Red Bull athlete Kieran Reilly has reportedly become the first person ever to land a triple flair, a BMX trick incorporating three backflips with a half twist, something deemed impossible by the majority of the professional bicycle motocross world. 

The British rider finally landed the triple flair at Asylum Park in Nottinghamshire after 13 days and 20 previous attempts, with each failed effort taking a significant toll on Reilly's body. However, each effort also provided him with extra motivation to push the boundaries of tricks performed within the sport, and he eventually completed the insanely difficult stunt.
