 You people should read more thing about Bender. Yeah he's damn stupid to hit such big thing. But he's one of the guy who did the most change to the mountain bike. You will see that he probably did more thing than the most famous rider you love. See this link : www.redbullrampage.com/freerider-bio.php?ath=3

Next thim you're going to coumplain about a rider who do something just think about what he did or what he can do...

 Why put a label on Bender?...He is what he is, and the only important thing is that he rides a bike.You can call him what ever you want but one thing remains: the man rides a bike and that's bottom line.It doesn't matter what or how you ride as long you ride!LIVE THE RIDE SHARE THE PASSION.Smile

 damn... well said. i can't understand how so many people don't have respect for one of the pioneers of freeride mountain biking.
  • 8 1
 @BikerBaillie: he crashed really hard the first time, but he tried it again a year later, but all those 3 times he didn't land it

 i dont see why everyone is dissing him.....to be honest NONE!!!! of you would do that....hes a rider who sets records...and yes he is classed as a freerider....hense the name FREERIDER he rides FREE
  • 13 6
 haha apparently he was lookin for a 100 footer to hit...ill be aww struck if he comes out alive
  • 5 1
 I think the landing for it is no where neer steep enough. And it is better to have a hard landing because when your wheels land, if it is soft, your wheels will just stop rolling and you will get bucked. Smile

Huuuuuge drop though.

 This is great .Such controversy! You know why, you all know his name... don't you? Bender had someone film him breaking an Ellesworth with an FSR Link in half,on a 25 ft drop .Jan Karpiel saw the video , being an Air Craft Landing gear Engineer , Karpiel built linkage ,that would allow a bike drivetrain to pedal as well as taking big impacts .The Karpiel linkage was also the same design that inspired the DW link . Karpiel dosen't care much for U.S patent laws or american business ,so it was never a court battle , Jan hold pattents in Aircraft ,and could care less about David Wiegal .Bender the R& D man and Karpiel the Engineer, those two men are the reason of advancement, in all mountain biking as we know it today.

 bender is a legend what has he ever done to you? nothing apart from do what he loves doing riding his bike maybe he wasnt as skilled as others but who cares everyone likes to do different things doesnt mean we can hate them for it i mean i dont like downhill i dont go about saying sam hill is a c*nt i dont really see why people dislike him what he does doesnt concern us anyway its up to him what he does
  • 1 1
 i dont care what people say that guy has got guts and deserves way more credit then some of you guys are giving him i think look at that thing plus things always look bigger when you look over the side its alot easy for everone to just sit on there computer and comment on it but go out and actly see that shit! you would change your apon just my idea

 can i just say that no one here includung myself can say " oh why don't you go huck if its so easy" cuz no one here has ever tried it and never will....

not to mention it doesn't take skills to hit something, it takes balls.

 everyone just shut the fuck up!!!! who cares if they keep posting it, or if hes bad rider, just comment on the fuckin pic, and get over it, GOD FUCKIN DAMN!! pinkbike people are so annoying

 I heard the landings like cement.
  • 3 1
 well, with the force of falling off a 60ft cliff pretty much anything would be.
  • 2 1
 no man the landeins shit me and my freind huck a mini bike off it and where checkin it out and the trannys flat as fuck and its like 2 feet off soft sand
  • 0 1
 its so stupid,bender is acutaly good,you think if he couldnt ride he would just ride a bike cuz he thinks it looks cool then says ill just hit this 40 foot cliff on it? i mean if you watch his segments he lands 90% of his jumps and crashes on the biggest one he hits,in this case 55 feet biggest ever attemped to date and probly it will stay that way inless the same guy who made the record goes for the 100. and if you dont respect him as a rider read steeve o's coment.

 " haha bender sucks because theres no skill involved in doing that"
bollox if you had his bike your saying you could do that
  • 0 1
 dude bender is a badass i was reading a comment at the top that says someone else could have done something bigger and probably landed it well guess what? i have not seen it yet so until then bender is in my opinion on of the best huckers. also, who cares about his style? as long as he does what he was going for right? one more thing ^^^^i am going to check out steve's drop.^^^^

 its not about skill its having a bike that has a slight chance of survival and big balls.(sure he doesnt have balls anymore)Big Grin anyway not much skill needed tbh. its more luck
  • 0 1
 sorry G1BBO but i think there is skills needed you cant just huck your self of a drop,you need to no how to land right,and befor some one says he didnt land it,as bender said "its becase the landing is not steep enough for the size of that drop" ,
  • 0 0
 yer skill is needed and experience but in my personal view i think its more balls.
  • 0 0
 HAHA HE SAID TO ME THAT IT NEEDS SKILL BECAUSE ITS 55FT TO FLAR CONCRETE:s? HE EVEN CONRETED IT HIMSELF OU KNOW. DO YOU SEE ANY FLAT CONCRETE THERE?
f*cking retard.aiden your shit shut up

 he may not have amazing style, but he deffinitely has skills it takes alot more than a nice bike to huck off 55ft gaps and it deffinitely takes alot o balls, just because he doesnt do cool tricks doesnt make him suck....

 Some of you guys are actually retarded, specifically mtbkr123456789. He was styling jumps way before you were even riding champ, he just took apart of the sport to the next level later in his career.

 For all guys who think it's easy with a good bike.. Proof yourself! When you fall down at such a height... You will get nuts! And probably don't make it!
  • 0 1
 you would expect the guy to prepare the landing more considering how huge he is hucking.........like come on man but then again perhaps he did and i just don't to my studying

 id say it takes more balls than skill. thats just my opinion so please dont get all butthurt bender lovers out there. the industry speaks for itself, benders not catching onto the new age of riding.
