Skiing at 117 mph

British Olympic Skier Graham Bell had the brass balls to skitch behind a speeding Jaguar XF Sportbrake on the ice in Arjeplog, Sweden, setting a new record for fastest towed speed on skis – an average of 189 km/h or about 117 mph.

Drone Buzzes Freight Train

NURK FPV and sponsor FPVDirect present some of the sweetest first-person view drone footage we’ve seen, as the pilot deftly maneuvers a quadcopter through a bridge, alongside and over a train, and turns in some thrilling loops and tricks the whole way along.

Jackie Chan Jumps over Fences

Jackie Chan Jumps over Fences

Jackie Chan’s new movie The Foreigner comes out very soon, and looks like a wild ride. To celebrate its impending release, editor Jim Casey of The Solomon Society compiled a reel of some of Jackie’s finer moments jumping and climbing over various barriers.

Water-powered Jet Trike

Water-powered Jet Trike

You’d think that a 3-wheeler powered by water wouldn’t go very fast, but as we recently learned, liquid can generate some crazy force when under pressure. Riding atop a 6,000 PSI water tank, François Gissy was able to go from 0 to 62 mph in 0.55s with a 162mph top speed.

Slip ‘N Slide BASE Jump

Slip ‘N Slide BASE Jump

Devin “Supertramp” Graham assembled a group of daredevils, who donned parachutes, then slid down a soap-covered Slip ‘N Slide off of a 500 foot cliff for this epic stunt. The Subaru product placement is a bit in your face, but Devin’s gotta pay the bills too. BTS vid here.

Fireworks Car

Fireworks Car

To celebrate the 4th of July, the guys from The Hoonigans took their bargain-priced American flag-wrapped junk car and turned it into a dangerous looking fireworks show on wheels. We’re a bit perplexed that they chose to use a German car to celebrate America’s birthday.

50 MPH Drift Trikes

50 MPH Drift Trikes

DevinSupertramp captured this awesome footage of the Rad Cows as they show off their homebuilt drift trikes, which they ride downhill at speeds up to 50 mph – without brakes. It’s also an amazing promo for Samsung, since the video was shot entirely on a Galaxy S8.

Doing Donuts on National Donut Day

Doing Donuts on National Donut Day

After you wolf down your requisite dose of fried dough and sugar today, sit back and enjoy some donuts of the automotive variety, courtesy of pro driver RJ Anderson, as he spins circles on his BFGoodrich® Tires. As Anderson proves, the best donuts are the ones you make yourself.

Skydiving from a Drone

Skydiving from a Drone

A while back, we watched CaseyNeistat hang from a drone that lifted him off the ground, but this feat is even more impressive, as Aerones used their 28-propellor drone to lift skydiver Ingus Augstkalns from a tower to a height of ~1082 ft before he lept off. (Thanks Einarr!)

Man vs. Mousetraps in Slo-Mo

Man vs. Mousetraps in Slo-Mo

The Slow-Mo Guys set up one of their more ridiculous stunts yet, packing a trampoline with 1000 fully-armed mousetraps, then Dan jumped into the middle of them. As painful as you’d think it might have been, The Backyard Scientist’s rig would have hurt much more.

RJ Anderson: XP1K4

RJ Anderson: XP1K4

UTVUnderground and MadMedia let off-roader RJ Anderson go absolutely bonkers in a highly-modified 2017 Polaris RZR XP Turbo EPS UTV, taking on treacherous terrain and manmade ramps, culminating in a sideways ride around the WALL OF DEATH, and an epic backflip.

The Last Viper

The Last Viper

Pennzoil pays tribute to the end of an era – with some epic footage of Rhys Millen driving the 645hp Dodge Viper ACR, doing what it does best, firing flames from its exhaust pipes, smoking tires, going sideways, and even catching a little air. Fare thee well, Viper.

BJ Baldwin: Recoil 4

BJ Baldwin: Recoil 4

Off-road race driver BJ Baldwin roars across the streets and jungles of Cuba in his 850 hp Toyota/Toyo Trucks trophy truck on an epic mission that sees him burning rubber, putting his suspension system to the test, and catching insane amounts of air along the way.

Monster Jam Front Flip

Monster Jam Front Flip

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.

Nitro Chair

Nitro Chair

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.

Traffic-skipping SUV

Traffic-skipping SUV

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.

Surfing Nazaré’s Mega Swells

Surfing Nazaré’s Mega Swells

Red Bull presents a mindblowing compilation of footage of daring surfers riding (and wiping out) on some of the incredible waves at Nazaré, Portugal, which can reach heights of 100 feet or more during peak swells.

Subaru Bobsled Run

Subaru Bobsled Run

Subaru recently asked rally driver Mark Higgins to perform an insane stunt – driving a WRX STI down (and up) the Olympic bobsled run in St. Moritz. Along the way, the car took a few bumps and scrapes, but the driving was top-notch given the extremely tight course.

Insane Kayak Ride

Insane Kayak Ride

Watch as daredevil kayakers Rush Sturges and Ben Marr ride through a drainage canal that’s just inches wider than their tandem boat, as they take a thrilling and dangerous ride that could have easily snapped their paddles – or their bones – if anything went wrong.

Jetpack Skiing 2.0

Jetpack Skiing 2.0

Ski-cross world champion Filip Flisar amps up his speed across the powder with a little help from a jet-powered backpack. With the pack on, he can hit speeds north of 75 mph, though the temperatures on his back can reach over 1500°F.

Log Machine Bull Ride

Log Machine Bull Ride

If you think getting on one of those bull riding machines at a country bar is a recipe for disaster, get a load of this video from The Dudesons – who saddled up and went for a ride on a tree harvester machine in place of the bull.

World’s Fastest Mountain Biker

World’s Fastest Mountain Biker

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.

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

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.

Snowmobile Double Backflip

Snowmobile Double Backflip

(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.

MotoGP Ski Run

MotoGP Ski Run

Equipped with deadly looking spikes on his tires (and balls of steel), MotoGP champ Marc Márquez managed to race his bike uphill on a snow and ice-covered ski slope on the Hahnenkamm mountain in Kitzbühel, Austria.

Snowboard Backflip on Car

Snowboard Backflip on Car

Swedish daredevils Rackartygarna pulled off what’s quite possibly the world’s first snowboard backflip on a moving car. The vehicle was going at a snail’s pace, but the driver still could have had snowboard sprinkled with glass for dinner.
