Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

DAREDEVIL ACTS #2

These two pictures are courtesy of Buckles Web Log!

I wonder what strange name the BMX riders would give this trick????


BICYCLE RAMP JUMP
For years I have heard stories of P.J.Riggins, whose ramp was supposedly nearly a city block long, and occasionally have seen pictures of the act, the only difference was a gap in the ramp that he would jump on the way down. When he made the jump at the bottom the bike would land in the net, and he would dive into a water tank. I have no idea if there is any connection between Riggins & Van Norman


LOOP THE LOOP BICYCLE RAMP
For the life of me I can't see how he got from the long ramp to the loop, maybe I'm missing something.
