Shame the van doesn't have a Red Cross on the side - he could head straight to hospital.

What a looney ...

looks edited to me - i don't think the rider would be too happy to take that impact. but then i guess the movement of the van would absorb some of the force. it still would be a terrible landing to try and make (?). i'm just sceptical as we all know how these things can be done with adobe after effects, etc.

if it is real then i salute the rider.

I had the same thoughts first :)

But there are plenty of great drivers out there than can land on the spot and with some stunt knowledge (just pack the van full of foamy plastic and stuff) this could be a calculated risk.

well, i've certainly had to eat humble pie in the past when saying these sorts of clips look fake. hard to say these days what's real.

i'll go with the flow and accept it as genuine. so, that's an incredible landing.
