Rozov leaps! (Photo courtesy YouTube)

Earlier we had a story about a Frenchman who rode a rocket powered mountain bike to a new worlds record speed of 163 MPH.He’s been outdone!

An extreme sports enthusiast has carried out the world’s highest base jump – off the north face of Mount Everest. Russian Valery Rozov 48, spent more than two years preparing for the jump, much of it on developing a special new wingsuit. It took Rozov four days to climb from the base camp to the jumping location, which was at an altitude of 7,220 meters (23,690ft). The initial moments of the leap were the most critical as it took longer than usual at high altitude to make the transition from freefall to flying. But after falling for a few seconds, he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of around 125 mph along the north face before landing safely on the Rongbuk glacier.
