    are the ribs ready for it? I dont see that as too steep for you. maybe not steep enough to chance the ribs on, but not too steep

    That is a LARGE line. Do you know what kind of runout it's got?

    The speed you'd get out of there, wow.

    Luckily the runout is adequate.

    And...IAM, thanks for the nice gesture, but thats very steep. I can do lines similar to it, but thats (if its the one I am thinking of) gets tonnes of speed. The coming off the platform is blind.

    ya ya...my freaking ribs...

    Looks like the rider is completely out of contact with the rock at that point! Mael, what % of time down that line is in the air vs tire(s) in contact?

    Depends on speed. If you give er I assume you could air most of the bottom. Like I said I haven't hit it. I just know approx where it is. I have several friends who hit it for a movie...

    Doesn't look like there is much rolling involved (more like flying!).
