Who would have guessed you could jump a snowmobile farther than a cycle ? Maddo did "make it look easy" ( had he been actually jumping 400' ramp to ramp he would have crashed into the safety ramp) Long, straight, smooth runway and landing ramp ( I realize it was a double ) of GIGANTIC proportions with Maddo's talent it could be no other way.The ball dropping at Time's Square was more exciting. 2012 holds much promise with probable jumps from guys who have never practiced with foam pits and dirt mountains. For comparison, hundreds of Alaska bush pilots (been there-done that) have far worse odds EVERY day of taking off and landing successfully than Maddo did last night...and they have wings.
