Well here is a 75cm jump competition (doesn’t need to be over a bar). You can do it any way; static, rolling, Sif, Sif, with or without a prehop…
My rules may look familiar…
-Can’t have landed a 75cm hop before.
-Must show measuring tape.
-Must be 75cm. Not 74.8cm.
-1st 2nd and 3rd recieve a siggy tag.
-Wait a bit for others to read this thread. (until we have 5 participants?)
Here it is: hopefully I land it around Halloween or I may change it…
well whoever lands it first can change it if they want…
Hmm… I guess there can be a 75 blind competition in this thread too, but not the same comp… I’m not sure all competitors would agree. I can make a poll if you want.
Is there anyway to change the name of the thread so other riders see that there is also a 75cm blind comp?
Or maybe you could make a new thread. I’m sure a bunch of trials riders would find that a fun challenge.
Why will you try over bar? It is harder. But I guess it would be nice to know you can get 75cm official.
The progression has been huge. The world record at the 1999 U.S. nationals was only 62 cm, done on a 24" Muni that weight about 21 lbs. By 2001 the record was at 87.5 cm, which I think was the last time the height record was broken on a 24" muni. In 2002 it went to 90 cm at UNICON in Seattle, which tied Ot Pi’s longstanding 1980’s sidehop record on a trials bike. That was the last time I held the record; since then it has obviously gone way up.
Wow, so much improvment. Thanks for the posts, I would have never known.
So today will be my first attempts to improve my high jump since I started this. A lot of homework and rain held me back. I am really not sure how I should try this, my sidehop is more consistant but I get lower on it (well if I didn’t slip i would be even) than my rolling hop.
