Another UTV Pilot Chasing the Backflip + Video
Over a decade ago, the backflip was considered the holy grail of freestyle motocross competition. Fast forward to today, and a handful of daring UTV pilots are bringing the feat to four wheels. We’ve seen the trick attempted by a number of drivers, but no one really has it mastered. This most recent video is from a driver named Jonas Hedberg, who appears to be working on the flip into a foam pit with X Games Snowmobile sensation Daniel Bodin. We’re betting we’ll see the trick taken to dirt very soon.

Though short lived, the opportunity immersed him in the industry and is now a well-established off-road writer.
