yeah I don't get it either... This jump has a huge reception (Is it called reception?), I don't understand how can you calculate so bad the speed... I would understand coming short, But that long... ¿? Anyway, I hope he is fully recovered cause he is one of the best skiers out there
actually the speed was calculated perfectly... u think math doesnt work in real life? 55 mph on the sled. what messes u up is u can get the whip off the rope as the sled turns away. which can give you a huge boost in speed. just look at wakeboarders. dielon had to hit it right after him at the same speed but he made the landing
i saw the footage from justin it was possibly the flatests biggest scariest airs i have ever seen, honestly i never meet the kidand i know he will be back but fuck that was one hard hit, however i did not see the mike wilson gap jump though so i have no basis for comparison(sorry to bring it up mike)
so simon, stay possitive people are behind you and rehab as hard as you fuckin can, peace, campbell
you guys blaming the sled guy are so dumb. its heaps hard to judge the speed when you are getting towed in cuz if you whip yourself you can be going like 20 mph fastewr than if you just drop the rope. that same guy would have towed others into the jump, and you didnt see anyone else overclear by that much did you. he would have just whipped himself much too hard and not noticed that he was going too fast.
