Most Terrifying Mountain Bike Trail On Earth

I would absolutely NOT do this. All the accolades to those that do. I do not understand how absolutely no one has fallen at least once, just from over thinking it. My bikes have thrown be curveballs while riding slow on flat pavement on WIDE city streets. What a fantastic picture of a drooling death trap.

Just as neat is the info about the wind blowing upwards,not outwards,though I seriously doubt without the hand of God,that if I fell,I’d be blown back onto the ledge.

Did I forget to mention !!!?!!!

Greatest Drag Race In The World

With an empty airstrip and eleven of the best driver’s cars in the world, we put on the world’s greatest drag race.

The GT-R is amazing off the line with 4wd and computerized launch control, but notice the trap speed. It’s only the 6th fastest car of the group. It’s hitting an aerodynamic brick wall. If that race had gone on any further, the GT-R would have been overtaken by 3 or 4 cars. I suspect it also has the shortest gearing of the leading cars to take advantage of the 4wd.

WOW! What A Kick-Off (Gif)

A kick-off is used to start each half of play, and each period of extra time where applicable. The kick-off to start a game is awarded to the team that lost the pre-game coin-toss. The kick-off to start the second half is taken by the other team. Another coin-toss is used at the beginning of extra time, where applicable. This kick-off is just out of the world.

An Interesting Golf Hole, $1,000,000 For Hole In One

For all the golf enthusiasts, professionals Extreme golf:

Forget pitch and putt – this tee-off point on top of a 430m mountain in South Africa is the hardest golf shot in the world, and more than $US1 million awaits the player who can score a hole in one. Players must take a helicopter to the top to play the longest – and highest – par three on the planet. Taking the shot also requires courage – a player needs to teeter terrifyingly close to the edge of the mammoth hillside.

Indeed, the Extreme 19th Hole is so high the ball takes almost 30 seconds to reach the ground. Channel Nine cricket commentator Mark Nicholas recently joined an elite list to have the shot in just three swings. “It was awesome, riveting and phenomenal,” he said. “It’s like the end of the world when you get up there and it’s an awful lot of fun. “It’s such an adrenalin rush taking the helicopter up and then rushing back down.” The hole is based at the Legends Golf and Safari Resort, within the Entabeni Safari Conservancy in South Africa ‘s north-eastern Limpopo Province . The other 18 holes were designed by world golfing legends including Trevor Immelman, Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington and Australia ‘s Robert Allenby.

A round of golf – including a buggy and lunch – will set you back R450 ($A70).
