The pilot stated that the flight was in preparation for a biennial flight review. The approach and landing at the intended airport was uneventful. While on the landing roll, at taxi speed, with all three wheels on the ground, a strong crosswind gust, which exceeded rudder authority, started the airplane to ground loop. The pilot applied the brakes resulting in the airplane flipping over on the runway incurring substantial damage to the fuselage, wings, and empennage sections. The pilot stated the winds were variable from 030 to 300 degrees gusting from 12 knots to 22 knots, and there were no mechanical failures or malfunctions of the airplane or any of its systems prior to the accident.
