We’ve been hearing rumors for a while now, but it’s only recently that we were able to piece the puzzle together. We gotta say, there must be something in Red Bull that makes all of its sponsored racers do the insanest of insane things.
Ok, we’re not being serious with that, but it’s really one big coincidence, don’t you think? We all remember Travis Pastrana ringing in 2010 by jumping 269 feet off of the Long Beach Pier into a barge using his Subaru WRX STI. He’s sponsored by Red Bull, you know.
Now we have yet another Red Bull-sponsored rider, freestyle motocross extraordinaire Robbie Maddison, performing yet another one of these death-defying leaps. This time, Maddison is taking his lovely motocross bike to jump across the Corinth Canal. If you remember back at the start of 2009, the man they call "Maddo" jumped the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, so things of this nature are nothing new to this guy.
Check out the video and see how far Maddo went with his latest jump; the whole thing’s not exactly peaches and cream so you gotta give him credit for having balls of steel. Or maybe we’re just overestimating his courage. Maybe it’s all Red Bull. Drink it and you’re bound to do something crazy.
