Rider ‘destroys body’ landing world’s first MTB quad tailwhip

Dawid Godziek of Poland, a BMW rider by trade, pulled off the world’s first quadruple tailwhip on a mountain bike Wednesday at a mountain biking event in the Hunsrück mountains of Germany’s Rhineland-Palatinate region.

“I landed the triple whip pretty easy, so I decided to try for one more,” Godziek said, according to DirtMountainBike.com. “I hadn’t been thinking about this trick at all, but the jump here at Audi Nines turned out to be the perfect jump for it. It’s huge and there’s a lot of airtime to do it.”

It wasn’t revealed how many times he attempted the trick before landing it, but his comment in the Guardian Sport video suggests it was several. The second video below shows one of the wipeouts.

“It wasn’t easy, it was [a] really tough one,” he said in the Guardian Sport video. “And I feel destroyed, my body is destroyed but [it was] definitely worth it.”

The Audi Nines MTB is described as an invite-only media event and contest for professional mountain bikers and it was held in a stone quarry. The event included a video contest, which gives riders one week to land their best tricks and runs in front the the cameras.

“The special thing about this event is that we don’t have any pressure to put our run together in three or five tries,” said Godziek. “We have a few days to do our best, which is really cool.”

Even if it means destroying your body.
