when you see these guys do these enormous jumps, in all the crazy mx videos, how high do you think they are getting? like 3stories high? what about the triples at the pro sx tracks? like 1 story high or so?

lets just say that if you fell from that high, you wouldn't be riding a bike much more in your lifetime, that is if you wern't already dead.

I could be way off, but isn't 1 story like 11 ft or so? I'm pretty sure the jumps themselves are taller than that.

Lets see, a standard FMX ramp is about 8' high. So, they're getting around 2 times as high as the ramp (im trying to imagine scenes from videos) so about 16' maybe?

Aus comp standard fmx ramp is 2.6 high. They get well over double that height. You do the maths.

well I was on the 3rd story of my school building today looking out saying dang thats pretty high. I dont know if they get that high or not. some of the jumps people do are insane. I was just wondering like roughly how many feet high you guys would guess they get like say for example when they go big in the sand dunes or something like that. I would like to be able to "go big" one day.
