Re: Tower Bridge leap

there is a program on TV tonight
MOTORING: The Great London Jump: Robbie Maddison
On: five (5)    (starting in 52 minutes)
Time: 19:30 to 20:00 (30 minutes long)
Special programme in which daredevil stuntman and motocross star Robbie Maddison attempts a spectacular feat in the heart of London. Robbie's previous stunts include jumping the length of an American football field and scaling the heights of the replica Arc de Triomphe in Las Vegas - but leaping over London's Tower Bridge may pose his toughest challenge to date.
(Followed By Five News Update, Subtitles)

Re: Tower Bridge leap

Allegedly - even a LT bus did it many moons ago - albeit when the bridge was only just starting to lift and before they put barriers in

Re: Tower Bridge leap

a shorter version, and a lot of others, was also in the Chan 5 program - you should have watched it instead of Coronation Slum

Re: Tower Bridge leap

It does beggar the question: er! why?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Tower Bridge leap

given the number of broken bones he has had, I would think it is the lack of brain cells.

in the Tower Bridge case, his girl friend saw the bridge and said how about that, Plus Red Bull has to much to give away
