"This was the greatest jump of my career!"

A Tacoma, Washington man has successfully jumped the Grand Canyon---well, a piece of it, anyhow.
Casey Jones has been planning the jump over a portion of the south rim for five years. Although the jump wasn't a record breaker for length, it was for height. Jones jumped a linear distance of only 245 feet, eight feet less than the 253 foot record. However, the drop from the centerpoint of the bike's trajectory was 1,461 feet.
Asked if it looked like a long way down from the top, Jones retorted, "I wouldn't know. I had my eyes closed."
Jones plans another stunt in Seattle within the next few months, though details are sketchy.
"I've always wanted to ride right off the roof of the Space Needle and parachute into downtown Seattle," Jones grinned. "Maybe that one's in my future."
Videotape rights to the Grand Canyon jump are being sold to the highest bidder. The starting bid was $110,000.00.
"Taxes and expenses will eat the vast majority of any amount like that," said Jones. "But it'll still leave me with a good day's wages.
