Same issue off rollers. I am getting really mad at myself here.
Try this (I tried it last weekend, worked great):

As you hit the transition, crouch. As you come up the ramp on the jump, gradually straighten up, timed so that as you hit the lip you'll be extended as much as you want to be (not necessarily standing straight). You don't even have to put a lot of effort into it. It just seems to send you into a higher orbit.
