There’s a brand new 'big bike' jump line coming to life in the Rai Valley near Nelson, New Zealand. It will be one of the biggest jump lines in New Zealand and will sit strong among the biggest in the world.
The line currently consists of jumps ranging from 30-60ft, with the aim of getting an 80ft double rolling towards the end of the year, as far as we know the 80ft double will be the biggest big bike jump in the country and will be right up there on the world stage. The late great Kelly McGarry was a big inspiration in making this jump line happen!
The crew of Reon Boe, Emmerson Wilken, Adam Lynskey, Joel Tunbridge, Myself and filmers Scott Robb and Sam Cameron, set off from Queenstown and made our way to Nelson, riding in several unique locations along the way...
After five days on the road and six days in the Rai Valley, this mission had come to an end. We didn't quite manage to get done what we had in mind, but we will be back! A massive shout out to everyone who helped turn this project into reality, you all know who you are, and a special thanks to Scott Robb from Parallax Media and Torpedo 7.
