You all know the video. You’ve all seen it. You’ve all loved it. You’ve all probably shared it with your friends in the past, shouting at the screen as you watch it time and time again in disbelief.
It is of course Kelly McGarry’s backflip over the 72ft canyon gap at Red Bull Rampage in 2013; a stunt that would rack up over 26.5 million hits on the original point-of-view YouTube video alone and make McGarry a US celebrity in the process.
The video was played so often after McGarry stomped it that most biker’s mums and dads would still recognise him to this day. The guy was popping up on morning television, chat shows and all sorts of places you’d never expect to find a rugged-haired mountain biker.
