Sport Stacking

Now, this sport may not seem extreme or daring, but it is definitely an unsual and crazy activity! Sport stacking or speed stacking, is a sport where players are supposed to stack cups in certain formations in the least amount of time or before their opponent. Seems simple right? Well, there are players out there like,Steven Purugganan, who can stack cups in 5.93 seconds!  There are even rules that all players must follow set by the World Sport Stacking Association.  So do you think you could challenge Steven Purugganan?

Do you dare?

Hello citizens!

Can you drive through on an unpaved road in the middle of the forest with no one to guide you but your co-driver? At speeds near 80-100mph?

If you think you can, you should try out rallying. It is a motorsport that requires the best skills, along with insane reflex and instincts. With blind hairpins and unpaved roads, this can lead to driver & spectator casualties, and in the worst case, death!

From the forests of rural Germany, to the deserts of Baja, rally drivers and their team compete in timed tests of endurance and persistence. With races that can last 1000 miles or more, and in brutal conditions such as rain, snow, and mud; rally drivers are considered some of the best of the best. And when your only sense of navigation is your co-driver (who reads from a map) you better hope you can make it from point A to point B in one piece.

With the highest death toll among motorsports, rallies are not for the weak of heart! Note how close the spectators are to the drivers, and with no guard rails to protect you, the fans are just as insane.

Check out the videos showcasing some of the thousands of crashes each year!

Now the question is .. Do You Dare?

Heli-Skiing

Heli-skiing is not your average run down, bunny hill. Heli-skiing invovles a helicopter, perfect powder, and an extremely long way down the mountain. Heli-skiing has become extremely popular since its beginning in the 1960s, and is one extreme way to ski down a mountain. There is also the option of heli-boarding, which involves snowboarding instead of skiing. People enjoy the rush of jumping out of a helicopter and cruising down the mountain at high speeds. Do you think you could handle it?
