70mph sounds about right.

Umm hit that sized kicker at 70mph and your in serious trouble, that'd be way too fast. I dont know actually what speed you'd need, Its just something you get used to.

There is no one given number to hit a feature in the park. Some people are rediculously good and can walk up to the feature and just hop off of it, some people need some good speed to clear it. Depends on the persons skill, and what you're hitting.

70mph is definitely not needed to clear a kicker. Unless you want to land in the bar...

Not sure on the speeds, you're moving but definitely not going balls out.

joking about the 70mph just ment its unclear how fast you should go... its all feel. Thats why even pros will ride up to the tip and scope it out before deciding how to hit it.

^about that, jsut watch people run up to it, or ride to the side of them (far enough away, duh, at least 20 feet away) to get a feel for how fast you should go.

I think you have to ride fast enough to break the space time continuum therebye creating a wormhole that lands you safely on the other side of the jump. I could be wrong though...



*In otherwords, no idea*
