 No you don’t. You (like most of us) just suck at fear management!

 Insaaaane ! True @flattire
Dreaming of getting the chance to go out there, shred with the boys and eventually come out alive

 That goes both ways - mass can help stabilize but if gets out of sorts your are screwed, not to mention a 200+ lb dirtbike raining down on you has broken more than one man....

 First jump: "I could hit that."
Second jump: "I could hit that."
Third jump: "Ehhhh, GoPro effect makes it look smaller, I probably wouldn't hit it."
Fourth jump: "I'm not an astronaut."

 Via stopwatch, I measure around 2.1 seconds of air for the final two jumps. I like to check this for various events and I never see anything over 2 seconds. The scale increase needed to add even 0.1 second is huge. This is amazing!

 This is so rad. I wish I could send stuff like that. Must be an absolutely insane feeling. Thanks for pushing the sport folks!

 The first little gap: "Oh yeah, I might be able to do that someday."

The rest of the course: "We must be different species, these riders and I."

 I have had a recurring dream for the last 15 or so years where I'm abe to jump super high, over lamp posts, onto rooves, each jump long and extended and bigger than the last. Sometimes theres a fear of the pain of the landing but it's always fine. Sometimes I'm running from something but most of the time it's just for fun. Riding jumps like these must be a real-life version of that dream...but faster...

 I love a contest where simply getting through the jumps is cause for celebration. These dudes are mental.

 Man, they made those insanely huge jumps look easy and mellow. Crazy.

 I love this! This is just a glimpse of what’s to come from these bold lads. True tactical balls and passion. These guys will be flipping these mega jumps like it’s NBT in short order. Get after it Nico!
