Sick..just sick!!!

Hi guys,

If you're into dirt jumping and stunts, you've just gotta watch this video...you'll need Microsoft Media Player to watch it which you can download from the site...

Click on the SOC Met-RX Dirt Jumping Contest video

Enjoy

Rich

I wish I had skeelz like that. I can barely bunny hop my bike six inches off the ground.

The best one is where the jumper extended his arms before touchdown. Quite a tumble.

I had a good chuckle on that one...bless him.

I found a new place around the corner from me where someone has built a little jump site...maybe one day, I could eat dirt too!?! :thumbup:

Near my house I also found a place where jumps have been built. It's amazing going out there and seeing these guys doing doubles and triples.

The last time I tried to do a jump it just didn't end very well. I was riding on a BMX track and hit a double. Unfortunately I came up short and snapped my fork. Luckily no body parts were broken.

I'm an excellent jumper, it's the landing I have trouble with!

Later Gator
