You can never mistake Travis Pastrana for being a reserved and conservative fellow. On the contrary, he is everything but those two things. One of the best that’s ever driven a dirtbike, Pastrana has a long list of death-defying stunts to his credit, a list that only a few equally crazy people in the world can boast of doing.
In time for the New Year’s celebration, Pastrana has decided to ring in 2010 with a bang…or, jump. Never one to back down from a new stunt, the all-world biker is planning on jumping a car off a ramp at the end of a pier into a waiting barge, covering a distance of over 250 feet of water in the process. Sounds like a routine day in the office for a man like Pastrana, right?
Naturally, a jump of this craziness requires some time for practice and as this video clearly shows, if Pastrana is looking to achieve his death-defying leap, he’s going to need a few more practices under his belt – and maybe even a few more cars to destroy, too.
