    You can’t even see if he landed the back flip! WEAK!!! Go see BikeRadar’s video made back on June 2010. A lot more tricks and stunts that were actually pulled off and at the end 4:18 you’ll actually see a back flip done on a road bike and he lands it!!! You can type in “Amazing stunt riding…on a carbon road bike” in YouTubes search bar.
