Fathers, adventurers, amateurs — do not try this at home.
Robbie Maddison is not your average 40-year-old father of two. The FMX X-Gamer and daredevil stunt performer is all about taking his sport to the extreme.
His latest stunt? Skydiving while strapped onto a Razor MX650 dirtbike. Dirtbike skydiving may be a new sport on the horizon — although Maddison is the only one crazy enough to try it so far.
Maddison completed a quintuple backflip 5,000 feet in the air, and a whole lotta other cool tricks.
Maddison is a multi-time motocross champion, 2004 X Games champion (with 13 backflips to his name in that competition), and has broken numerous Guinness World Records. He’s also set crazy records on modified dirtbikes on water and snow.
He has successfully jumped big distance gap landmarks like the Tower Bridge in London, the Corinth Canal in Greece, the start gantry at the Formula One in Melbourne, and the Arc de Triomphe in front of the Paris Las Vegas Hotel in Nevada.
Filmed in Los Angeles, CA, July 2021.
