Default Robbie Madison Arc de Triomphe jump

I must have been living under a rock because I didn't see this til last night.

Does anyone have a link to a vid or article about how jumps like these are set up?
How are these bikes set up differently than regular motocross bikes? How much suspension travel?

I did not understand why you were asking about increased travel, etc....then I kept watching and saw him drop like a rock off the top of the Arc. Unreal. The jump up to the top didn't impress me that much...more of a trajectory problem, but riding off the edge like that with such a long drop down to the ramp...that's nuts.

That landing looked rough initially. Impressive.
