What a beast!
There you go, bro!
Just in time to test it for us!
Yo! I'm just chilling
and I'm leaving for the airport in 2 hours
... because I'm flying to Cape Town!
Szymon's wife: Will you take our girl out so I can dry my hair?
Tosia, you wanna go outside?
I'm a little sad that I'm leaving
because in Poland winter hasn't even started!
I'm chilling wearing just a jumper now
Having my new sunglasses on...
And the Sun is shining beautifully...
Before leaving, I have to pack this beast as well
But I don't want this strip here, I didn't have another 27,5" tire
...so I have to paint it!
It's so nice
What do you need?
a little faster!
Allright, the bike is already packed, let's leave for the airport!
A quick visit in Decathlon, because I have to pick up my contest jersey!
It's so cheap to put logos on your contest jersey here, sick!
I've got my jersey, Let's hurry up then!
I'm at the airport and I've just paid for this bike, which weighs 35 kg
I had to empty my bag a bit in front of the lady to make it 32 kg..
It turned out, that you have to pay additional 250 Euro for the bike if you're flying to Cape Town
We've just arrived in Cape Town
My buddy took me to the farm where the Darkest is
There are some other things here as well
... like jumps, flow etc.
It's gonna be a lot to do here during 2 weeks!
I'm with the boys responsible for all the work here
There we go! There we go, buddy!
What a beast!
You arrived just in time to test it for us!
First time at the spot!
This is one of the smallest jumps
but f***, It's huuuuuuuuge!
still so far away, huh?
I'm going to grab a measure to show you how big these jumps are
But i would say that this kicker is about 5m high
Can you tell me how much time did you spend on this jump?
Just the landing - a week, I think
With 2 machines and 2 dumper trucks
This is him on the top, look how small he seems to be
this is huge
Now between Nick and Sam there is about 20 meters
I'm so stoked that I'm here
I can't say anything more
I'm just smiling all the time here
Klemens has just measured this jump
The kicker is 6m high, the angle is 59*
14 meters long!
We're at a place where I'm not laughing at all...
Clemens has just measured it
The sharkfin kicker is there
...and the landing is here
And the rollercoaster starts here
because you're going full speed to that jump, which is 30m long
And now I don't know if I'm happy or not
But I'll manage...
That's the longest jump
With a little...mmmmmm
With a little mellow kicker
almost 30 meters long
looks pretty good
from the top it looks scary, but from here it's a bit better
Niko is up there
and the kicker is there
full speed, wutututut
First they scared me that there are so many snakes here, black mambas and all
and now I have to walk through these bushes
We're at at a hip, in the middle of the course
You land the hip here, one more jump there,
and without braking, with full speed, you reach the huuuuuuge step-up that I'm going to show you in a sec
Oh, we're at the step-up
This is the landing
It's small and flat
But in order to land here, you have to ride about 60 kph...
and jump from the 7,5 m high kicker
OMG It's so windy, but it's good, it's the first day
the kicker is there
today is the first day
and FORTUNATELY it is windy
because I haven't ridden my downhill bike since Rampage
...and I wouldn't like to jump such big jumps at first...
I'd rather chill after the flight,
put my bike together without any hurry
and ride something smaller :)
Fortunately, there are many options to ride here!
We're back down here, next to one the last jumps
And it is SICK!
so good, so big
I bet it doesn't look so big on your screen
Allright, I've visited the jumps already
They're sick, the line is unbelievable!
and the view from this garden!
What a spot, sick
Now I'm gonna put my bike together and ride sth smaller
to get prepared for tomorrow's tests on the BIG JUMPS!
The bike is ready!
