    does that sequence look odd to anyone else? he's lower in the 6th shot in the sequence than in the 5th or 7th...

    don't have the linky, but Crusy released a clip of Trigger's 276ft (I think) jump at night and it looked WAAAAAAY bigger. Maybe it was the lense they were using. Just seemed like he was hanging and hanging and hanging. I'm glad people are still daredevils personally. I know there are people who say, "cheap publicity stunt, and it is bad PR for the health of the sport, yadda, yadda", but I personally hope there is always people pushing the distance on all wheeled things further and further.

    ok, those 2 photos are not the same place. The bottom one has a white guardrail, chainlink fence, and a small grandstand to the left of the jump. The top photo has trees.

    Being picky, the sequence seems a bit off to me.

    Look at the 6th part of the sequence. Looks a little lower than the ones before and after it.
