Cam Zink Completes Biggest Backflip in Mountain Biking History, Gets 3rd Place

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffOctober 16, 2013

Cam Zink completed the biggest free-ride backflip in mountain biking history at the Oakley Icon Sender competition at Red Bull Rampage

The 78-foot jump is absolutely incredible to watch, yet the judges didn't feel Zink deserved anything higher than a third-place finish at the event.

He did come away with the Best Trick award, though.

Thanks to The Big Lead for the video and USA Today's FTW for the GIF.
