 That was almost Ramp Van levels of crashing; the guy in that video destroyed both his legs and never walked again.

 No worries, kid. There's an airbag.

 HIs name is Tyler Roberts and based on his instagram he's still riding.

 Good that the guy in this video is fine; I was talking about Colin Winkelmann, who destroyed his legs in a similar fall.
  • 4 0
 Colin was just starting to ride again but committed suicide from a break up or something like that, he had almost fully recovered.

 remember jake brown, he did the same thing as kid in begining, only on plywood. and i love how travis solved tp 7 problem by adding one more backflip

 with all due respects to the vegas trifecta (drunk tank inevitably being the third), id rather hang out at pastranaland then have either. not ride, not moto, just hang out and watch the gongshow unfold.
my concept of entertainment and doing cool shit has never been the same since travis came upon the scene. so cheers for that, and thanks for putting up this video.
sincerely,
mediocre old man

 Apparently they're getting something that's better. Adrenaline is a hell of a drug.

 That is some next generation shit.

 idk i kinda thought travis would of learned to do quadruple backflips by now...
  • 27 1
 Why isn't Travis riding Rampage?
  • 7 4
 i thought that before i even watched this honestly travis would propably win haha
  • 14 6
 because there is no money in it compared to what he is use to
  • 11 3
 alright, so pastrana is not riding rampage because people don't pay him enough for it, thanks for the clarification bud.

~_~

 Because if he fell once it would probably kill him. I'm shocked he was trying and landed the first ever moto frontflip. That dude is insane to keep going after all the abuse he's put his body through.

 Like Jalopnik said last week, looking at Pastrana is looking at a 45 year old who's only 30.

 Pastrana also isn't quite up to doing rampage

 First moto front flip was done years ago...
  • 1 0
 oops, you're right. Jackson Strong did it a bit ago and Cook tried a double frontie and ended up seriously hurt (SCI I believe). The vid musta meant the first one on that ramp.

 Need the biggest jumps for bicycles? Talk to Zink.
  • 5 4
 Yeah when he said 17ft was the biggest thing hit by a bicycle in history I'd like to see him prove that......
  • 4 0
 height of the ramp
  • 1 0
 @slidways Travis said the ramp its self was biggest not the gap...zinks gap was 100ft and his ramp was not as big as 21ft Razz
  • 2 0
 I think what he meant with bicycle was not a Mountain bike or Downhill bike he meant something without or little suspension like a bmx.
  • 4 0
 Zink only had the the biggest bike gap and his jump was 15ft tall lip and travis's is 20ft lip
  • 1 0
 I was talking about the ramp, if you watch the video he says it was 14ft than they jacked it up to 17ft which was still the biggest thing ever hit by a bicycle. This was all before they put it up to 20ft... 17ft is huge but I think some people could challenge that claim. Not that it matters now because they made the ramp 20ft afterwards.

 Nino Schurter is going to climb that 20 ft ramp while pedalling - without that initial drop in.

 99.9% of the dudes on pink bike do not know who Nino Schurter is. But, yes, he probably could.

 I don't think is going to work.. But we are going to do it anyways.. Haha..

 Dude, just the run in to that huge moto ramp, you need to be a super good rider to be able to pin it thru that shiznit. Probably the reason why most of these ramp monkeys won't be able to hit it. Pastrana is so nuts! Love this guy

 Man the things these guys think of...

 Normally I would say "hurry there are 154 bones left to break, but I really enjoyed the first jump of the last few, I mean 4:03. The best jump ever in my opinion.
  • 1 0
 definitely, but the cork 7 to airbag just shortly after, on a moto also really trumps things up, wow!. i guess he calls it a rodeo 720... but no wait, via wikipedia: "...back in 2009, once he landed the trick, he named it the TP7, due to the fact that he was 20 degrees short of 720...", this guy is unreal!
  • 1 0
 I think it has something to do with negotiating fear over pain memories and risks predictions. Travis just got used to the facts that a lot of his bones are broken several times, there is probability of breaking them again, and it would probably hurt a lot. He clearly decided that it is a cost he can pay for the fun and for the life he is enjoying. I remember him since watching jumps on extreme sports channel about 10 years ago and he must have impressed me already, becuase it is his name I remember. The only better rider I can think of in this discipline is ghost rider (kidding).

Considerring the 4:03 jump, I cannot stop admirring his skills in facing dynamic centre of mass and airflow and using it to control the flight. He almost stopped in the air, to fall down flipping. It is a big wow for me.

When I look at the "amazing ramp", the only thing I am thinking of is the sheer size of it. Going further, why not enlarging the kicker by ten times and the air pillow by ten times in each direction, to do stuff redbull would envy.
