Flatland, street, park, vert, dirt, racing/downhill has all been done, and there is no other form of BMX out there.

maybe itll be bmx mega ramp, like they did for skateboards. vert, street, and mega ramp are the three skateboard disciplines now

Bike mega-ramp...I doubt that. Bikes can fly too far and doing a trick on a bike with that height and speed is insane.

Yea That would be insane to watch a guy about 100ft In the air on a bike......Just imagine what it would be like to do it.Hopefully there is a bmx mega ramp.

I've seen bike big air jumps before. Done a 62' one myself and that was just fucking idiotic of me.

The speed that needs to be gained to clear just 50' is crazy because if you crash, even just sliding out, you ahve that 20-35lb chunk of steel, plastic, and rubber with you.

Doing anything more then a table or flattie over 40'+ is stupid.

The mountain bike guy who 50/50'd the roof and got the 9" gash on his leg?

i dont thinks so but he was towed by a white van

ive seen that video too and its really old.

i saw a guy backflip the short gap on the x games mega ramp last year on a bike.

they said doing 75' jumps on skateboards was insane, when it started. now all the vert skaters have done it. could be possible on a bike.
