcross (FMX) riders have completed a three-rider double backflip train at Caerphilly Castle – the first time the stunt has ever been achieved.
Riders Josh Sheehan, Jackson Strong and Luc Ackermann achieved the feat on Tuesday, September 10.
The trick involved the three riders cycling up a ramp one after each other, launching their 100kg bikes into the air and completing two full rotations before landing on the ground.
The event was held in Caerphilly to mark the 2020 World Nitro Games, which will be held in Cardiff next May.
It will be the first time the event will be held outside of the USA.
The event will see more than 100 of the best riders in FMX, BMX, skate and freestyle scooter will compete at the Principality Stadium.
After the stunt, Strong said: “To land that with two of my good friends is absolutely amazing.
“Normally freestyle motocross isn’t a team sport. You are usually going out there competing against each other.
“But, to have the opportunity to do something like this with two of my friends is something I will never forget.”
He added, “What we did here at Caerphilly Castle just screams Nitro World Games. It’s about doing world’s firsts.”
Fellow rider, Sheehan, said: “This was really cool; it was only a few years ago that there were only one or two guys doing double backflips.
“But today we had three people doing them. It shows that the sport is moving forward.
“We had to really focus on what we were doing, but to land it was exhilarating.”
Sheehan added: “I’m really excited for Wales 2020. Because not only is this an awesome location, there are a lot of people here that are into action sports.
Ackermann said: “It feels amazing. I’m very happy. It definitely feels like another step [in FMX] to land the triple double flip.”
