You might not rock with the Winter X Games, riding on snowmobiles, or any kind of physical activities, but trust and believe this is one of the coolest things you'll see. Red Bull recently posted video of Swedish snowmobiler Daniel Bodin finally cracking the code without cracking his back. Bodin f*cked around and became the first person to ever hit a double backflip while riding a snowmobile.
This took place in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. The trick spanned over a 230-foot area, and Bodin was reportedly thrown about 50 feet in the air to pull this off. Reports say that Bodin had been working on this particular trick for the last six months, which is wild considering ESPN has been hyping this particular trick ever since snowmobiling made its return to the Winter X Games in 2013. For many, this trick was considered the "holy grail" of snowmobiling.
In an interview with Red Bull after nailing the trick of the
year century, Bodin was obviously ecstatic. “What a feeling! I spent such a long time dreaming about this moment and waiting for it to finally happen. Flying is a unique sensation that is hard to describe. It was quite intimidating at the top, but straight after take-off I felt I had everything under control."
Let this be a lesson to those of you who think your dream is supposed to happen overnight. Slow and steady
wins the race nails the impossible trick, word to Daniel Bodin.
