Is there anything better than hitting a jump for the first time? Steve (aka Mike) Wentz guinea pigs the revised rhythm line at the top of the Sea Otter DH track. Truvativ sponsored the DH track rebuild and Steve is part of Momentum Trail Concepts, the team re-doing the track. If you build it, you get to hit it. To answer all your questions...yes, he eventually made it and the jump works great. Pure comedy on this first attempt though!
