2015 has been the year for some heavy progression when it comes to flips on a BMX bike. Jed Mildon did a Quadruple backflip, then Ryan Williams did a triple front flip… Now today we get to see the third* (not sure if that’s actually fact or not) rider, Brandon Schmidt, in the world pull a triple backflip. One thing all of these guys have in common? They’re all apart of the Nitro Circus crew. What’s even crazier is that Jed is the only one who rides BMX professionally, where the other two just do it for fun with their focus on other stuff. Either way, here’s a video giving you a look at Brandon putting in the work and landing the triple backflip.
Nitro Circus dropped this video that gives us a look into the crazy life Trevor Jacob lives (which will probably make you jealous), then at the 2 minute mark we get a look at how Brandon Schmidt pulled off the Aussie Roll, or a double backflip 360! Check it out!
“First, we check in with Trevor Jacob to see how he takes his work home with him. Then Brandon Schmidt collects the bounty for being the first Nitro Circus star to nail the famed Aussie Roll off our Gigant-A-Ramp – a BMX Double Backflip 360. ”
