Bournemouth Pier Mx Jump
A fearless motocross rider has become the first person to successfully jump Bournemouths historic pier. Dan Whitby, an extreme freestyle motocross (FMX) extraordinaire, made the historic leap on Sunday afternoon. Crowds watched with bated breath as Norfolk-born Dan cleared the landmark with a backdrop of beautiful blue skies. The daredevil had to soar to a height of 60ft on his 100kg bike to ensure he made the 80ft gap.
