Daniel Bodin lands world's first double backflip on a snowmobile

After many, many attempts by snowmobile riders around the world, Swedish rider Daniel Bodin finally stuck the landing on one of the hardest snowmobile tricks in history.

It was Bodin who became the first to truly land the move. The 31-year-old was keen to complete the feat this month as his rivals are due to attempt the same challenge at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo.at the end of January. (A snowmobile weighs over 450 pounds, by the way.) However, when you watch Bodin's friends stream out of the building, screaming and yelling and raising their arms in triumph, it all clicks. "Now I'm looking forward to X Games and a chance to ride the Freestyle and Best Trick competitions with an easy mind".

Bodin has already won three gold medals in the freestyle and best trick categories at the X Games in previous years.

Now, Bodin has snatched the coveted honor of being the first person to land the trick from his American rivals just two days before Winter X Games is set to begin.

Boding celebrating his monumental achievement.
