I can't even wrap my head around what it must be like to get racked by your bike frame from a badly landed jump at those heights. Balls of steel must come in handy in those situations.

/now that I think of it I wonder if that's the actual origin of that phrase...

I never understood why people glorify this kind of thing, but then turn around and badmouth drug addicts for putting their lives at risk for their own selfish reasons. Granted, one involves a great deal of skill while the other doesn't, but if the issue is that they're taking the chance of depriving their loved ones of their continued existence for selfish reasons then I don't see the distinction.

OK.  I get this.  If he makes one mistake -- he falls a long long way onto pointy rocks.  That takes balls ... or stupidity.

But I still don't get why the guys that surf large waves are held in equal regard.  If they fall, they fall into water.

And then a 40 foot tall tower of water that has been churned up due to coming into a shallow area, usually over pointy rocks, falls on top of him.

And pushes him down onto razor sharp coral reef.

If he had been the first to do that particular trail sure, but since he is using an existing trail, not so much.

That trail didn't exist until Red Bull built it for that event.

I think it's a matter of putting your own life in danger for thrills versus putting other people's lives in danger for your thrills (because they need to rescue you).

This.

"Hey kid, I'm going to war to fight a manical freak who has slaughtered millions of people. I might not come back."  Okay, I get it.

"Hey kids, I'm going for a bike ride. If I screw up by an inch, I won't be home for dinner."  WHY?

Good point. And correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't a GoPro camera with its wide-angle lens tend to exaggerate distances? Not that this wasn't still really out there...
 
2014-04-18 04:19:09 PM
the distance from the front wheel; to the camera is what, 1000 feet, right?  ugh.

The thing is, to him...it's just Tuesday.  Sure, to an average person who has little to no experience in that realm, it would almost certainly be suicide.  He probably started out just riding your standard neighborhood trails and over the years his skill level has risen to the point that he can handle this sort of thing with less risk to himself than most people have crossing a busy street.

Do you know how I know you have never turned a lap in a sprint car? You just go faster and faster until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.

Yeah, this generation is nuts. I don't know what's up with their death-defying stunts - where did they ever get that idea?

Nothing like destroying the environment so a couple of over-amped testosterone junkies can get their fix and bunch of vultures can watch hoping someone dies.

I don't argue with that, at all.  The Rampage events are pretty high impact.  Downhill MTB seems kind of anti-thetical to the leave no trace movement.
