Jaie Toohey, Cam White and Jed Mildon are all insane. That is my assessment at least, after watching the tricks they do over what very well could be some of the scariest dirt jumps in the world.
A day later than planned, but that’s okay. There was a ton of videos posted up last week in the Daily Section worth watching, so I think the delay makes up for it. This week we’ve got 19 videos for you to check out featuring the likes of Jason Phelan, Pete Sawyer, Chad Osburn, Daniel Sandoval, Daniel “Lil’ D” Martinez, Mike Aitken, Brock Olive, Larry Edgar, Keith Treanor, Tony Malouf, Tyer Fernengel, Brandon Webster, Greg Illingworth, Jed Mildon, Phil Demattia and many more. Let’s get into this!
Holy shit… Jed Mildon dropped another new one on the Nitro Circus Live tour… Check out the first double backflip tailwhip. Amazing even though I hate seeing double backflips, haha.
It’s pretty amazing to see what these guys do all the time during the Nitro Circus Live shows all over the place. They recently caught up with Jed Mildon to get his perspective on things along with give you a look at the Warrior Flip which is so wild. Check this out. Who wouldn’t want to live like this for a while?
As expected, here’s some more footage from the Cam White’s Hillside Dirt Jam that surfaced. Looks like things got nuts!

On a picture-perfect, windless day more than 2000 fans from around the remote Southland province in New Zealand’s South Island, grateful for a temporary relief from the massive earthquake disaster hours away in Christchurch, piled through the gates of the Frew brothers’ 2500-acre farm to witness some of the best riders in the world throw down on the FMX, BMX and MTB dirt jumps.
Riders include Levi Sherwood, Josh Sheehan, Anthony Napolitan, Dane Searls, Paul Langlands, Jed Mildon and many more of Australia and New Zealands best action sports athletes.

The Unit BMX team hit the road earlier this year, travelling don the East coast of Australia to Cam White’s Hillside Dirtjam. Ryan Guettler, Dane Searls, Jed Mildon, Cam Pianta, Nick Richardson and David Girsch were joined by special guests Anthony Napolitan and Colin Mackay.
We were there to film all the fun times, a few highlights include the countless hours of didgeridoo and band practice on the road, Richo’s appearance on Bondi Rescue, Girsch sessioning some street spots in Sydney, and the resulting boxing matches from spending all week together in a campervan.

On 28 May 2011 Unit BMX rider Jed Mildon attempted and successfully landed the first-ever Triple Backflip on a bike in his hometown of Taupo, New Zealand. In just three days the videos of Jed’s incredible achievement have reached almost 4 million views online, cementing his name into action-sports folklore.
This new video takes you behind the scenes of the whole project to give you an idea of the commitment it’s taken Jed to accomplish the Triple Backflip. Jed might’ve made the final successful jump look easy, but what it has taken him to reach that point is far from it. NZ rider Jake Prebble joins Jed at the main event, and throws down some massive front flip tricks as well.
