Cam Zink has been riding since he was 9 years old and continues to push the limit, as the sport continues to evolve. Now Cam is really going to take it to the next level by attempting something nobody ever has before.

With the support of Mammoth Mountain, Monster Energy and the World of XGames, Cam is going to attempt to break a Guinness World Record with the #MammothFlip, the longest dirt-to-dirt backflip on a mountain bike.

Join us August 21st at Mammoth Mountain to witness this event in person at Canyon Lodge, otherwise tune into ESPN from 5-8 PM to watch live.

 There needs to be some sort of bike trophy created to honor what Zink has given us. A bike Heisman trophy of sorts...He is the man, that is setting the mold for decades to come.

 It'll just be a giant gold ball sack. There's really no other way to represent the insanity he's consistently put out over the years.

 "My name is Cameron Zink. And I ride mountain bikes." - HA! Understatement of the year

 Didnt Lacondeguy flip a 25m jump at Vinks' loosefest last weekend? Thats 82.5 feet.
Either way its mind blowing that dudes are going this big on a mtb
  • + 4
 Yup.
  • + 3
 probably happened after they filmed this short edit.
  • + 1
 Yes but Zink plans on flipping 100-115 ft. Mammoth built the landing now, the landing is even taller than that take off. so sick man I can't wait
  • + 22
 I hope they're taking his nuts into account when they're calculating his air resistance. Watermelons aren't very aerodynamic.
  • + 4
 I'm sure that app on the iphone they were using to measure the slope of the take off will take that into account.

 Anyone else notice at about 1:33 he's running one stanchion with Blackgold and the other just a standard BoXXer stanchion. Any reason behind this?
  • + 7
 at the begining of it he had 2 black stantions.
  • + 20

 I was riding with him in mammoth a few weeks ago and he had two black stanchions.
  • + 25
 Let's face it this guy ^ just wanted to tell everybody he has ridden with zink
  • + 0

  • + 3
 Maybe he bent or dented one flying through the air and landing at 120 feet
  • + 3
 "I was riding with him in mammoth a few weeks ago and he had two black stanchions." Then Brandon Semenuk and I had beers and he gave me his helmet. and My dad just so happens to be L. Ron Hubbard.

 Good to see he's practicing with air bags until he has everything dialled (unlike Rampage where he hit the drop just once the night before). For once I don't feel scared for him!
  • + 6
 Scary insane, but if anyone can do it it's Zink.
  • + 26

 Cam just seems like one of the nicest riders out there. Full of humility for a man who does what he does. Huge respect for him, and hope this one ends well for him.

 LIve coverage is awesome, but 3hrs of television for one flip? Yeah, I'll wait for the 0:30 highlight clip.
