Rhys Millen to Attempt a Backflip in a Trophy Truck on New Years Eve


Red Bull rocks.  It’s great for energy, a great mixer if you spend a night out on the town and they seem to have a limitless amount of money to spend on special events.  From the Red Bull Flugtag to the Air Races to this; the Red Bull New Year No Limits showdown.

Rhys fractured 5 vertebrae last year attempting this stunt, but that’s not stopping him from trying it again.  He’s spent the last year figuring out what went wrong (and healing his spine), and he’s now confident that he can pull it off.  The stunt will be performed on New Years Eve in Las Vegas and shown live on ESPN, and in high def on ESPN HD, at 11:00 PM eastern time (8:00 PM pacific).  Robbie Maddison will also be attempting at a 96 foot vertical jump on his dirt bike, so it should make for an interesting New Years Eve, hopefully no one gets hurt this time!
