Motorsport is full of amazing spectacles, and many of them are directly caused by the various peculiarities of specific race tracks. To wit, Laguna Seca is known for The Corkscrew, Le Mans will always be linked to the Mulsanne Straight, The Nürburgring has The Carousel, and the ability to take Spa's Eau Rouge and Raidillon corners flat-out is what separates the men from the boys.

And then there's The Mountain at Cadwell Park. Though not nearly as well known outside the U.K. as many other race track features, The Mountain may be one of the most exciting places to point a video camera in all of motorsport. It's a small hill that comes up directly after a tight left-to-right S-turn, and it routinely launches the bravest riders high into the sky as they try to get the best drive from the corner possible... and it spits many of them sprawling back out the other side on their bums.

If you're not familiar with The Mountain, we suggest you watch the video after the break. Aim high, boys and girls.

      Simply amazing, I can't image going that fast on a bike much less being airborne risking life and limb on the way down. Much respect for what they do.

        Are you a lawyer? Typically average people don't say "risking life and limb".

          Not a lawyer, not anyone really. But I do wonder what do "average" people say? Something full of expletives followed by bouts of laughter and giggling perhaps?

      Amazing - thanks for sharing that footage. It doesn't even look real - like the bikes just lift on fairy dust. Amazing.

      I can't imagine doing anything like that on my bike. It looks awesome though...

      I've jumped on a sportsbike before...by mistake. I almost shat my pants when i landed. I've never been bold enough to try it again.

      Other places to watch road racing motorcycles in flight: the Pflugplatz (sp?) at the Nurburgring and Ago's leap at the Isle of Man. Flying a sport bike at high speed is not super dramatic from the saddle unless you land crossed up or run out of suspension travel. I have done the latter and I can tell you a flattened exhaust header on a Ducati 748 was not inexpensive. Crotch hurt too!

      Dear Internal Combustion Gods please let the MotoGP, WSBK, and AMA ProRacing series start already... Hell, Nascar, Indy and F1 too. Whether I watch them all or not, there's just nothing on TV this weekend, 'cept some Speed coverage of Targa Newfoundland (which was cool, but not nearly in depth enough.) Is Velocity not airing the WRC events?
