damn !!!
47' was the gold for this event tonight ,ronnie renner cleared the pole by 5' plus over the set distance at 47' tonight to take the gold in moto-x step up challenge .these guys even including brian deegan were setting records like crazy in step up easily clearing ea attempt by 5' or more .the uprights for the step up only had 3 open pegs before maxing out at 50'

next year they will be hitting the steel girders in the roof of the staples center if they keep making this event look easy . i think they will easily clear 50' by next year .they started the challenge tonight at last years wining height of 38' and like i mentioned ea competitor cleared it by 5' to10'

here's the video of ronnie renners win in step up and he's the rider who hurt his tailbone


watch how easily he clears the bar at 47' !!!! ........the more i look at the video his rear tire is at least 3'-4' above the uprights which are maxed out at 50' so i'm guessing he cleared 54' on that record breaking jump

I missed it on tv last night dammit, that is sick though..... I can imagine how much that hurts on the landing lol, we have a small setup up where we ride its only maybe 15 feet and that I can only do 3-4 times before I am to sore to do it again.

And I thought I heard the announcer say something about locking down the front end before the run. Not sure what he ment though.
It's a latch that holds the forks about halfway down the travel. Puts more weight on the front end allowing for harder launch. When the forks compress on take off it releases and allows full travel for landing
