Re: 250cc distance record.
That's amazing news! Tyrone's rise to the top came early in life, and it's not totally surprising that he would eventually challenge even the very talented Ryan Capes' distance records. I was there when Ryan did that 310 foot plus jump, the first ever jump over 300 feet, and it was unforgettable, life-changing and it changed the whole sport to see somebody break 300. His ramp booted him so high in the air, and it was such a quick ramp that he had to have incredible talent to hit it that fast, along with perfect timing and sharply honed quick-twitch muscle fibers in his legs! Those are some huge footsteps Tyrone is following, and we wish him the very best of skill! I trust that he won't have to work quite as hard as Ryan did, because his ramp won't be so abrupt, but no matter how you fly that far, you earn every single inch! Those are some hard-earned inches, too!
