That was pretty cool to see someone jump a bike that far BUT....... back in the day when Eviel Keneivel and others would try for distance records, they jumped from an elevated ramp to another ramp. The guys today jump from an elevated ramp over a hill to the down slope. Still pretty impressive but I guess that's the difference between a "Dare Devil" and a "Long Distance" jumper.

They were jumping around 1/3 the distance too. At the distance guys are jumping now an old school landing ramp would be suicide. Give credit where credit is due.
