Base Jumping a Bike Off the World's Most Dangerous Road Goes Terribly Wrong 9

When a B.A.S.E. jumping "experiment" off the Bolivian Death Road didn't go as planned, Gravity Bolivia sprung into action and helped hoist the jumper up 100+ meters back to the medical team. Miraculously the jumper suffered just "a broken arse, fractures in his forearm, and cut tendons in his knee." Yikes!

    Bad biking skills, bad planning, bad math = failure

    Should have just cleared the landing, got a bigger bike and not bothered with the parachute, he did not think big enough.

    I'm not sure I'd be circulating the video if I'd done something that utterly idiotic. Elementary math skills would have told them that the trajectory of that ramp wasn't even close to adequate based on the speed they'd be able to achieve on a bike, let alone grabbing brake right before take off.

    Maybe he should've practiced cornering a bit first.

    My wife's comment: "What a complete and utter idiot! What did he expect would happen?!"
    In this instance I'm struggling to give her an answer
