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.

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!
