First Ever Double Backflip on Snowmobile | VIDEO

Daniel Bodin writes history by landing world’s first double backflip on a snowmobile. Watch it here.

It may not be moto, but it’s damn impressive: Freestyle snowmobile rider lands historic first double backflip in Sweden.

Daniel Bodin has beaten his freestyle rivals Colten Moore and Heath Frisby to the first successful double backflip in history on his custom-built snowmobile. The swashbuckling Swede was in a race against time to outdo the Americans’ attempts, which are due to take place at the Winter X Games in Aspen at the end of January. After a series of test jumps, the 31-year-old gunned his snowmobile towards the kicker in a forest glade on his home snow of Malung and completed two full backflip rotations, managing to land his 450lb sled back down safely from 45 feet in the air.

Previous high-profile attempts at the elusive trick by Levi LaVallee at the 2009 Winter X Games and Justin Hoyer in the 2011 event both came up short, however Bodin has finally wrapped up the holy grail of tricks.
