During the 2017 Monster Jam World Finals XVIII, driver Lee O’Donnell was zipping around the dirt in his beastly ride, The Mad Scientist, when he pulled off a stunt never before performed in a monster truck – a front flip. Naturally, he went on to win the freestyle competition.
THE BEST Stunts
Attaching a couple of canisters of pressurized nitrous oxide to a desk chair probably isn’t the best idea, but that didn’t stop these guys from Street Outlaws from doing it anyhow. We sure hope the dude in the chair didn’t eat lunch before he did this idiotic, yet hilarious stunt.
Do you hate waiting in traffic? The Hum Rider solves this problem by widening its wheels to ride between the lanes, then rising up about nine feet in the air to drive right over traffic jams. We want one, but sadly it’s just a promotional stunt for Verizon’s Hum car gadgets.
Austrian downhill cyclist Markus Stöckl recently zipped down a steep slope in the Atacama region of Chile to set a new world’s record for speed on a mountain bike – 167 km/h, or about 103.79 mph. It took Max about 11 seconds to reach his top speed on the way down.
It takes a minute to get to the action in this clip of rollerblader Grigoriy Usenko tearing up some MTB slopestyle ramps in the woods outside of Krasnodar, Russia. But you’ll want to watch those first 60 seconds too, packed with cool motion time-lapse footage of the nearby city.
(PG-13: Language) Daniel Bodin pulled off one of the most insane freestyle tricks we’ve ever seen on a snowmobile. Somehow he managed to flip his machine upside-down not once, but twice. Watch the dizzying POV footage first, then see how it looked to the outside world.
You might have to travel back in time to 1992 to find a parody of Quantum Leap relevant, but that takes nothing away from Tanner Foust’s mad drifting skills, the insane exhaust notes, and lung-filling dose of tire smoke and dust you’re in store for in the next six minutes.
When you think about it, a drone is basically a tiny helicopter with multiple blades, so why not build a huge drone capable of puling or lifting a human? Recently, Casey Neistat and his friends put together just that, then headed to Finland’s Santa Claus Village for a little snowboarding.
We’re pretty sure we’d be caught by airport security if we tried to pull any of the shenanigans that Red Bull freerunner Jason Paul used in this video. Regardless, we’re just glad that somebody finally replaced O.J. Simpson as the new king of running to catch a flight.
Danny MacAskill shares behind the scenes footage of the insane final stunt from his short film Cascadia, in which he jumped his bike off of a building and into the sea. It’s a fascinating look at the mental games daredevils must play before they risk life and limb for entertainment.
To celebrate the first ever World Trick Shot Day (who knew?), Harlem Globetrotter Buckets Blakes headed to the top of the 58-story Tower of the Americas in San Antonio, and took aim at the basket far below. We have no idea how he worked the wind into his calculations.
To show off the precision and predictability of their powertrains, Volvo Trucks turned one of their big rigs into a tow boat for a paraglider. Watch flyer Guillaume Galvani and driver Louise Marriott work in perfect harmony to pull off this dangerous stunt without a hitch.
Rider Fabio Wibmer rode his bike along a railing not much wider than its tires. But that’s not the impressive part – it’s that he did it along the guard rail overlooking Austria’s Kölnbreinsperre – a dam that rises about to a height of about 200 meters (~656 feet).
“That’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Stunt driver Ben Collins (formerly The Stig) successfully drove a Range Rover Sport down Mürren, Switzerland’s Inferno ski course, with a 7100+ft. descent, slopes up to 75%, over ice and loose terrain, at speeds up to 96 mph.
