It was an adrenalin-packed evening of entertainment at London's O2 last night, as crowds saw a new Guinness World Records title set by the daredevil riders from Team Nitro - 16 of them completed backflips simultaneously on their motocross bikes.

The international team, including riders from Europe, New Zealand, and the USA, took to the air in style, perfectly executing their backflips while just inches away from those either side of them.

The event was streamed to over 500 cinemas across Europe, with fans sitting on the edge of their seats as they watched the action unfold live.

Team Nitro front-man and action sports legend, Travis Pastrana, gave a history of the motorcycle backflip immediately before the record attempt, giving some detail on the stunt about to take place. Pastrana is no stranger to world records, holding multiple Guinness World Records titles himself, including the first person to land a double backflip on a motorcycle.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Ben Backhouse said upon presenting the team with their certificate, "It's been an Officially Amazing evening here at the O2. We've seen some incredible motorcycle stunts and what a better way to finish the evening with a brand new Guinness World Records title."
