This year Jarryd McNeil to the top spot at the Dirt Shark Best Whip Contest that took place during the Monster Energy Cup. Our friends over at MXTV had a chance to sit down and catch up with the man him self and find out what makes him tick and how he became a freestyle star. Check it out below.
As we have said in the past, if Greg Godfrey tells you to do something it is probably going to be in your best interest to do the exact opposite of what he tells you to do.
Josh Shave, marketing manager for Mastercraft boats learned that lesson how most of us did, THE HARD WAY!! Check out the video below from Shaves first time ever on a dirt bike and his first ever jump on a dirt bike. Ironically both firsts were in the same run. Enjoy.
Free Style Motocross sensation Robbie Maddison, age 33, is redefining the term “adrenaline junky” with every new stunt he takes on. Featured in the new full-length film, On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter, is Maddison’s latest sanity-defying stunt: the jumping of the Nordic Ski long jump in Park City that was originally built for the Salt Lake Winter Olympics in 2002.
Maddison, teaming up with Skullcandy and Red Bull Media House on the project, took 2.5 years setting up the jump. With the ramp being built for Olympic-level skiers, it sits at a dropping -10 degrees, but the team setting up Maddison’s jump built in a special load-in ramp raising the take off up to 0 degrees. Still not much, but very significant for the nature of the jump.
When Maddison shot off the ramp and began flying down the 18 ½-story drop (185 feet, a new world record), he was clocked at 71mph. While the speed at the time of landing wasn’t tracked, the overall distance of the jump once Maddison successfully landed was 114 meters (374 feet)!
For Robbie Maddison, these kinds of stunts are always a risk. But the feeling that comes in pulling it off is a huge takeaway.
