Daredevil motorcyclists rode their way into the record books last night after a team of 18 dirt bike riders simultaneously back-flipped through the air during an action-packed stunt show at London's O2 Arena.

The Nitro Circus team performed the nail-biting stunts with just inches between them, jumping a whopping 75ft (23 metres) gap and leaping 40ft (12m) in the air - the equivalent of three London buses.
