Thomas Pagés is a Crazy Person

“When failure means certain death, you have to succeed.” -Anders

Thomas Pagés sees a 560-foot cliff in the French Alps and decides to jump his bike off of it. Check that, Thomas Pagés sees a 560-foot cliff in the French Alps and decides to double front flip his bike off of it. If it works, nothing happens. If it doesn’t work, he dies.

Pagés threw in a superman seat grab and a cliffhanger just for shits and giggles before hitting the big jump. Dude hits the ramp, flip once, flip twice, rip cord.

And he stuck the landing. One parachute for man, one parachute for machine. Neither landed in a tree. Neither crashed to the ground. It was perfect.

I’ve been riding dirtbikes since I was four years old. At no point, AT NO POINT, have I wanted to launch myself off of a cliff.

Red Bull sponsored the jump, because of course they did. Thomas Pagés: Lunatic.
