Mountain biker Cam Zink has made history. For this year's Red Bull Rampage on the Oakley Icon Sender in Utah, Zink pulled off the biggest freeride mountain bike step-down backflip on record, according to Red Bull.

Surprisingly, Zink received third place in the competition, but his incredible 78-foot jump still earned him the Best Trick Award and heaps of applause from the audience.
