Glamis Canal Would you Jump it?

Has anybody or would anybody try jumping the Canal in Glamis with their revolt? There is a youtube video of a guy dragging his quad out of the water. So it made me think. I sold my revolt so I couldn't try but my fear wouldn't be wrecking on the other side but coming up short and hitting the wall.

Easy in a rail or on a dirt bike but I don't know about doing it with a revolt.

It's just a momentum thing.
Speed & the right launch ramp angle will get you over.
Do some gap testing & see how it fly's

Re: Glamis Canal Would you Jump it?

I'm pretty sure the Revolt could do it, I would need a lot more seat time and ball's to make it happen though. lot's of practice and confidence in a revolt so far I haven't seen revolts jumps on video that would clear the canal yet. Take off would be ok but the nailing the landing is another, its steep . most place around gecko anyway.

I watched a guy on a bike do it a couple of times but he was a pro rider or freestyle , he made it look as easy as that long travel car, I still working on getting all four off more then a foot. I'm sure there's a guy on here that drags hit nut's around with the seat time.
