Will Todd Meyn Be the Next to Stick the Nothing Front Bike Flip?
R-Willy landed the World First nothing front bike flip in 2015. When he sent it at the Nitro World Games last year on his way to winning the BMX Best Tricks Event, it was one of the more memorable moments of the night. Though it’s been almost two years since the first one, it’s not a trick you see every day, because it’s incredibly difficult. Just to recap: The nothing front bike flip is where the rider frontflips the bike in mid air without being on it — so they float there behind the bike until it comes back around. It’s a beautiful, gravity-defying move when it’s done well. When it’s not it looks like a weightless yard sale. But now Todd Meyn has his eyes on sticking the elusive trick. He’s been killing it on the New Zealand tour and is already having an epic year, so don’t be surprised if we see a nothing front bike flip from him soon. Plus, he can find no better teacher for this. Here’s what an R-Willy master class looks like in real life:
