Aussie Robbie “Maddo” Maddison just upped the ante on crazy stunts.

Stunt motorbike rider Maddison, who has a history of sensational jumps and doubled for Daniel Craig in the James Bond movie “Skyfall,” jumped from a ski jump ramp at Olympic Park in Park City, Utah.

Maddison was estimated to have been traveling 71 MPH and jumped a distance of 374 feet. He also set a world record with a vertical drop of 185 feet, or about 18 stories.

Before the jump off the Olympic ski jump, Maddison warmed up on the bobsleigh track used in the 2002 Winter Olympics held in Salt Lake City.

On Dec. 31, 2008, Maddison sped up a street-level ramp to land on top of a 96-foot-high replica of the Arc de Triomphe in Las Vegas. Seven months later, he jumped over Tower Bridge in London, while it was opened by 25 feet.
