Near the end of the competition, UCLA was trailing Utah going into floor, the last event, and needed five great routines. They delivered. The crowd of 7,500 went crazy for Sophina DeJesus, who scored scored a 9.985. UCLA just beat Utah 197.100 to 197.075. My girlfriend caught me watching college gymnastics the other day. I told her if your ass looked like theirs I’d watch you all day.
“Al from Concept Distributing decided he was going to give riding his Polaris Snowmobile across a river a shot. The trick is to keep the drive belt dry while riding across the river. Well, Al didn’t seal the compartment well enough and the belt got wet. That caused him to loose power to the tracks and sink the sled. Thankfully, he was able to kill the ignition before water entered the engine and with a little work, get the engine started again.” – Bradley Friesen.
Unfortunately, the boat seemed to be a total write-off, but the pilot and co-pilot escaped without any serious injury thanks to the roll cage and fire suits. Via 52 Jetsprint Team
A hybrid vehicle like nothing you’ll see on the roads, the B-52 blends traditional pedal-power with 5.2kW of pure-electric thrust, all bolted to a motocross-inspired frame. With 250mm of rear wheel travel, paired-up with a 200mm front end, the B-52 drives through an advanced 9-speed sequential gearbox and stops with confidence, thanks to Magura hydraulic disc brakes. Covering up to 80km on a single charge, whilst churning out a top speed in excess of 80km/h, the B-52 is the pinnacle of hybrid-electric engineering. For more check out stealthelectricbikes.com
The Sherp ATV is the brain child of Alexei Garagashyan, a mechanic in Saint Petersburg, who has had an interest in unconventional solutions in traditional SUVs. The entire idea of Sherp is focused around four huge low-pressure tires, which are the most noticeable attributes of the vehicle. It measures 11 feet long and can climb over obstacles as tall as 27.5 inches. On land, the massive wheels move like tank treads in that, they lock up or slow down one side to turn.
This is the terrifying moment two pensioners and the passer-by who tried to save them – nearly met a watery end when they were swept away by strong waves. Luckily they were rescued by another bystander who leapt in after them, and escaped without serious injury despite repeatedly being knocked down by the violent waves and dragged out to sea. The wind had reached speeds of 86mph and code orange (‘be prepared’) was in place. The waves were up to 15ft (5m) high.
It’s been a little while since we heard from the sick/absurdly on-point mind of Michael Cusack, responsible for the chronicles of Damo and Darren and YOLO, but today he has unveiled a hopefully new saga featuring a very domesticated-seeming couple, one man, and his ute. It’s short, but hopefully just the beginning of a new and exciting adventure. Ute is an Australian slang term for a utility vehicle, which is basically a pickup truck with a couple of extra bells and whistles. The c*nt is telling him to throw the letter into the carrying tray of his vehicle. It’s artistic and spiritual. I don’t think most folks will realise the gravity of this work.
When it comes to Brandon Semenuk’s talent, anything with wheels can get some. Subaru Canada sacrificed one of their dope new CrossTreks to help Brandon get to some serious trails and Semenuk does it like any free ride mountain biker should. With dirt, skill and adrenalin pumping through his veins.
Augustine Pulu produced the biggest hit of the Sydney Sevens. Although controversy reigns as to how New Zealand ultimately came to win the Sydney Sevens, there can be no denying the ferocity of Augustine Pulu’s hit on American flyer, Carlin Isles. The bone crunching tackle is made all the more impressive given Isles’ ability to burn opponents from anywhere on the pitch.
