Daredevil backflips bike between barges on the Thames

Daredevil Travis Pastrana backflipped his motorbike across a 75-foot wide gap between two barges on the River Thames. He only had 150 feet to accelerate and after hitting the lander he only had 36 feet to stop.

Pastrana also had to contend with the choppy water of the Thames that made his landing ramp a moving target, not to mention high winds that buffeted him in midair, threatening to send him flying off course and miss the 27 foot wide landing barge altogether.
