Remember last year when Rhys Millen managed to miss the landing pit during his truck backflip practice and break three vertebrae in his neck and compress and break two vertebrae in his back?
Well apparently his doctors have given him the go and heâ€™s going to give it another try this New Yearâ€™s Eve during the second annual Red Bull New Year No Limits event, and heâ€™s even posted a video of the crash to wet everyoneâ€™s appetite:
According to Rhys:
Last year we attempted what was before then thought impossible. Laws of physics and vehicle dynamics were pushed to the limits with success, but failure came in one small mis-calculation. My body can be broken but my mind cannot. This year, people will witness the first ramp to ramp back flip in an off-road truck – ever.
In addition to Rhysâ€™ record setting attempt, Robbie Maddison will also be breaking a record during the event as he attempts to jump over 100 feet into the air and land atop the replical Arc de Triomphe in front of Paris Las Vegas. Heâ€™ll then drop off the Arc and freefall for more than 50 feet to land on a massive landing ramp below.
I know Iâ€™ll be tuning in; will you?
