The Aussies Have The Daredevil Market Cornered

First, we had Australian skateboarder Jake Brown surviving a scary 45 foot fall onto a skate ramp after completing a 720.

Now, Australian motorcyclist Robbie Maddison has secured the world motorcycle jumping record. The jump actually occured on December 31, the 40th anniversary of Evel Knievel's legendary Caesars stunt, and covered just over 322 feet.

Yes, while you were watching games being played on football fields, Robbie Maddison was jumping one.
