World Long Jump Record..

I was just thinking this morning about long jumps and who holds the current distance records. I might be wrong but it looks like Jason Rennie still holds the mountain bike record with a leap of 133.6ft back Febuary of 2006. Rennie (no relation to Nathan Rennie who jumped 116ft in 2005) recorded for the longest ever ramp to ramp bicycle jump and was towed up to a speed of 83mph by a YZ 250.

Anytakers for beating that 3 year old record?

The longest current motobike jump still looks like Jason Bird in June 2008 with a leap of 395ft (nearly 3 times longer than a bicycle).

Yeah they jump to to conclusion about they're size of other things to but the better half sorts em out there too :D

Those guy's above impress the heck out of me, mind you I stil get kicks watching old vids of Hannah and Lechien and Bailey, RJ Magoo, and Co I still fnd that impressive, ony cause I know those bikes rip ya arms to peaces compared to the smooth power and butter suspension to bikes today, groms would jump on an yz250 and get decked nowadays:D
