1 01 2008

Robbie Maddison…New Year’s Eve, Las Vegas – Australian Robbie Maddison broke the World Record for the longest ever jump on a motorcycle, jumping almost 100 meters – 98.34m (322 feet, 7.5 inches) at the Rio All-Suite Casino. 
He smashed the old world record of 84.6m (277.6 feet), and the unofficial mark of 94.6m (310.4 feet). 
During practice, Maddison jumped an ‘unofficial’ mark of 106.8m – 350 feet. 
When asked how far he thinks he can jump, Maddison declared that he believes he can jump 400 feet.

“I know I’m definitely going to do it.”

Robbie, 1-01-08

I was really concerned about this jump. However, I am amazed at your success and wish to pass along to you good will and congratulations. What a spectacular feat! I had to view the jump on You Tube. I fell asleep New Years Eve before the event.
At any rate, you’re an amazing young man. I wish you continued success and I am praying for you always!!
Blessings and Light,
Robert Michael Jacobson (Carney, Md)

I remember as a kid watching Evel Knievel and thinking too myself that he needed a bigger ramp to land on – I wonder if that may have been the case?

Dear Robbie

what a fine jump that was i hope you never fail, all that you did in that jump
do it every time, remember you never question what works. the ramp,
the bike, the people, the way you felt, the wind, the speed, everything.
dont ever change.if we are still here, in 20 years you will be fine.

P S value your Instinks.
