The background story about the world record project, according to Fischi:
I've been haunting a special idea for several years now: To make the world's longest jump with a MTB, i.e. a world record ! Some years ago Fischi already made test jumps from an 85 meter ski jump and reached a distance of 50 meters. The goal now was to max it out. Fischi's objective: "If I can jump 50 metres from your 85-metre ski jump, then the 140-metre ski jump has to go a lot further!
Following the massive crash video, Fischi released the behind the scenes video below. We also touched base with him and he said he is "all good."
