Is a stunt like this possible?

Hello,

I saw an ad on german television, where a biker jump very wide. But i think it's too wide and so it have to be a fake.
What do you think? I am of the opinion that is physical impossibility.

Best regards Malor

Re: Is a stunt like this possible?

it is possible to jump that far on a bike, only, you would have to go alot faster than what he does here, and seeing how the bike then 'explodes' its quite obvious this is all faked here.

you should see some of the stuff on the extreme channel everynow and again, i saw one programme, about bikers in the desert, and they would doing bloody massive jumps, although ofcourse, they were going like 120mph

this is something i found quickly on google: http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=-8054765331608262889&q=massive+bike+jump

obviously this is quite different, since hes just going straight down a mountain side, but then stick a motor on a bike to get it to go that fast, and you could have the same jump on flat ground.

I don't think the rider would have had the ability to climb over a wall after crashing on his stomach on the ramp.  Not sure.

The speed was odd, the "explosion" was silly, and the rider "popping" over the wall looked faked.

Apart from that, a good stunt.
