    Gotta love Robbie Maddison’s stuff! Changed bikes halfway through though – pussy.

    Wonder what distance he got? Was certainly in the proper landing area

    His Vegas jump up and down from a few years back is still his maddest IMO

    Maddison, 33, launched going 71 mph, dropped 18 1/2 stories (or 185 feet, said to be a world record), and jumped a total length of 374 feet.

    Same magic tyres that Tom Cruise had in mission impossible. Slicks to knobblies whilst riding along!

    Hell’s teeth, that bloke’s a proper hooligan. And the bike looks like it could drink all your beer and get your daughter pregnant.

    His explanation for the hard landing was great. He said he got distracted as he went off thinking about what he was going to eat that night and blipped the throttle. He wasn’t meant to blip… So he overshot the landing spot.

    Just for comparison the record on skis is 825ft.

    How is the distance measured? if in the same way as the bike jump they’d be landing on the up slope. or are there bigger ski jumps (that one looks pretty big) (I know very little about skiing as you may have guessed 😉 )
