Oh, to be Travis Pastrana: bored by motocross/supercross, freestyle motoX, rally racing, doing a double backflip and jumping out of a plane without a parachute, he invented the new sport of Hydrojump: basically hydroplaning and then launching a bike off a floating ramp.
By late afternoon we headed back to the Hydrojump and Jim was ready to get this one over with. He geared up and let 'er rip! The tricky part on this one was the run up, there was a 90 degree turn at the top of the hill you came down then you had to line up with not a lot of time to hit the water after the 90, also having to keep your momentum for a great amount of speed to reach the ramp, not to mention it had been rain off and on all day and it was slick as heck! A lot to think about as your coming up to a 110 foot long hydroplane off a 4 foot wide freestyle ramp. Just thread the needle boys!
