Robbie Maddison Backflips over Tower Bridge

Robbie “Maddo” Maddison does it again.
This time the 27 year old Australian daredevil performed a no-handed backflip over an open Tower Bridge in London, becoming the first rider in history to jump the bridge on a motorbike.
The Wizard of Oz as he’s also known, had an approach speed of approximately 40mph, taking off from the north side of the bridge, performed the no-handed backflip, and held his landing in front of the south tower.

Robbie Maddison:“The whole experience was awesome.
Since the jumps in Las Vegas I have been set on doing something special here in London so the Red Bull team and I have been secretly scoping out Tower Bridge for months.

We had a matter of minutes on the bridge and had to time everything to the second, there were so many factors to get right, but we pulled it off.
People say I’m crazy, but I just want to push the boundaries of my sport and my body to the limit and I love taking on these huge challenges.
It was an incredible feeling to fly between the two towers and over the Thames.
