I don't know where people get the courage to do things like this. Meet the Evel Knievel of our time FMX rider Josh Sheehan.

He was born in 1986 in Australia and has a reputation of being a very humble athlete. This took over a year to prepare for and was obviously worth it. It's being called 'the biggest trick in action sports history'.

Josh Sheehan rode up at 37 foot ramp at 60 mph on his 200 motorcycle did a triple backflip and landed safely.

This is just an amazing accomplishment. I wonder what was going through his mind. How did he keep count of the backflips? Did he count each time he looked at the sky (mine would be closed)? I'm betting he wasn't scared. It was probably the biggest adrenalin rush of his life so far.
