It just goes to remind us normal surfers of the sheer terror one will encounter while surfing the Mexican Pipeline. And the fact that a closeout set provides no channel to get away from it, because it’s a beach break. Count us out, and leave Puerto Escondido to the professionals.

Every year Fox Racing has to shoot photos and video their top riders for the upcoming season. Due to their heavy schedules, they usually end up shooting each rider by themselves. This year they assembled all of the available riders in one location at one time. Having this many bad dudes in one spot usually only happens on race day.

Photos and video have emerged of an under-8s rugby league player dubbed the ‘gentle giant’ towering above his pint-sized teammates. Vaka Tuitupou is just seven but weighs 100kg – and is hard to miss in the team photograph, towering over the rest of the St John’s Eagles under-8s. The young Samoan boy made the news this week after a video of him tearing through his opponents with ease was posted on social media.

Moeen Ali became the fourth bowler in history to seal a Test victory in such dramatic fashion. Ali took a hat-trick to remove South Africa’s last three wickets and win the match for England. It is only the third time in Test history that victory has been sealed by a hat-trick, and the first time for 115 years. England now lead the series 2-1.

Shortly after Daniel Cormier’s devastating knockout loss to arch-rival Jon “Bones” Jones in UFC 214 on Saturday night, Joe Rogan went to the groggy, teary-eyed fighter for the brief interview which has since caused some controversy. Shortly afterward Rogan stepped up and admitted he’d made a big mistake because he said some time ago he wouldn’t interview a fighter right after they got knocked out.

Filmmaker Youri Fernandez’s On/Off can be best described as a monochromatic portrait of a night and day skate around Berlin. Don’t let the simplicity of this explanation fool you, this is seriously incredibly thought out!

The three-week 3,540km (2,200-mile) race started in Germany with a 14km individual time trial. It ventured through Belgium and Luxembourg before heading into France. The route took the 198 riders down the eastern side of France to the Jura mountains in the opening week before a rest-day transfer across to the Dordogne in the west. Two days in the Pyrenees mountains dominated the second week, while the third week was all about the Alps before a time trial in Marseille and the final processional daunt into Paris.

In case anyone was wondering, Jon Jones is still pretty great at this fighting thing. Bones reclaimed the light heavyweight championship with a third-round TKO of Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 214 from the Honda Center in Anaheim. Check out the highlights now. Photo via: @allelbows

Even Jimmy Fallon screams, “SLAAAYEEERRR” these days!

Climbing the South Summit of Huascarán is considered technically difficult and dangerous, because of ice and snow avalanches due to its proximity to the ocean, high humidity, and low temperatures on top of the mountain. The long-distance and dangerous ascent to the South Summit of Huascarán took five days, with climbing mainly at night. This is due to the fact that at night the air temperature is much lower, and the ice congeals, which makes the ascent safer.

The aim of the game is fairly simple: players take to the Santa Croce square, which is about the size of a football pitch, and try to score more goals than their opponents by using any means necessary. Sucker punches and kicks to the head are forbidden but head butting, punching, tripping, wrestling and choking are fair game.

As sports fans, we get to watch all the clashes and devastation without having to deal with the painful recoveries. Champion boxer Ruslan Provodnikov lost by unanimous decision in this bout, and his black urine sample is a testament to the beating he was able to withstand. Check out the highlights from the fight.

“Calling Harlem’s Polo Grounds projects home, RRDBlocks picked up the Ruff Ryders name from the New York motorcyclists back in the day and applied it to bicycles. Along with his team of young riders, they’re the bane of the NYPD, mobbing Uptown streets, doing wall rides on buses, and manual stalls on top of cabbies. RRDBlocks and The Cycle Squad Maniaccs are a team of kids that blend off-road racing culture with BMXing” – @massappeal

The term “rivalry” is often overused in sports. When it comes to UFC 214 headliners Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, though, the disdain is all too real. Throughout the history of combat sports, tension between opponents has been a chief selling point around the biggest fights. The hatred between UFC Light Heavyweight champion Cormier and former champ Jones is as authentic as it gets.
