I just think about the guy on a bike who died trying to do it. It looks like Way has built the right kind of ramp to do the jump though and will probably land this one without the sure death that might be expected.

Maybe we'll be able to see the ramp from space.

One on One, I'll bet you could jump the Great Wall on your coker.

But if you decide to do it, create a blue web site. The red on that one hurts my eyes.

That could be my piece offering to the chinese people. Pieces of me scattered everywhere.

Click on the Videos Section of the Danny does China site and you'll see all 5 videos. He made it on the second jump and did it 3 more times.

I've heard of unicyclists riding ON the wall but not jumping over. I bet someone here has pictures of that.

I decided I wasn't getting up in the middle of the night to watch it live so I'm glad to see that Danny made the jump ok. I met him last summer at my cousin's wedding, he's a nice guy.

No, you can't laf when he breaks 43.5 bones because he successfully completed the jump four times.

i dunno, with the on ramp and the off ramp both going to about the same height as the wall, why isn't this just advertised as 'Watch Danny gap 5.8 meters!'
