RedBull Trophy Truck Backflip ( Crash )

I have been watching this post about this for awhile. The guys from Redbull are gonna try to pull off the backflip in the trophy Truck.. Here is a teaser video.. You can see at the end that they have already been messing with it...




Bad News... He crashed hard !!! Here is what I found on Pirate and another forum..The latest.... http://www.race-dezert.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37674

Cliff notes: On his fourth attempt of the day, after three successful backflips into the carboard boxes, the "kicker" part failed to drop and launched him straight up and over the boxes. He stayed in a vertical position the whole time and landed on the tailgate. Helmet hit the cage and compression fractured three vertabrae in his neck and broke two in his back. No word on spinal cord injury, but it sounds like he got away with it without any permanent nerve damage.

I hope he gets through without too much damage.

I think even Evel Knivel would have shaken his head at that stunt.
