I'm so proud of both Maddison and Capes for their monumental efforts to raise the bar in motorcycle jumping. They are the driving force in this sport today, and they are the most talented jumpers today.
I'm also proud of the job that Monster Energy and Red Bull are doing. They've shared the responsibility of elevating the motorcycle jumping game in the last few years, and I hope they will continue to break new ground and support the guys who take it to the next level. Without them, the riders couldn't do it at all!
Let's hope new major sponsors will foot the bill to create large elevator platforms like Maddo's using, and other things, to expand the game! Jumping is the most exciting thing, and if the right people get behind it, it's a publicity coup de grace!
Tune in to ESPN tonight at 8PM central time and the show will come on right after the Chick-Fil-A Bowl game, and it will be LIVE! They'll show Rhys Millen doing a backflip in his off-road race truck on the same show, live! Remember, last year he was practicing for this jump and he overjumped the landing, landed upside down on flat ground, and broke his neck and back in several places.
This will be spectacular and groundbreaking!
