The world’s best Freestyle Trials rider Jack Field has defied the laws of gravity and done what no human has done before, a backflip 297.3 metres high on the roof of Eureka Tower in Melbourne.

Field put on the spectacular show to promote Australia’s greatest action sports event the Monster Energy AUS-X Open, which for the first time ever will take place within Marvel Stadium on November 30.

“I’ve done some pretty insane things in my life, but this certainly takes the cake in terms of nuts!” Field, the former world Number 1 Freestyle Trials Champion exclaimed.

“When the guys running the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Melbourne called me up with the idea I thought, well we’re always trying to push the boundaries of what’s possible on a motorbike and this is right up there!”


Dan Reardon, 5-time Australian Supercross Champion and competitor in each of the AUS-X Open events since the event’s inception in 2015, said the stunt was a true representation of what to expect on November 30 at Marvel Stadium.

“That was crazy to see a bike backflipping nearly 300 meters on top of this awesome building in the heart of Melbourne,” Reardon said.

“This stunt perfectly depicts what the Monster Energy AUS-X Open is all about, high energy, jaw dropping moments and the most insane action on dirtbikes you’ll ever see.”

“If you haven’t got tickets to Marvel Stadium on November 30, get onto Ticketmaster now and lock it in. You won’t want to miss this!”
