This past weekend on August 13th, 2016, G-Form athlete Kevin Robinson set a world record for the furthest in-air power-assisted BMX backflip. This stunt involved traveling at speeds of nearly 45 MPH and launching himself just under 100 feet high in the air. Kevin was able to break this world record at a distance of 84 feet, which aired LIVE on ESPN.
Born and raised in Rhode Island, Kevin had been dreaming of this event for years and was happy to achieve his goal with friends and family by his side. He hosted the jump in his (and our) home city of Providence, Rhode Island and was a spectacle not to be missed!
