    old photo..... new question

    I know this pic has nothing to do with f/r or dh but I saw this pic on ridemonkey about a year and a half ago so there is my justification for adding it to this section. Anyway, I just recently came across it again and wondered what was the outcome for this guy after he ate asphalt. Anyone know?

    It's most likely photoshopped. You would have to be a complete idiot to try that jump, to asphalt, on a bike with no suspension. Besides, that guy would probably be dead right now, if he landed in the same position as he is in the air. What most likely happend is he jumped into a foam pit like that and photoshopped himself onto the existing picture.

    Thanks Senor!

    Now that I have my question answered I can sit back in disbelief because I always thought this guy would have been trucked off to a hospital with serious injuries. I never thought he would have stood up and just walked away

    I agree with you on this but he fact that he is traveling at such a high rate of speed combined with the height of his jump and the fact that he is off balance in the air with zero safety gear while flying over asphalt leaves me speechless to the outcome of this jump.

    He must have some superhuman-cat skills.... and a little luck to have rolled out of this one with out injury

    that picture was taken with a wide angle / fisheye lens. That makes it look quite a bit higher than in actually was. Look at the video and compare. Still pretty impressive/lucky.

    Photos don't always tell the whole story. You watch the video and he was actually fairly controlled while bailing, WAY better than any of mine.

    And you are so much better on your rigid single speed 29er running a 32-16 cause you're so strong, huh?
