Landing a backflip is a dream of many young mountain bikers. Very few of those riders go on to landing a double backflip. But a quadruple? That’s just nuts.

Or it’s just the natural progression of the sport when you’re as dedicated as Christian Arehart. Following Jed Mildon’s quad flip on a BMX bike in 2015, Christian just became the first person to land a quad flip on a mountain bike. The jump went down at Mid America Outdoors after Christian drove his own ramp cross-country to take on the challenge.

After dialing it in on the airbags, Christian landed the quad flip to the massive resi landing. Clearly a quad flip is possible. Will we see more in the future?

This kind of stuff is like flat screen TVs. In 5 years 7 year olds will be doing quadruple back flips like it’s nothing. I’m glad I was a young snowboarder many years ago. Back then if you jumped onto a 2’ tall funbox and did a board slide you may have gotten pro contract LOL.

What does humanity benefit from this stunt?

Humanity and all of its remnants will completely disappear from the universe at some juncture. Your legacy in most cases will cease to exist within 1-2 generations after your life ends. It’s better to just enjoy the ride while you’re awake since none of it actually matters.
