More Maddo Awesomeness

Australian freestyle motocross star Robbie Maddison successfully jumped over the 279-foot wide Corinth Canal at height of more than 300 feet above the canal surface in Greece

Chalk it up as another successful jump for FMX legend and "stunt" jumper Robbie 'Maddo' Maddison. While we were sleeping here in the states, Maddo mounted his Honda CR500, eyed up the ramp massive Red Bull ramp, and crushed yet another insane leap -- this time over the Corinth Canal in Greece. Obviously the hardcore moto fans knew he would stomp it, but if he hadn't, the outcome could've been grim. Not like it would do anything since he was traveling at around 75 mph (125 KM/H), but Maddo was sporting a parachute ala Travis Pastrana and his jump into the Grand Canyon.

Could you imagine hitting a huge kicker at 125 km/h?!!!!! Once again Robbie Maddison in a BADASS
