Watch this motocross rider jump a biplane at the 2014 Cameron Air Show

By Deeq on 17 Jun 2014 in Motorsports, Other blogs

Evel Knievel transformed the motorcycle jump into the undisputed king of vehicular stunts. It's just so insanely dangerous. There's practically nothing keeping the rider safe, other than their ability to land the bike on the other side, of course.

While we've seen some spectacular jumps, the recent 2014 Cameron Air Show in Cameron, MO, took things to new heights, literally. Instead of just trying to leap over several things like you might normally see, the cycle only had to make it past one obstacle. Thing is, that obstacle happens to be a biplane flying just a few feet off the ground.

The video slows the whole feat way down so that you can watch rider Cody Elkins launch over pilot Skip Stewart in the plane in great detail.
 
This is either a seriously cool motorcycle jump or an incredibly dangerous airplane stunt, depending on how you want to look at it.

Looks like the biker miss-timed it, the plane only came after he jumped. would have been better if the plane came 1st

Impressive, but there are much more heart-stopping stunts performed by other stunt bikers around the world.
 
One good example would be Robbie Maddison's Red Bull 2008 New Year's Eve jump to the top of the Arc de Triomphe at Paris Las Vegas. What's amazing wasn't the jump up, but the way down.
 

 
I've watched this over and over again and each time it leaves me in awe! It definitely takes someone insane and with balls of steel to do this!
