I can't believe I missed this

Evel Knievel was the god of crashing while doing backyard stunts and Robbie Maddison has erased all memory of lame motorcycle stunts.

  1. I talked with Maddison on the phone after the Vegas tower jump. He has a staff physicist, they use instrumentation, and that 98-foot tower jump was practiced by use of a tower at the Red Bull Tech Center whose height could be increased incrementally. He told me he wants to "live big", which I took to mean he wasn't interested in pro MX, &c. Big pay-offs, right now, with some chance of having two good knees once the bank calls to say his account's full.

    Has something happened to him?



Disagree? Bring it on. Have more to add? Feel free to set me straight. Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't do a great job of figuring out which Anonymous commenters are actually real people, not Russians or Chinese bots. I'm pretty ruthless about spam-labeling anonymous posts. If you have something worth saying, you shouldn't be afraid of using your ID.
