Location: Las Vegas
Date: Dec. 31, 2008
Distance: 96 vertical feet
Complex Says: Robbie Maddison, a.k.a. that Australian dude who does crazy motorcycle tricks on New Year's and other random days, followed up his 322-foot, record-setting jump from the year before with this crazy vertical leap. Going 96 feet up into the air, Maddison landed onto the Arc de Triomphe in front of Paris Las Vegas. As a result, he suffered a gash to his hand. Eh, it was worth it. We mean, did you see his wifey?!
