This guy’s run started out by putting his RZR on its lid, and then just before it tumbled down the hill he managed to get it back on four wheels and drive away. We’re not sure if we’d classify that as a RZR fail or not but it certainly could have been ugly.
It’s obvious from this video that the ground is pretty wet, so it’s no surprise that this Jeep Wrangler lost traction while climbing up this hill. Where the driver messed up is turning the steering wheel while sliding backwards. File this one under “what not to do.”
Racing supercross is not for the faint of heart. Professional racers make it look easy on TV, but in real life the jumps are nearly vertical, and supercross whoops can send you tumbling in a hurry. Just ask this guy.
We’ve seen some great Jeep Cherokee jumps in our day, but we’ve never seen one completely submerged in water upon landing. Apparently the driver was planning for a wild ride because he had the good sense to strap on a helmet. Watch this Jeep Cherokee take on a pond.
There are close calls… and then there’s this. This dirt bike lands on a Jeep after sailing over 100 feet through the air off of a dune. This could have gone wrong in so many ways for both parties. That’s why its always a good idea to have spotters watching the take off and the landing when jumping, particularly in the dunes.
Some might argue that there’s very little skill involved in the X Games Step Up competition. You basically just hold the gas and try to get as high as possible, right? Well, as this little video shows, there’s a whole lot that can go wrong just trying to make it to the bar.
We all have those days that we’d prefer to forget. The next time you get yourself in a little over your head, just think about these five off-road fails and how much worse these people must feel.
King of the Hammers provides all sorts of incredible action and crazy carnage over the course of about a week. Between pre-running the course and the actual race itself, there are plenty of opportunities to tear up a machine. Dusty Epps wasted no time taking to the obstacles at Johnson Valley, as he jumped down an obstacle called Backdoor and ended up nearly backflipping his RZR. It’s safe to say he takes the phrase “Go big or go home” to heart.
One thing we’ve learned is that people in the off-road community are always ready and willing to lend a helping hand. Sometimes good intentions just don’t work out all that well, like in this failed recovery mission.
For most of the population, simply staying upright on a Segway could be considered an accomplishment. Brad DeBerti is known for pushing the envelope and that is evident in this off-road Segway jump video. Watch below to see if he rides it out or if he yardsales.
