Video: Rider takes overjumping to another level, tangles with tree

Boosted jump looks like something out of a video game


Almost every rider we know has either come up short or landed long on a jump, but rare is the occasion where you go too high—or at least THIS high. All we can say is we’re glad this guy seems ok…oh and, check yourself, before you wreck yourself.

Tree Jump

Despite what appears to be the rider tumbling several times in mid-air, we think it’s just his GoPro which dislodged and tumbled to the ground.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
