Who's Jamie Pierre? Click here.
That was pretty extreme. But you know that Jamie Pierre no longer holds the world record for biggest cliff drop on skis right?
Yeah…but at least Jamie “meant” to do it.
Whatever, Fred went for it…
“The mind works amazingly fast under stressed situations; breaking or trying to stop was no longer an option, it simply went too fast. If I had tried that I wouldn’t write this. So that left one choice; go for it, and do it right!”
Is there any footage of the actual jump?
all i can say is rad.
Growing up as an avid sledder, I have total respect for this guy sticking his landing.
Though in response to rando, yeah, there’s footage of Fred Syversen launching his air at 80kmh (though it’s not a great angle ‘cuz the next thing you see is a pow puff come off of his bomb hole). I put the link in my first comment. The video is at the bottom of that page. N joy.
