Who is Caleb Wyatt?
Caleb Wyatt is the first person to ever perform a successful backflip on a large motorcycle. On April 25, 2002 at the Rogue Valley Motocross track, Caleb Wyatt executed the backflip. A photo of Caleb was taken by the RVMX track owner to document the event and can be seen on his website.
Caleb Wyatt's first successful backflip was performed over a mulch pile of grass clipping, leaves and bark which was originally intended for the maintenance of the RVMX track. Wyatt constructed a quarter pipe ramp with the take-off completely vertical shoved into the pile of mulch.
Caleb has since performed this Freestyle Motocross trick hundreds of times around the United States. On January 25, 2004, Caleb became the Moto X Best Trick Gold Metal winner during the 8th Winter X-Games when he bested the competition with a 90 foot gap no-hander backflip.
