Robbie Maddison Jumps His Motorcycle 278 ft over Canal in Greece

On 7 April 2010, the daredevil performed an amazing moto-x jump over the Corinth Canal in Greece. That made him the first fmx rider who accomplished to cross over the canal on his motorbike. He took off with a speed of 120 km/h and jumped over more than 80m. About the heroic deed Maddison said: "Jumping across the Corinth Canal became a challenge I just could not resist. This Jump involved the highest consequences I have faced so far. I believe that sometimes you have to take risks in life to become wiser and facing a challenge like this will help get me ready for the next aim I will face in the future. I am thrilled about managing to pull it off, as you know there is only one opportunity to get it right!
