Thats really cool, glad to see you and other Canadians are getting some press. Does Jeff go to UVic? I thought he was in Toronto, but I guess I'm wrong.

Too bad they didn't give a link to bedford unicycles or something of the sort though. Would have been some nice puclicity.

The jump look to be about 30-40 inches by looking at his wheel size.

I'd guess a bit bigger, especially seeing as the bottom of the bench isn't flush with the take-off surface.

Great article for the sport!

WoW, that's a great article that covers the sport as it is and doesn't comment some 'crap' about it.

Yeah, I was really surprised about that, too. Hopefully this'll be a trend of the future, as the sport continues to grow and mature.

Yep. It took him a few tries, but it was most definitely landed. There's video footage of that day somewhere, I'm not sure where.
