Nitro Circus pushes the envelope off a cliff with first-ever BMX quad backflip

One flip too far?

You know the term "video game trick"? Well Nitro Circus are currently cooking up something that isn't even possible with a controller in your hands: The quad BMX backflip. And as if that weren't crazy enough already, this one, unlike Nitro Circus's previous showcase stunts, pits Jed Mildon and James Foster against each other in a nationally televised, Evel Knievel-esque suicide showdown to see who sticks it first.

This is a bad idea. Nothing anyone can say will change my mind about that. If you do want to watch, however—either out of morbid curiosity or for the sake of sheer progression—then tune in to NBC on Sunday, July 12 at 4:30 and prepare for the carnage.
