Not many riders have been able to perfect the bike flip. Warden explains why, "One of the best descriptions I've heard someone come up with is that the bike flip is like a controlled crash. And I couldn't agree more. So much is going on during a bike flip, and most of the time, they hardly ever feel the same." That didn't stop him from learning bike flips to tire taps.
