Daniel Bodin achieves first double backflip in a snowmobile (Watch)

Daniel Bodin became the first person to successfully perform a double backflip on a snowmobile on Monday, January 23rd.

Considered the ‘holy grail’ of snowmobile tricks, multiple previous attempts at the feat had come up short in past years, most notably when Levi Lavallee tried it at the X-Games back in 2009.

But it was Bodin who became the first to truly land the move.

“It just can’t be described – nobody in this world can understand the feeling,” said the Swede.

“I’ve nurtured the dream about nailing this trick more than two years.”

A two-time gold-medallist at the X-Games, Bodin has confirmed that he won’t be attempting to replicate the trick as part at the upcoming games in Aspen starting this weekend.
