Watch Travis Pastrana's Incredible Dirt Bike Backflip from his POV
Travis Pastrana has conquered pretty much anything with wheels and a motor. He's got it covered from NASCAR racing to rally driving to taking on a track in a dirt bike. Now you can see what it looks like from his point of view thanks to this video filmed from a GoPro stuck to his helmet during a recent race. The Red Bull Straight Rhythm event was held recently in Pomona, California. Pastrana's appearance marked his first professional race in five years. He competed against Josh Hansen on a 500cc two-stroke during Round 16 in a best-two-out-of-three race. Hansen took the first drag race race so the pressure was really on for Pastrana in the second.

The POV video shot from his helmet during that second race is incredible. You can hear the crowd cheering as they duke it out for the win and see Hansen coming in and out of Pastran's view as they speed down the track. The height these guys get is just amazing, but you've really got to wait for the end when Pastrana pulls off a dizzying backflip.
Pastrana may have won this second race, but he did lose the third. That made it a win for Hansen but still a fine bit of showmanship from Pastrana.
