I'm not saaying I could have done it but with probably 10" of travel front and rear it's not exactly difficult. The consequences of an off though are pretty bloody terrifying!! But that seems to be the result of advances in technology in sport, looka t what happened when cars got aero when they crashed it was twice as bad!

Nice run, looks good down there! Although as said above a crash onto into concrete, doesnt matter how much body armour you have is still going to hurt!

Probably been running 8 inchs of travel, only a couple of DH world cup bikes doing over that for travel!

see i reckon i could , might get through a new set of pads and do it at a quarter of the speed but i reckon i would get down.

I also got a bit bored.

this on the other hand ( which i know has been posted before ) is something else entirely and i would surely die if i attempted it.

Amazing stuff - I think Red Bull ran a series of these runs last year in various South American cities.
