Robbie Maddison Ended 2008 In The Best Possible Way... For An Insane Person.

When I first watched this clip of Robbie Maddison jumping a Las Vegas replica of the french Arc de Triomphe monument, I wasn't terribly impressed. The ramp looked like it went almost all the way up to the top of the monument, and his actual hang time didn't look that great.

Then I watched his descent. That's probably the freakiest part of the whole thing. Don't bother reading what I think about it. Just watch for yourself. It's seriously insane.

 that wasnt so great.... ... it was just dropping off the building on a ramp..... any motocross rider can do that perfectly 9 out of 10 times. The up part took more skill than  the down part.

We were watching this last night and I got to agree, the going up part wasnt nearly as impressive as the coming down.  I know I would've been s******* down both legs had I been making that drop

If he was as scared as his "shaking" fiance was when I saw her, then he must have been white as a ghost underneath his outfit.  The going up part wouldn't be as the coming back down part for me.

Talk about "pucker factor" - I wouldn't be able to s*** for a week after that.
