Video: Rhys Millen fails to stick landing after truck backflip

We’re sure you’ve heard of famous drifter Rhys Millen’s New Year’s event in Las Vegas where he was attempting backflip a pickup truck. Well, New Year’s has come and gone and Millen is pretty disappointed – not because he was able to backflip a truck, but because he couldn’t stick the landing.

His speed and rotation were perfect, but a slightly off-balance landing prevented him from riding away clean.

“I guess I should be glass half full, but I”m a little bit glass half empty, purely because I”m a perfectionist,” Millen said. “And my ultimate goal was to not just pull off the rotation and manipulate the truck and do a backflip, but to drive away.”
