Robbie Maddison world record jump video

Published: 02 January 2008

Robbie Maddison broke the world record for the longest motorcycle jump on new years day of 2008.

The Australian motocross rider dedicated his motorcycle jump to his hero, Evel Knievel, after his death in November 2007.

Robbie jumped 322 feet (98 metres), to break the previous record of 310 feet, which was set by Ryan Capes.

Since Robbie just managed to miss out on the 100 metre mark, he is expected to attempt the jump again in March, to break 100 metres.
