Riders have been talking about and trying double-backflips for years, but Dave Mirra finally made it happen at Utopia in Raleigh, North Carolina on May 7th. The box jump at Utopia is six-feet tall and 14′ long, so this was definitely the place to get it done. Dave jumped the box backwards, went all the way to the top of the 20′ vert wall to get speed, and then let the double-flip fly. Dave had tried two other double-flips this weekend and came pretty close, and this one couldn’t have been any better. When he landed, Dave dodged a few people and then tried a flair on an eight-foot quarter. Mirra had just made history and everyone in the park went nuts. This happened during qualifying runs and two of the judges gave Dave perfect 100’s for this one-trick run, and that was well deserved.Dave skipped out on the finals, but no one will ever forget this run.¿Losey
