    Anyone got a clip or a link to the first time pastrana tried a back flip? He tried like 2 or 3 times on the side of a ramp before he landed it. At the time it was amazing. Tonight some prick said a dude didnt even do a trick while he was backflipping over a huge gap.

    Are you sure you're not thinking of Carey Hart at the Gravity Games?

    Im pretty sure it was travis at an early Xgames. But Ill look up Carey.

    All I get in my searches are the double back flip.

    Lots.
    First off it wasn't Pastrana. Mike Metzger was the first one to do it in competition. But I can't find Travis's first backflip either.

    Im talking about the one after the competition was over and whoever it was was trying to a back flip which had never been done before up the side of a ramp. Kinda like when Tony Hawk was trying to land the 900 after the competition was over.

    I found the Carey Heart vid but that wasnt it. Im sure it was an X games.
