Eighty metres and 30 centimetres. That's how far Cassiar, B.C. native Ross Mercer sailed off of a ramp over the frozen lands of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
In an official world record attempt at the world's largest snowmobile terrain park, the Compound, Mercer gunned the engine on his Ski-doo and nailed the ramp at 126 km/h. Mercer shattered the previous record of 74.6 m.
If you haven't heard of professional snowmobile jumping, count yourself a member of a large club. The sport is small, but growing.
