German mountain biker Johannes Fischbach was attempting a world record mountain bike jump when he ate it… hard. Honestly the attempt itself looks pretty clean, right up until that last moment. So clean, in fact, that he actually landed it after the fall (that video is below the crash video). Fortunately he was pretty much okay after this attempt.

I’ve been haunting a special idea for several years now: To make the world’s longest jump with a MTB, i.e. a world record ! Some years ago Fischi already made test jumps from an 85 meter ski jump and reached a distance of 50 meters. The goal now was to max it out. Fischi’s objective: “If I can jump 50 metres from your 85-metre ski jump, then the 140-metre ski jump has to go a lot further!
