Robbie Maddison new years eve jump 2008 Videos

Australian stuntman Robbie Maddison rode into the new year with a gravity-defying feat in Las Vegas. Speeding down the strip outside Paris Las Vegas casino at 90kmh, he launched his Yamaha motocross bike up a giant ramp built by Brown United, flew through the air and landed on top of a replica of the Arc de Triomphe. The stunt was equivalent to jumping on a 10-storey apartment building. After landing safely, the 27-year-old showman from the Kiama in NSW performed one last death-defying stunt, dropping off the Arc de Triomphe and free-falling to a landing ramp below also created by Brown United, the Event Construction Specialists.
