In about 2 weeks the Zwarte cross(black cross) event will host an amazing world record.

Basicly it's a biker jumping of a 70 meters high stunt tower (shaped as a beerbottle)

The highest jump ever performed is 33 meters in wich the stuntman broke one hand So this is quite the happening.
Videofootage of the old jump is found here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eM1e51mxulA


The build of the tower is now in its third week and there is now a shortage of scaffolding in the Area where the event is hosted. (the tower needs over 50 kilometers of scaffolding and 14000 beams is needed)


Here are a few pictures of when the tower reached the 35 meters : http://www.dumpert.nl/mediabase/556241/37d8c922/toren_wereldrecord_motorcross_jump_70meter.html


And here is the live webcam of the build : http://www.zwartecross.nl/webcam/ (picture refreshes every 20 seconds)


The structure is now 70 meters high and is ready to be packed in green foil for looks. I cant wait till the jump.

Will be impressive if the rider completes the jump. That is an insane height and he will surely die if he gets it wrong.

'Robbie said after the jump that he may have broken his hand and had a gash to the bone in the webbing of his left hand.'

I know wikipedia.

He was smashing his hands against his helmet, and other people. You don't do that if you've broken a bone. I mean he very well could've, but he's a hardass if he did .

EDIT: We have bones in the webbings of our fingers?

ahahaahhahaha. Sorry, that diagram of the jump looks like it's out of a children's book. This should be awesome though!

If he could do the jump without the aid of the bike I would be impressed.

That picture looks like something I would draw in Algebra class.

Will this be Robbie Maddison again?

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.
