Great wall of death

As stunts go, attempting to jump a mountain bike over the Great Wall of China looks like one of the more unlikely. And so it proved to be. Saturday’s Times contains a report of the death of Wang Jiaxiong, who misjudged his attempt to jump the wall. He used a launch ramp 80 yards long and 120ft high but parted company with the bike in the air.

The Times’ picture report can be found here (you may need to register with their site to see it).
