Australian motorcycle long-jumper Robbie Maddison said from his Melbourne hospital bed that Thursday's crash landing wouldn't deter him from trying to improve on his world-record 98-metre leap later this month. ( dpa )
A gust of wind blew him off balance while attempting a handlebar handstand trick. He crash landed, mangling his bike and injuring his hip.
A spokesman told Australia's AAP news agency the California-based Maddison would be back in Melbourne on March 29 for another mammoth leap.
The 26-year-old professional motocross rider will attempt a 106-metre jump to better the mark he set in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve.
After her son broke the previous mark of 84 metres, Debbie Maddison said "Robbie's had more than 13 lives and we count each day we have as a blessing."
