Cam Zink makes history with a 100-foot backflip
Watch a replay of Cam Zink’s world-record backflip below:
Cam Zink successfully landed a 100-foot, 3-inch dirt-to-dirt backflip on a mountain bike last night, setting a world-record live in front of a national TV audience.
Zink hit a top speed of 46 mph on a 910-foot runway, before flipping 100 feet and absolutely stomping the landing at Mammoth Mountain, California. By setting the new Guinness world-record, Zink surpassed his own unofficial record of 78 feet, which was set in Utah last year.
As impressive of a feat as it was, it sounded like this could be just the beginning for Zink, who said 150 and even 200 feet could be in his future.
The event will air again Sunday, August 24 at 2 p.m. EST, as part of ABC’s “World of X-Games” show.
