Mountain Bikers Tempt Fate On Dangerous White Line Trail

Adrenaline junkies, thrill seekers and even regular office-goers these days are constantly looking for new ways to have a crazy time trying their hand at sports which range from the fun ones to the absolutely insane! Extreme sports act as the perfect way for people to try out things that they would otherwise never even dream of doing. All for the adrenaline rush from pushing themselves to conquer their biggest fears by defying all logic and sense of reasoning and just taking the plunge, quite literally! There are many extreme sports that could help bring out the adventurer in you. There is a fine line between being adventurous and completely insane and we are pretty sure that daredevils will ride their bikes on it, just for fun! Footage shows Nate Hills riding the dangerous White Line into Little Horse, located in Sedona, Arizona, with Kyle Mears. Watch the incredible journey as it unfolds! We see Nate and his fellow enduro racer Kyle ride the white line zig and zag down the hills in Arizona and our blood freezes in our veins. We expect either of them to slip accidentally and we cringe on every turn. However for these two, the white line is just another pavement, a street with no cars, one that they can ride freely without interruptions. Nate Hills is an enduro racer and adventurer. From the lung-searing high mountains of Colorado to the high glacier covered mountains of Bolivia, Nate Hills pushes the human limit of what is possible with the bike . We can feel the adrenaline rush only by watching this video! Enduro is a stage-race format where the winner is the rider who accumulates the lowest combined time from the timed downhill sections. Enduros typically take place over one or two days, however, week-long competitions also exist such as the Trans Provence (France), the Andes Pacifico (Chile), and the Pisgah Stage Race (United States). A typical one-day enduro consists of 3 to 5 timed stages which take place on technically demanding, generally descending terrain, and often with sections of singletrack. These stages are linked by predominantly ascending "transfer" stages. Although a rider's performance on the physically demanding transfer stages does not affect his or her result, they often have a time-limit, or a latest allowed arrival-time for the start of the next stage. (source: Wikipedia) According to the Enduro World Series 2015 Rule Book, a minimum of four special stages is required per event, a minimum of three different courses must be used, and the results will be calculated by adding all stage times together for each rider. Check out this bike going down a road at an insane speed . In another video, watch as daredevil Michal Kollbek rides the White Line as an attempt to conquer the infamous trail and capture the entire thing on camera! He later said that riding the White Line was one of the scariest stunts he has ever performed while on bike, but he was confident that he can pull it off, because it's thrills like this that wake him up everyday!

Landing a jet ski back flip with no hands!10s

Landing a jet ski back flip with no hands!

With the boring routines in our everyday lives, it shouldn't be all too surprising to see people doing extreme things to get out of their routines. Nowadays there are so many outdoor activities that you can do to get away from the boredom, everyone can find something to satisfy their cravings – mountain biking, trekking, waterskiing, sky diving...the list is endless. Gary Burtka took extreme sporting to a whole new level. Watch as the avid fan of jet skis makes a backward flip and lands without controlling his Backie Chan watercraft! That is wicked! We imagine it took hours of practice to be able to pull that off Here's what Gary can tell us about himself on his site, www.garyburtka.com : “I began legally riding a Kasawaki X-2 in the late 80s after completing a boating safety coarse at the age of 12. For years I enjoyed the freedom and experience that a personal watercraft could bring me as a regular consumer rider. In the summer of 1993 I was introduced to Tommy Nuttall Jr through his father, Tommy Nuttall Sr. (a family friend and owner of the local Big Boy's that we frequented). I watched one of Tommy's (Pride Performance) shows and eagerly participated in my first competitive event just a few weeks later in Wyandotte, MI in August of 93. I rode my X-2 in closed-course and amateur freestyle. I was hooked!"

Man builds replica boomerang from 'Mad Max' film1m15s

Man builds replica boomerang from 'Mad Max' film

'BoomerangsbyVic' has created a replica boomerang used in the late 1981 movie 'Mad Max: Road Warrior'. Check out it's beautiful flight! All boomerangs made by Vic from 'BoomerangsbyVic' are handcrafted with 10 ply 5 mm finish birch. His hand-crafted returning boomerangs can be purchased online and make great gifts for someone you know that loves boomerangs. The boomerang is a tool made and used by the Indigenous Australians for hunting. Typically constructed as a flat airfoil and when thrown is designed to spin about an axis that is perpendicular to the direction of its flight In terms of the use of the weapon in the Mad Max franchise, the Mad Max wikia page writes: “A once widespread tool used by the indigenous Australians for hunting and recreation, the boomerang has proved its worth following the collapse of western civilization. One notable user of the boomerang was the Feral Kid. His returning boomerang was made of chrome and was notably weighty, having the ability to embed itself in the skull of a victim. One such victim was a member of Lord Humungus' Marauders - The Golden Youth - who consequently suffered extensive head trauma and death." You might not be able to purchase the chrome boomerang like the one Vic made, but you can certainly purchase one of his wooden creations, so feel free to check out his site and share this video with your friends!
