Continuing their wild ways, Red Bull's organized two acts of insanity for New Year's Eve: Rhys Millen will attempt at the world's first successful backflip in a truck (a botched practice session left him with a broken back, but he's since recovered), and Robbie Maddison will leap over 100 feet onto the Arc de Triomphe at Paris Las Vegas before he-- in the words of one Red Bull exec-- "grabs a ton of brake." To see a close call of Maddo's practice session, check out this YouTube clip.
90 minutes of Red Bull's New Year. No Limits. madness begins tonight (New Year's Eve) on ESPN at 8:00 PM Pacific / 11:00 PM Eastern, right after the Chick-fil-a Bowl.
