Backflip Mike

Backflip Mike

Mike Garvey, our resident Rock Nights host has been feeling a little out of the spotlight amongst his fellow colleagues. What with Mulls being the sports guy, Rog on Dancing With The Stars and Jim as the class clown.

Well New Zealand, introducing The Rock’s newest superstar. BACKFLIP MIKE – taking on New Zealand one backflip at a time!

Since hearing Nitro Circus are coming back to the country, Mike has been challenged by The Morning Rumble to learn how to backflip.

Keep this page locked and follow his journey as Mike gets the gear he needs, avoids breaking bones (we hope) and attempts to learn how to backflip a Motorbike
