Victorian Freestyle Motocross (FMX) inspiration Cam Sinclair has successfully landed the very trick that almost cost him his life nine months ago; the double backflip.
Sinclairâs return to FMX has been arguably one of the most inspirational comeback stories in Australian motorsports. Whilst competing in Madrid, Spain last July, Sinclair under rotated a double backflip suffering multiple broken bones, head and internal injuries.
Doctors believed at best, Sinclair could return to riding a full year following his accident; however this only fueled the 26 year oldsâ desire to make a full recovery. Exactly 282 days later, whilst performing a part of the Crusty Demons âBeyond the Apocalypseâ Tour in Darwin, Sinclair achieved his goal and successfully landed one of the most dangerous stunts in sport. (see video below)
âIts just such a huge relief to land the double backflip again and leave Darwin in one piece. Iâve been working so hard to prove to myself that this was possible. This is a feeling I will never forget.â Cam Sinclair said.
Now, with the huge weight of landing his 27th double backflip off his shoulders Sinclair feels ready to focus on his ultimate dream, of obtaining an X Games medal.
âThe ultimate goal for me is to take the double flip to the X Games in LA this July. I have a few other tricks up my sleeve, I know if I can stay healthy and keep improving I can win a medal.â Sinclair said.
Next up for Sinclair will be performances to sell out crowds in the âNitro Circus Liveâ Tour which kicks off in Brisbane on May 7.
