Early this morning, Robbie Maddison performed a no-handed backflip between the two open sections of Tower Bridge spanning the Thames in London. Intended to promote the upcoming Battersea Power Station round of Red Bull X-Fighters, Maddison approached the gap at 40mph and, unlike his step up at the Vegas Arc d Triomphe, he stuck the landing without drama.

"People say I'm crazy, but I just want to push the boundaries of my
sport and my body to the limit and I love taking on these huge
challenges," said Maddison. "It was an incredible feeling to fly
between the two towers and over the Thames"
