Ronnie Renner sets world record for highest motorcycle jump

Ronnie Renner world record

Last night Ronnie Renner set the world record for the highest motorcycle jump ever: 59 feet, 2 inches. Ronnie's goal was to reach a height of 50 feet, which he exceeded on his third attempt, but he decided to go for broke with a sixth and final jump to please the huge crowd at Santa Monica pier. Speaking of that last jump, Ronnie said, "I knew what I needed to do on the last one, all for the crowd. Way past my goal of 50 feet. I'm just pumped on this. Never jump when they say, 'One more time.' But I'm glad I did it five feet higher and I rode away to talk about it." An 18-foot quarterpipe was used for take off, while a huge landing ramp measuring 25 feet high by 64 feet wide was used for the landing. Ronnie's jump carried him through a 180-degree arc that brought him down facing the way he'd come.
