Probably more fun than dangerous, but good distance nonetheless.

Nope, 2002 camp lincoln, NY. 50mph on a foes dhs mono with marzocchi shivers off a ramp built by carpentry students still stands. About 30% longer & same height but tripple the speed.. rookie mistake was wearing a helmet (AKA water brake) sorry put the call out for the footage but none back yet. we had 3 cameras rolling & rescue canoes so you'll just have to trust me ..

Biggest or highest or longest to me is not the point of this video, I see abunch of guys having FUN in a bike. I did a Little of this 30 years ago and I can tell you, this guys have tremendous control to be able to fly that high and that fast and have such good landings. Forget about the records, go out and enjoy your bike and your friends. Cheers

sorry i cant make it go blue I'm not good with the google machine
its the one that says ''Freeride Mountain biking in BC'' it has a plywood ramp with a black carpet on the ramp and its in the woods

Colin Winkleman used to have the record at 116 feet, but he was on a midschool bmx that weighs as much as if not more than DH bikes do now.
(Aug 9, 2013 at 10:37)
I don't know if I missed something, but the guys going for 150' didn't get there from what I could see. I hope they do. They're the only ones that have bothered to do it properly. Tow-ins are lame & stupid. Who the f*ck cares if you need a moto to pull you in. Then there's no point. Still, Colin Winkelmann's 116'er was the gnarliest distance jump ever done. I don't think anyone on an FMB has come close to the ramp to ramp distance that Winkelmann had with his & he was on a BMX. It's a shame that FMBs are so far behind when it comes to this. MXs are on their way to 500' & BMX had a record in 2000 that still rivals MBs record now. Pathetic. Mike Montgomery had some big plans. I hope he's still gonna go for it. These dirt farm guys deserve huge cred for their vision, abolish tow-ins.
Racefit, don't trust you. Talk is cheap. Put up the proof or don't waste your time.

They should just find a really steep mountain with no jumps or turns and go straight down it with a big a$$ jump at the bottom. Any way that you could reach maximim velocity, but no tow ins thats p*$$y s$!t. The suspension would have to be either really really stiff (as in if you push down on the forks with all your weight but they don't budge) or you only have 130mm-160mm also very stiff. The tires would have to be smooth ass a baby a$$. It would be a very light bike like a Santa Cruz v10 which i think is only 30Ibs im not sure. The trail down the mountain would have to be as smooth as possible and you cant touch the brakes at all.And an extremly skilled rider. He/she can NOT do any tricks while in mid air, that would slow you down by quite a bit. The spacing between the end if the trail and the jump can only be 15-30 feet the closer the better. and most important is that you are not trying for height your going for distance, so make the ramp at a shallow angle so it will just launch you. Now i would gladly do it but i'm affrade i dont have the money, bike, place to do it or balls big enough. So one of you guys should do it.
TEACH THOSE LITTLE BMX F^@KERS HOW WE DO IT.

...has to be one of the biggest jumps off all-time. not "natural terrain, but neither are the ramps at RAMPage.
(Aug 9, 2013 at 16:00)
good video it looks big and the landing looked so sketchy
(Aug 9, 2013 at 16:03)
Not sure how being towed in by a motorcycle is lame or stupid, it's cheaper than building a giant roll in like they do in the x-games. It's the same idea when Hoffman built his megaramp(on his own budget, mind you, there was no money from sponsors then) back in the early 90's.

I love it when the videos are on the youtube player because I can go on a video adventure
(Aug 17, 2013 at 15:58)

Back in 1994 Oliver Grossmann did a bigger jump over a ferry...http://www.olivergrossmann.com/sports/mountainbike/
(Aug 8, 2013 at 19:26)
He's in the air for so long lol
(Aug 8, 2013 at 19:30)
WTF!! is he doing
(Aug 8, 2013 at 19:33)
Boat launch???? No sir, this is a bike launch.
(Aug 8, 2013 at 20:21)
I would've been more impressed if he would have held on to the bike, until he hit the water!
(Aug 9, 2013 at 2:52)
hmm i think you will hit the bike hard.. since you are heavier than the bike.. you will dive deeper.. than the bike..
(Aug 9, 2013 at 10:18)
... justa double-arm rolling down the windows. pretty stylie. pretty big!
(Aug 9, 2013 at 5:51)
Reminds of me Zink hitting the canyon gap last year, but way less hectic since it's water haha
(Aug 10, 2013 at 5:16)
Jason Rennies 133.6ft jump:
IIRC he's a stuntman and did this on stock Kona.
(Aug 11, 2013 at 22:06)

(Aug 8, 2013 at 23:48)

(Aug 9, 2013 at 4:45)
For those that get the progam - We'll be seeing this on Tosh.0 I'm sure.
(Aug 9, 2013 at 6:09)
That was awesome. I gotta try this.
(Aug 8, 2013 at 19:19)
Why did he let go???
(Aug 8, 2013 at 19:43)
cause it`s so f!cking huge!!!
(Aug 8, 2013 at 20:41)
But my girlfriend didn't let go.
(Aug 8, 2013 at 22:41)
Last thing you want to do is land on your bike in the water going that big. Might as well be concrete.
(Aug 9, 2013 at 3:02)
Like the footage.
(Aug 8, 2013 at 18:51)
(Aug 8, 2013 at 19:00)
After a complete scan of the internet I stand corrected.
(Aug 8, 2013 at 19:44)
I think this one is almost as big
