Robbie Maddison Goes 374 Feet Out, 185 Feet Down On Olympic Ski Jump

Welp, more insane motorsports porn to finish out the week here on Tetongravity.com. Modern-day Evel Kneviel Robbie "Maddo" Maddison rips his dirt bike up the Olympic bobsled track at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, Utah, then promptly rallies to the top of the olympic ski jumping complex, drops in, pins it up to 71 mph, and then boosts into space–touching back down to Earth 374 feet farther out, and 185 farther down, from where he left the ground. This might be the first time anyone on two wheels has legally qualified as a Low Earth Orbit Object. Wild.  

It's very unlikely you missed it, but if you did, you should also check out the 4X4 "mountain bike" video we posted earlier this week, which has since gained an astonishing 1,124,735 pageviews.

Now lets see it Bond Style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpBWIr4EWb8
