 Highest jump on a motorcycle-world record set by Ronnie Renner

  CHICAGO, IL, USA -- Freestyle motocross star Ronnie Renner launched himself an astounding 63 feet 5 inches above the ground
-setting the new world record for the highest motorcycle jump off a quarterpipe.
   Photo: He launched himself by riding up a 22-foot quarter pipe and whipped his 250-pound motorcycle through a sweeping, 180-degree arc to his left that carried him upside down and brought him down onto a steel landing ramp that's 31-feet, 9-inches tall and 64-feet wide. (enlarge photo)  

  Its been crazy. Im so pumped to have done it, Renner said afterward. What a killer vibe! All these people coming out to see me and they were psyched. I could hear the crowd cheering.
  
   Renner's highest jump was officially measured from the top of the 22-foot-tall quarterpipe, as 41 feet 5 inches from the top of the ramp (63 feet 5 inches high, total).

   Last summer, with an amusement park as a backdrop, Renner established the Guinness world record for the highest jump on a motorcycle on a quarter pipe, reaching 59 feet, 2 inches at the Santa Monica pier.

   A typical big-air freestyle jump reaches 35ft in height.

   Ronnie Renner is a respected freestyle motocross veteran whose credentials include a gold medal in Moto X Step Up at the 2007 Summer X Games, and the Step Up world record. He will participate in the X Games next weekend, competing in the Moto X Step Up and Best Whip events.
