 Just when I thought we were reaching the peak of insanity, Aguado hits a front flip that actually looks like it defies physics, and I am reminded that progression of the sport is alive. My mind is blown.

 Any front flip on a bike is literally pushing against all the natural physics on what the bike/rider want to do, which is why it’s so hard and most of the time fairly awkward looking. Even the smoothest front flips still look pretty harsh.

 Well Said! The style on it was so good too... almost looked like a classic Simon Dumont "lawn-dart front flip"... so cool!

 @taurausmountain: oh god you're probably one of those kids that voted for Dumont to win best trick that horrendous night we shall not speak of.

 Not trying to take anything away from Bien. What he did is truly insane, but lest we all forget, Tom Vansteenbergen did this five years ago on a super rough-cut, virgin line. Still blows my mind:

 Well his headtube didn't snap off so things must be going well for him.

 playing with a trajectory calculator, assuming a 45 degree launch, height of zero (lip and landing roughly level) and a 33 mph takeoff speed, I get a distance 72 feet. how close is that to the real deal?
  • 1 0
 The take off has 33° and yes the landing and take off are roughly the same height

 @struc: thanks! dang, speed is more like 34.5 mph then. Assuming zero friction. Wink

 @struc: When you pop perfectly your CoG has trajectory of 35° and you can also go 35mph with some air resistance. It's a perfect jump. #35crew

 I'm getting too old. Last time at the dirt jumps, I wrecked my good track pants, and cut my shin up really bad, from landing short. The general consensus after that was, "eeeeediot".

 Is he actually tapping the front brake before take off because it does not seem like it in the onride video?
