    Downhill jump further than YOU!!

    this was just posted in racer-x's racerhead #33 ,but think what you want about this kid ,THIS is just plain and simply awesome.what's next,smaller pool,less water,jacuzzi with babes?
    i have personally scoffed at some of the fluff coming these days,but this makes me want to get some baby oil and try 300 feet!

    It's been discovered/discussed in multiple other places that that video is fake. It was originally supposed to be for some Microsoft advertisement only to be viewed in Deutschland (Germany.) But...This being the internet, of course it went viral and worldwide. But yeah...to the point, Microsoft+Software+Computer Generated Images (CGI)= Sweet FAKE stunts.

    Plus, for some more fun, many downhill mtb'ers have some knowledge of physics which we apply to jumps. If you do the math for that stunt, he would not have gained enough speed to go as far as he did and also the speed he would have had to have had to go that far would be way too fast for him to land in that tiny amount of water w/o injuries.

    Saw this last night (same link chumba posted). Pretty funny and cool even for a fake. Makes you wonder about all the other videos out there though....

    SHHhhhhhh. I photoshop out the training wheels in all my vids, and speed them up 20, no, 50%!

    That vid is pretty realistic-looking and makes us all look like sissies, so I don't like it.

    Would have been more believable if he just jumped it into a lake or something. The idea still does have some potential.

    Sorry, I should have clarified that I was being facetious.
