Daredevil motorcyclists Nitro Circus have back-flipped their way into the world record books, after leaping 40ft (12 metres) in the air - the equivalent of three London buses. A team of 18 dirt bike riders set a new world record for the most motorbikes back-flipping in the air simultaneously during an action-packed stunt show at London's O2 Arena. Officials from Guinness World Records confirmed 16 of the bikers were airborne simultaneously as they performed the back-flips, jumping a staggering 75ft (23 metres) and setting a new record. One of the riders, 28-year-old Chris Birch from Cambridge said: I'm totally stoked and happy for everyone involved. We know it's a dangerous sport but we do it because love it and we have so much fun riding our bikes. As long as that continues I'll continue to do stuff like this. I got a little buzz tonight. You do get nervous, it's natural. You try not to think negatively because if do you that then chances are something will go wrong.
