Update:

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).
