Vancouver Biker ‘death-defying’ Vertical Ramp Stunt Gone Viral

If you have visited the profile of Jordie Lunn on Instagram, then you will understand the real meaning of courage and wildness. He is a mountain biker, and believes in pushing the limits.

There was a viral video entitled the death-defying stunt performed on a vertical wooden ramp. Jordie is the guy who planned, designed and performed.

First, he created a vertical wooden ramp, not so wide in length and tied them to a long tree trunk. This was the path that Jordie had to cover on his bicycle. “It’s a pretty crazing feeling, definitely” is what Jordie mentioned about the stunt, who has been riding bikes for more than 2 decades now.

The Man Who Defied Gravity & Hit the Glory

Jordie was not thinking about too many things at the moment. He mentioned how he only focussed on one single thing at a time. The vertical ramp which was laid on the trunk made up to 20m distance, and it was set in a way making 80 degrees angle.

“I was sort of talking to myself throughout the challenge that kept me going, to commit in what I planned”.

Jordie took a trial of the stunt before and initially backed out of it. That’s when he decided to design the path by himself. He told that building the path was the easiest of all, and he knew that he had to make changed to make it work.

Well, after making that swift entry back to the top of the track, Jordie didn’t have any second thoughts except – ‘get on the bike and reach to that point’.

There were cameras set up on different angles that took the shot of Jordie’s successful leap from all the directions. Fortunately, he only suffered minor injuries.

On receiving people’s messages and feedbacks, he just feels overwhelmed by the response.

Asking about the vertical ramp idea, Jordie told that one cannot repeat the stunts, you can’t perform the same thing that has already been tried. He added that you need to stand out, and bring uniqueness in the format.

Britain: Now eRacing Championships going to be held in 2019!

The British audience is all set to witness a Championship (NEVER SEEN BEFORE) in 2019. I am talking about the eRacing competition, where virtual reality will be set LIVE for action! Competition is scheduled for the coming February, where about thousands of the people would participate in the race in a 3D environment.

There will be a bike, and a turbo trainer along, and the Zwift App which is currently used by more than 500,000 users around the world.

Jonathan Rigby, the director of the British Cycling said that the game would inspire people to be more active in life, and it will also spread the importance of being fit. When we talk about eSports, cycling stands a special place as it suits well with more audience and just for the fun of it!

So, what’s the format of the eRacing Championship?

The World Cycling Championship will have a series of qualifying rounds, that will guide towards a live final event. All the top-ranked riders from each gender and age category will proceed to the final round. The finalists will be competing for their corresponding nations, with a few short races, a time trial, and the ultimate elimination round.

Apart from spreading the importance of fitness, it’s one of the smart take-ups in the wild tech market.

Well, this hasn’t been the only attempt. In the month of September, the cycling governing body UCI had put the idea of eSports Championship. Whereas this year Indoor Cycling Race has a prize pot of $50K.

On the other side, many cycle enthusiasts have achieved pro ranks on the Zwift app. On this application, the user has to use the turbo trainer’s data for building up their online avatar.

In 2016, one of the former marathon runners Leah Thorvilson beat about 1200 cyclists on the Zwift Academy Program. After the win, she also got to sign a contract with the Canyon-SRAM team.

The same app also created the Innsbruck World Race Course that helped Dani Rowe practise the game at home, before she travelled to Austria.

Britain has already signed a 2-years partnership deal with the Zwift app with all the necessary training programs for the strong 146K members registered for the game.
