X Games Austin 2014: 11 Skaters, BMXers and Motocross Riders You Should Watch This Weekend

This lot will all be worth tuning in for...

Tons of people have broken records at the X Games over the years, but few can be as visually impressive as the one Ronnie Renner broke in 2012 when he jumped a motocross bike 50 feet up in the air.

Officially the bar in the motocross high jump comp (or as the X Games call it, Moto X Step Up) was set at 47 feet. But we reckon he cleared that by a foot or two… or three. So we’re calling it 50.

Either way you’d have to be a proper pedant not to be blown away by that jump – it’s frickin’ huge! We can’t wait to see what he pulls out the bag this year in the step up event, especially as he’s going up against his long-standing rival Matt Buyten again.
