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.
Bicyclists Tyler Bereman and Darryn Durham take a ride on the undulating Red Bull Straight Rhythm course in the darkness of night. We’re gonna guess that the illuminated smoke trails and starfield were enhanced in post-production, but they still look cool.
Drivers Justin Oquendo, Ryan Kibbe, and Ken Block take on Chris Forsberg, Dustin Jones, and Ballistic BJ Baldwin, kicking up dirt for days in the widebody Can-AM Maverick X3 ATV, with its crazy 24″ of suspension travel, 15″ of ground clearance, and speedy 154hp turbo 4 engine.
In 1974, daredevil Evel Knievel infamously failed to jump the Snake River Canyon on a rocket bike. Now, stuntman Eddie Braun has pulled off the stunt, launching 2000ft into the sky off a 10-story ramp, at over 400mph. We’re hoping for some GoPro footage, but so far nothing.
Freestyle BMX phenom Mark Webb pulls off one insane trick after another in this badass film by Jordan Bareham. Bikes are quite lightweight these days, but Webb’s violent flips must still take a lot of strength and balls. The track is Glitch Mob’s Seven Nation Army remix.
