Evel Knievel never did it, but on July 23, in the final round of the freestyle motocross event at the Gravity games in Providence, Carey hart, 25, completed the first motorcycle backflip in competition. "That was the first time I ever attempted the flip," says Hart, who had practiced the maneuver on a BMX bike. "I was nervous and tense leading up to the jump, but when I went up in the air, I didn't think of anything. Then I hit the landing, jumped off my bike and got mobbed." Nevertheless, Hart finished 10th out 10 finalists: He used his entire two minutes of stunt time revving up for his finale.
