   "I'm totally blown away that I went 59 feet," said Renner, who was shooting for at least 50 feet. "I can't believe the fan turnout. Everything was absolutely perfect. The fifth and sixth ones, I was giving it everything I had."

  Ronnie Renner went just over 54 feet on his third jump, then was just under 53 feet on his fourth attempt.After going just more than 53 feet on his fifth jump, he decided to do a last jump for the crowd.

   "All or nothing," he said. "I knew what I needed to do on the last one, all for the crowd. Way past my goal of 50 feet. I'm just pumped on this. Never jump when they say, 'One more time.' But I'm glad I did it ó five feet higher and I rode away to talk about it."

  Renner rode up an 18-foot quarterpipe and made a sweeping, 180-degree arc that brought him down onto a landing ramp measuring 25 feet high and 64 feet wide.

  The progression of Rennerís jumps is as follows:
   Jump 1) 45 feet 9 inches
   Jump 2) 50 feet 6 inches
   Jump 3) 54 feet 7 inches
   Jump 4) 52 feet 9 inches
   Jump 5) 53 feet 2 inches
   Jump 6) 59 feet 2 inches

  The custom quarterpipe and landing ramp used by Ronnie Renner were designed and built specifically for Rennerís Red Bull Experiment. The ramp was modeled on the traditional dirt-based quarterpipe design, and built to specifications calculated from a dirt test site.

   Fabricated from galvanised steel and plywood, the next generation modular system allows maximum versatility of transport and set-up.

   Designed and built by Jack Murphy Productions from a Dane Herron Industries concept, the quarterpipe landing ramp measures 64 feet wide and 25 feet tall. The ramp is the first of its kind and took approximately 24 hours to set up on the pier.

   It was the third jump in the Red Bull Experiment series, following record-setting performances of fellow motocross rider Robbie Maddison and BMX star Kevin Robinson.

   Ronnie Renner is a respected freestyle motocross veteran, whose credentials include a gold medal in Step-Up at the 2007 Summer X Games and until recently, the Step-Up world record (35 feet high). Step-Up is similar to a high jump, with riders attempting to jump their motorcycles over bars at ever-increasing heights.

  Maddison jumped the length of a football field on New Year's Eve, clearing 322 feet, 7 1/2 inches at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
   On June 12, Robinson soared 27 feet above the lip of a huge quarterpipe in New York's Central Park to set the BMX big air world record.
