Catching a car at 100 km/h (63 miles/h) to train for the reception (Taig will reach the same speed just before crashing into an airbag).
Everything you need to know about the Taig Khris, M6 Mobile Mega Jump, which will take place in 18 days in Paris.
Taig Khris is showing us some hightlights of his career (first video) and then presents us his 40m Eiffel Tower drop (second video). The current world record for a drop is kept by the skateboarder Danny Way. Both Videos are in french.
As announced on this post, Taig Khris will drop from the Eiffel Tower on May 28-29-30 2010. This is a 40m drop from the first floor, Taig will then land on a 25m high quarter pipe.
I’m sure sure everyone saw the green “thingie” at the end of the quarter.That green stuff is a giant airbag ; there are not enough space to do it another way. When landing on the Quarter Pipe, Taig will be at 70 km/h to finally reach 100km/h and then crash on the airbag (1 kilometer (km) = 0.6 mile).
Taig Khris recently did an Interview with Premiere (french language).
It seems that Taig Khris will drop from the first floor of the Eiffel Tower (40m drop) ; he now has the authorizations from the town: a 25m halfpipe will be built under the tower.
Other news: Taig Khris will be in the french Broadcast Koh Lanta, which is a french remake of the well know Survivor TV Reality Show. A team of french athletes will fight against veteran winners of the show. He is not on the official website for the moment, and was added at the last minute.
Thanks Momo Sylla!
