Backflips are anyway difficult to do. Add to that a moterbike and a huge river, and you’ve got yourself a near-impossible task. But not for American stunt rider Travis Pastrana, who just set a world record with an astonishing backflip between two barges of London’ river Thames. Sure, he made it look like it was no big deal as he cleared a gap of 75ft, but that just means you’ll be left gaping as you watch him do it, on repeat.
A video of the flip was shared on social media, and since then it has been creating waves in the online space.
