Apollos Hester plays for the East View (Texas) Patriots, and after a 42-41 victory over Vandegrift Friday night, he was pumped as hell for his postgame interview with TWC News Austin. The conversation got deep pretty quickly. You’ll feel like you can do anything after listening to Hester. Halfway through watching the video, I realised that I was doing push-ups.
The Radinn is an electrically powered wakeboard that gives riders the ability to fly across water without the rope and rail bar of traditional wakeboarding. The board’s innovative jet-propulsion system is piloted by a hand-held remote which lets the driver control the speed. The board houses low mass lithium batteries within a lightweight carbon fibre construction which adds to the aerodynamics of the board. Would you buy one?
A fan at the Tour of Britain captured Tao Geoghegan Hart’s dramatic crash in to the barriers in Brighton. Geoghegan Hart had sprinted to the front of the yellow jersey group just before the bend and went in to it with too much speed. Slamming his brakes on he went over the bars as he hit, and broke, the barrier. Thankfully both Geoghegan Hart and the spectator he knocked over were soon both up on their feet .
“What a day, an Australian first jumping over #paulbennet in his stunt plane at a private location. A lot of planning went into making this happen and a huge thanks to everyone that helped out.” – Joel Brown. Shout out to Ash Will for the submission.
What does it mean to fly down 4,900 vertical feet of terrain, passing through flowing descents of alpine wildflowers, or the mystique of earthy, tangled roots that rise alongside berms, or the blinkered light that flashes through the deep forests before opening into the energy of the valley below? More importantly, how does it feel? “In The Zone” stems from a three-part online video campaign produced by Goldstein Productions that personifies the character of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park’s three riding zones and captures the journey through each.

Sam Ruttiman was competing in the ‘Toyota One Hit Wonder’ event in Thredbo, Australia, wearing only his skis and a helmet. As a male, skiing doesn’t usually rank too high on the list of activities you want to be doing in the nude. Apart from the risk of snow burns on the tenderest part of the male anatomy, there’s a grave reality of shrinkage if you wear your birthday suit in the snow. Sam Ruttiman however, gives zero f**ks about all that as you will soon see.
