The stunning footage, which shows the rider leaping across the 60 Freeway in Moreno Valley, quickly went viral after being uploaded to the Instagram account of Kyle Katsandris. The video has so far been viewed almost 90,000 times, amassing some 800 plus comments.
“This dude is the man,” wrote one user. “Solid. Couldn't imagine being a driver that day and wondering 'whoa...did I just see a dirt bike jump over the interstate?'" wrote another amazed netizen.
The death-defying stunt has caught the attention of the California Highway Patrol and Riverside County Sheriff’s Department who are now investigating the footage.
