This hair-raising video is of Kelly McGarry flipping a 72-foot-long canyon gap at Red Bull Rampage in 2013. It got him a 2nd place finish.
Almost 28 million people have watched this video, and you can see why.
I have seen a few stunts and scary moments in sport, but I can say that I have not seen anything quite this freaky. If you look on each side of the “course” (1-2 foot wide track), it is a straight drop to nowhere. Instant death? Maybe not but some drops would test has ability to live for sure. And if you look at at few of the jumps, there is no room for error. Not sure if this is stupidity or sheer courage.
The big question is….if this rider got a 2nd place, who the heck was the winner?!?
