 The big mama Oakley sender that Zink flipped was barely more than 60ft tip to tip. This is probably half that.

 Sorry to break it to you man @fabdemaere but that jump is about 74' 8" from take of to top of landing, with the sketchiest run in, basically flat take off, and only a 20% grade landing laced with sharp granite rocks underlying the dust.

 so its a 74 foot gap? because height is measured vertically and i was under the impression that's how drops where calculated. no disrespect to the rider though.

 Oh that's where the confusion could be, It's about a 20 foot in height, just a hell of a lot longer length ways.
