World’s first- backflip to manual to frontflip

Another mtb first

We love how progressive the slopestyle scene is at the moment. This World first, for example, was published in November, the heart of the off-season. Use it as some handy winter motivation to go out and push your riding.

Here’s what we said at the time:

Adrian Tell has posted this backflip – manual – frontflip on Youtube and is claiming it’s a World’s First. It was filmed in Sweden’s Alfta bike park in the run up to the 2016 SlopeFest, which was unfortunately cancelled this year. Still at least Tell had something to go home smiling about as he writes his name in the history books with this trick.

Tell said: “The world’s first step-up backflip to manual to frontflip drop! So stoked I pulled this one!”


We’ve just caught this video on Adrian’s Facebook. Has he managed to pull two world’s firsts on the same jump?
