    I want to see someone jump the one that is used in the thumbnail picture, the K120 in Lake Placid.
    Or even beyond that I wonder if it would be possible to get to the K-spot on a Ski fly hill on a mountain bike. Check out the video for the ski fly world record http://youtu.be/Vvfo4W0NV64

    Red Bull gives you wings, they said. Belive it, we didn't. Then came the crazy german. He's sooooo so close to nosing it and doing a massive face plant that would've had terrible consequences. Talk about hanging on to it. Respect.
