Mike Metzger was born November 19, 1975 in Huntington Beach, California and is a Freestyle Motocross (FMX) rider. In the 2002 X-Games he won the Freestyle and Big Air events and got second place in Step Up, earning him an estimated $100,000 in three days. In 2003 he also got first place in Big Air. On May 4, 2006, at 9:26, Metzger completed "The Impossible Jump", doing a world record backflip over the fountains in front of Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, seen live on ESPN. He is the first person to complete a backflip over the fountains, and only the second person to ever successfully land that jump. The others to attempt the jump over Caesars Palace's fountains include Evel Knievel, Gary Wells, and Robbie Knievel, of which only Robbie landed successfully. Not only did Metzger complete this jump whilst performing a backflip, but he also set the record for distance, landing 125 feet from the takeoff ramp. Metzger is commonly known as "The Godfather of Freestyle Motocross" and was one of the first riders to begin doing basic tricks such as heel clickers and can cans. Mike is also known for craziness that has sometimes rivaled that of Travis Pastrana. A good example is the method by which Metzger learned backflips; he simply set up a FMX ramp (metal takeoff) to point at a sand dune, then started trying to flip the 50 foot gap. He crashed 5 times before sticking it on the 6th. In FMX today, riders generally learn inverted tricks like the flip by jumping into foam pits, giant bins filled with packing foam. Metzger's method was much less safe, but much more memorable.

Invented McMetz, a trick in which the rider puts both feet over the handlebars in midair, then sweeps them backward towards his arms, takes his hands off the bars to allow the legs by, then remounts the bike after floating detached from it for a split second.

Metzger was the first to make a Back-To-Back Backflip in in the 2002 X-Games.
