Before long, Mildon was invited to be a part of the Nitro Circus World Tour. In this worldwide event, Mildon would ride in front of packed stadiums. It was amazing to see the progression in Mildon's riding now that he was a full-fledged pro. Everyone knew that there was something big in the works.
It was only a matter of time before Mildon would inevitably attempt the world's first quad backflip on a bike.
This idea had been sitting in Mildon's mind for many years. He had practiced this trick for months into foam before finally attempting it for real. There were some failed attempts looked pretty ugly, but Mildon was able to walk away from them, continuing toward his dream of BMX greatness. NBC offered a window into the world of this quad backflip attempt. The world waited while history unfolded. Mildon finally landed a textbook quality quad-backflip. This was an amazing feat that many thought might not even be possible.
For most rational human beings, landing a quad backflip on a bike would be enough. However, Mildon's overachieving nature pushed him to attempt the biggest dirt jump ever recorded on a BMX bike. 60-foot jumps are normally reserved for snowboarders, skiers, and motocross riders. However, Mildon shredded these dirt jumps and landed some of the biggest BMX tricks in the history of the sport.
