A record was set at the bikepalooza Red Bull Rampage earlier this week. Cameron Zink, 27, landed a 78-foot backflip in the desert outside of Virgin, Utah, making it the biggest freeride mountain-bike step-down backflip on record. Zink was awarded the Best Trick Award, placing third in the overall competition.
