Missed gap jump and an injured back...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
From todays "Track TGR" Chris Collins set up a sweet river gap but turfed the landing, compressing a couple of vertabrae. Here is part of the sequence. The rest of the pics and Collins' words are on Track TGR today. You know where to find it...

Obviously he missed it by the proverbial mile.

How do you work out wether it is makeable or not?? Sure when hucking cliffs there is white stuff at the bottom but hucking rivers ????

So whats the method .... find river, build jump and ask who wants to go first ???

or do you measure the potential run in speed based on wax type, board surface area, rider flat running ability, wind velocity, possible distance + length in air / jump exit velocity etc - water surface area warm air rise factor, etc

Nah stuff it .... just go dude, the cameras running.

How soon before you all attempt the Grand Canyon ..... Evel did !!!!

if i may correct you Man from Oz,
evil didn't attempt to jump the Grand Canyon,but rather the Snake River Canyon, in Southern Idaho.
