Together with the Golden Gate Bridge, the London Tower Bridge Open link in a new window is probably the most recognized bridge in the world. Challenge enough for Australian free styler Robbie Maddison Open link in a new window to jump the 19th century bridge on his motorcycle.

Ride Bumps Smiley Before the rush hour commute had started on Monday morning in London, Robbie jumped the bridge, using the bridge in open position as takeoff and landing ramp (like in the movies).

It wasn't enough to just jump, he did a back-flip with no hands....

Maddison said: "The whole experience was awesome. Since the jumps in Las Vegas I've been set on doing something special here in London so the Red Bull team and I have been secretly scoping out Tower Bridge for months. We had a matter of minutes on the bridge and had to time everything to the second, there were so many factors to get right, but we pulled it off. People say I'm crazy, but I just want to push the boundaries of my sport and my body to the limit and I love taking on these huge challenges. It was an incredible feeling to fly between the two towers and over the Thames."

Whatever you may think about X-Fighters, it takes guts and balls of steel to perform a stunt like this...
