Is This The Craziest FMX Trick Ever Attempted?

Tom Pages tries to land the first ever FMX Bike Flip!

We’ve watched this clip from freestyle motocross rider Tom Pages many times this morning and we still don’t fully understand how he managed to pull it off.

The Frenchman hits a quarter pipe, steps nonchalantly off the seat, flips his bike in mid-air with his hands before hopping back on the saddle to land comfortably in a pile of dirt.

Rumour has it Travis Pastrana landed it in training a few years ago after seeing it done on a BMX but he only managed to land in a foam pit. This is the first time it’s been done on solid ground, and it looks sweet!

Pages has pulled this out just two days before the second round of the 2014 Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour in Osaka so he might be showing it off to the world and scaring off his rivals at the same time!
