A suburban might not be as good as a truck, but it comes damn close with 8 people in it

To practice you set up a ramp with a water landing. Kinda like jumping your bmx bike into your nieghbors pool. I never could get the full rotation down though so I never moved on to trying it on the ground. I wonder how much he pays for medical insurance? Didn't pastrana do a flip like 2 yrs. ago?

Check out the next issue of MXMachine magazine a strictly FREESTYLE moto mag. Metz has a personal column to unleash and "how to". They have insane morphs of the flip before the gravity games in the next issue plus some stuff on "Paradise" (his house). I guess the GODFATHER is alive and well. When you have 5 acres to play on, and ramps everywhere, you destined to make the GOLD! Rock on Mike.

There are a few people doing it now. I think he's the first to do in a competition. In fact, the back-flip isn't even good enough now. They are already doing variations of
it. One handed, no footers etc.......

I not sure if its true but I heard that they aired the gravity games back east (pay per view maybe?) and pastrana did about 7 backflips and a nothing backflip. Dont know but heard it from a friend who's cousin was in of few off the older crusty vids? anybody else hear anything like this?

Metz landed a no-footed backflip tonight in the big air indoor portion. It was pretty sick he scored a 95 and I think he won. I think that pastrana was one of the commentators and nothing was said about a previous backflip in a comp. They showed his backyard and his jump area and him practicing. Looked like a painful road to completion in a comp.
