CJ Carter, AKA "Diavolo" was a freeriding pioneer who built one of the world's first loop de loops back in 1904. Matt wants to channel his inner Diavolo and turn his biggest, most fantastical dream into a reality - to build the biggest loop de loop the world has seen and then, gasp, to ride it! To turn this vision into a reality, Matt needs your help. Invest in Matt's project and have your name, your brand, your logo stamped on a piece of history!The Project
