Skier Spins off 24-story Ski Jump…Backwards

Amazing courage just to hold the line.

Dude, I couldn’t do that. My brother, perhaps, he was among the 1st generation to really get into the mogul competitions. I definitely couldn’t do that. I’ve hit speeds like that riding my bike, but man. That was pretty cool. It was interesting to see how he reacted to the crash.

Thanks for sharing.

I get what you’re saying, but I don’t think he really had any choice after he got going. It’s hold the line or get into a Looney Tunes level of a tumble. :joy:

I hate to say it, but that much speed on a bike is a LOT of fun. There’s an exchange between the 105 and 405 freeways that puts you in a really tight lean (lean is so tight that I was scraping my left foot rest)… yeah doing that at over 100mph at 2am was too much to resist… a few times. :sweat_smile:

I"ve done that type of speed (100mph +) on my moto, but by bike I mean my road bike.

Now 60mph on a bicycle can be spooky, especially if you have a shimmy. I suspect on skies it can be a bit spooky too.

Okay, I had no idea that was a thing or even possible. Wow, impressive!
