 respect! you´re really one to look up for the kids by hitting this jump with your age, hope that i am able to do that too when i'm as old as you...

 i've hit the jump several times, know it well. It's a 30' to 60' launching step down depending on how hot you roll off the launch. The speed you get from the landing puts you hard on the brakes to slow down enough for the 35-40' table right after it. The guy in the pic is hitting about 30-35 feet judging by his height in the arc. When it comes to air that run is by far the best one i know.

 Were you able to land on the landing or did you land on the flat? When I went to Bromont, I only saw one person try it.. he landed on the flat. Even so, it is pretty big! Props!

 I landed so smooth on that particular jump...that it felt like I could have landed it with my hardtail! BUT!...The next day I went back and hit it way tooooooo FAST and sailed past the landing and landed with all rear wheel...and crumpled myself into the ground. Now that was really scary seeing the landing fly by!!! Result...Dislocated shoulder! Not too bad considering!

 Ouch. That is really harsh. How much speed do you need? After the drop, how much do you have to pedal?
  • 0 0
 No pedalling needed!...just land the drop in the middle of the tranny and don't touch the brakes at all!

 And when your in the air, do you just let yourself go Or do you have to move your bike so it lands right?
