Indy Backflip 1 of 2, 1990
Mat(t) Hoffman attempts a backflip at the 1990 2-HIP King of vert at N'Orbit in Indianapolis. He crashed, but this was back before anyone pulled flips in contests.
You can kind of see me to the right on the deck (red hat, black shirt, camo shorts, red shoes) doing my duties as contest judge. On my right is Lew of Freestylin' magazine and on my left is Scott Towne of BMX Plus! That's Spike Jonze leaning in to take a picture of Hoffman. Also on deck: Ron Wilkerson, Pete Kearney, Steve Swope, Greg Neal...
