LUC ACKERMANN - Youngest to Backflip on a motorcycle

He is just 12 years old and is considered the greatest talent in the German Freestyle Motocross Sport: Luc Ackermann, the younger brother of the two-time German FMX Champion Hannes Ackermann (2007, 2008). At the Suzuki NIGHT of the JUMPs / FIM Freestyle MX World Championships in Cologne last Saturday the German Youngster set a new record with the "youngest to Backflip on a motorcycle"
October 9th, 19.40 European time: Luc Ackermann entered the Lanxess Arena Cologne on his „art’bike“. After testing everything two times, the young FMX pro heads his 85ccm KTM to the ramp. With a nearly perfect rotation, followed by a smooth landing on the dirt hill the 10.253 spectators freaked out and celebrated the Backflip record.
