News is blowing up in New Zealand now with Nitro Circus in town, with eyes on Jolene Van Vugt who is reportedly planning to land the first BMX double backflip by a women (on the Gigant-A-Ramp).

In the video from the article, Pastrana reports that there has only been 3 women in the world to ever backflip, I’m sure this was out of context, and in reference to the Gigant-A-Ramp, as I can name a dozen who can. reports, “Jolene Van Vugt would not talk to media ahead of the world record attempt. Organizers say she’s trying to remain focused and calm.”
