Mark Monea Lands The First Ever 360 Front Flip In Moto X (Video)

First, let me just start off by saying that this is nothing short of remarkable.  After seeing some of the nastiness that can result from an attempted trick on a dirt bike, Mark Monea deserves all the credit in the world for simply attempting a 360 front flip, let alone landing it.

However, I can’t help but question whether this actually qualifies as a front flip?  Not to take away from the difficulty and brilliance of Monea’s dangerous stunt, but it isn’t hard to see that the bike “flattens out and does all types of weird things,” as he stated himself.  A member of his crew even mentions during the clip that they call the trick a “carry on,” rather than a front flip.

With that being said, all I will say is that if this doesn’t actually qualify as a front flip, it may be a while before we do see someone land the first ever 360 front flip in freestyle Moto X.
