It did seem a bit odd that the record allowed you to fit skis etc to your bike? Surely, it should just be a std bike? (allow a paddle tyre that’s it) Other wise, whats to stop you just making effectively a jet ski?
Didn’t enjoy it as much as the last episode (which was excellent), mainly because Mythbusters did a very similar thing last year. Not sure how far they went, but it was pretty far, and without a paddle tyre!
Nitro Circus use the ‘grande cajones’ branch of science. the bigger your balls are, the higher/faster/stronger/longer you go.
I did like the way the developers of the hydrofoil just said “there’s too much going on here to work out how/if it will work” better just give it a go.
What I didn’t understand is why they didn’t trial it more in shallower water where the bike doesn’t sink down to 30 metres (maybe they did but it wasn’t shown). Surely this is more about technique than anything else?
I imagine he’s had a lot of these things to do over the past year and just didn’t have time.
