Don't know, he can certainly jump big though.

I think this one is on film. He posted some stuff with his camera guy that makes it look like it is. He also posted to make a vlog asap about it so we will know soon enough.

Seems to me a lot of people don't really care anymore about new jump records...

Agreed.

They are so far removed from what is achievable for your average rider.

strange, in beginning he saying that he will go for the record and some his jumps are filmed but this top jump is not filmed. How to understand this ? Somehow he seems unnatural happy before and at the end, maybe some pure additions influence ?

Just to compare the footage from the video Mike put up from that world record session.

Really huge jumps for sure :thumb: , but not sure, if any of those jumps from the video were 34m? and if that jump was that actual world record jump which woo recorded 34,1m. But it was the highest in my opinion from the video.

If you compare from the picture, it depends were you take ground point and how tall is Mike. But if putting approximately 1,8m as his height, then this actual jump was 27m, if he is taller, then maybe 1-2m higher, is shorter, then 1-2m lower jump.

And how accurate is woo? everyone can make up their mind themselves :jump: . So I think it as Woo meters, not meters :-).

But congrats to Mike getting the new WOO world record.
