Whether it’s a backflip, a front flip or even just a standard superman, we tip our hat to any of the brave souls who are willing to risk life and limb by riding freestyle motocross. Becoming disconnected from your machine in mid air is every FMX rider’s greatest fear, and this poor guy missed his grab holds and suffered the consequences of a serious FMX fail (#fridayfail). Hopefully he walked away from it.
We get it. Taking the time to secure a safety line can be a nuisance, and more often than not they get in the way. However, tying off to another vehicle or one of the many trees in the area very likely would have saved this guy from a huge tumble down this hillside. Please excuse the language, as you can imagine, the people standing by were a little shocked.
Everyone in the UTV industry pretty much knows RJ Anderson is fearless, but driving a UTV requires a lot more skill than just hitting the gas peddle. Case in point: this perfectly executed RZR jump. Jumping a double on any motorized vehicle leaves a small margin for error, and RJ airs it out like a pro and land perfectly on the down ramp. Check out his precision driving.
Anyone who watches those “barn find” TV shows understands how exciting it can be when you stumble across a truly great find. For any powersports enthusiast, a mint condition Honda CR500 still in the crate is something worth getting excited about. Now the only question is: will they build it or leave it in the box and keep it as a piece of motorcycle history?

Last year, the Nikola Motor Company announced plans to offer a 500+ horsepower, fully electric UTV. The physical machine was unveiled at the Sand Sports Super Show in September, and since then the company has published three short videos of the vehicle in motion. There’s nothing overly exciting about these videos, however it is exciting to finally seeing a functioning prototype.
The desert is beautiful, but it can be a brutal and rugged place. It’s not somewhere that most people plan on spending much time. If you’re a Jeep enthusiast, however, the desert is exactly the type of place you want to go and get lost for a few days. See what we mean in this awesome video of a Mojave Desert Jeep Adventure.
Tanner Foust is an accomplished rallycross and Formula Drift driver that, as of late, has been spending a fair bit of time in the seat of a Polaris RZR. Tanner Foust Quantum Drift is just a small peak into the life of one of the busiest men in motorsports.
We’re not sure what’s more entertaining – the banjo music in the background of this vintage video or the looks on the faces of riders trying to make it up the Widowmaker motorcycle hill climb. Either way, our hat is off to these valiant soldiers for doing battle on, shall we say, sub-par equipment. Ride on men. Ride on!
