in replays you could see the bike nose down when he hit the rear brake -- it really pitched down sharply when he did that. I think the 2nd time he had to get back on the gas to get the nose up again, but I didn't DVR it so I can't be certain.

He DID almost fly it off the left of the ramp the 2nd time, the camera crew were all scooting out of the way down the side of the ramp

It was pretty effin cool but the show was waaaaayyyy too drawn out. It felt like the preshow to a UFC with the same stuff over and over for an hour or so. I was pumped to see Rhys Millen backflip the truck but it sucks he got hurt in practice.

yeap he jumped 98 metres but was jumping ten metres further in practise,there was appariently a strong head wind that night,the second jump was smooth and in more control than the first,it was robbie maddison from australia,and the best part is in my home town in australia in march 08 we have the night of world records here,robbie promises to try to better the jump then he was hoping to jump 120 meters, major props alright,,good ol red bull put the whole show on too,
