Australian stunt Motocrosser Robbie Maddison not only jumped over the 85-metre wide Corinth Canal at height of nearly 100 metres in Greece on Thursday, but he also had a bigger hurdle to overcome: fear.
Motocross Freestyle, with breathtaking tricks such as flips performed at heights of up to three storeys high, is one the worlds most dangerous sports. Robbie Maddison is one of the worlds best in FMX.

Many Motocrossers have wanted to jump across the Corinth Canal, which built in 1893. But the Australian was the first to succeed. He speed his Honda 500 (2 Stroke) up through a turn-filled approach past a pool, across a soccer pitch and past a chicken coop to a speed of 125 km/h. On Thursday morning (around 8am Local Time) he accelerated up a ramp over the canal some 80 metres below and landed safely on a mound set up on the other side of the canal. At his apogee Maddison was 95 metres above the canals surface.
