I was just wondering what was the biggest dirt jump ever cleared on a mountain bike? Also what was the highest drop ever done on a monutain bike? I've been searching around alot lately and couldn't find anything. Thanks in advance!!!

~45ft by a mountain bike
Biggest attempted ~54ft

I assume you want to know the biggest gap...I doubt anyone bothered to measure.

My biggest drop is 6 Feet, and the biggest dirt jump I have ever down is about a 8 foot gap!

There is this road gap I hope to do when I get better and a better bike, cuase mine doesn't work any more frame is bent!!! lol. But the road gap is 10FT high, then 8 foot gap, and then down a 3FT landing ramp.
