Dawid Godziek has landed the World's first quadruple tailwhip at the Audi Nines jam in Germany.
Godziek said: “I landed the triple whip pretty easy, so I decided to try for one more. I hadn’t been thinking about this trick at all, but the jump here at Audi Nines turned out to be the perfect jump for it. It’s huge and there’s a lot of airtime to do it.”
“The special thing about this event is that we don’t have any pressure to put our run together in three or five tries,” said Godziek. “We have a few days to do our best, which is really cool.”
Dawid, brother of Szymon, is a BMXer by trade but is riding the event on a hardtail mtb. He landed the trick off a five metre moto kicker to dirt. He does slip a pedal on the landing but he keeps it rubber side down and that's surely enough to earn his place in the history books. It's the first time the trick has been done on an mtb but it was done on a BMX to dirt for the first time only six years ago by none other than Nicholi Rogatkin.
The Audi Nines MTB is an invite-only media event and contest for professional mountain bikers, held this year for the first time in a stone quarry in the Hunsrück mountains of Germany’s Rhineland-Palatinate region. Supported by Bikepark Idarkopf, the event has attracted some of the world’s top mountain bikers to this spectacular venue to participate in an innovative video contest, which gives riders one week to land their best tricks and runs in front of running cameras. In addition to the Big Air jump that Godziek landed this trick on, the venue also features freeride and slopestyle mountain bike lines with huge drops, jumps and other special features.
The event continues this week and we're expecting some banging clips to come out of the other end next week.
