Videos of Mad Skills

This thread is for those videos of truly amazing athletic performances.

It's amazing to me how the human body just keeps excelling at sports and performance. And the creativity of these people is just as limitless. What was impossible yesterday, is being done by someone today.

Watch this full screen HD and check out the end credits for some bloopers. Enjoy.

Re: Videos of Mad Skills

^^ WTF?!?!?! I've seen such things before, still mind-blowing though. It must take sooooooo much practice to not kill yourself doing that. I've seen a road-race type even with bikes doing the same kinda thing down-hill through a town.. insanity...

Re: Videos of Mad Skills

Lets take it up a notch.
How about a lap around the Mountain Course at Isle of Mann TT?

Jeb Corliss is a daredevil who is into base jumping and really took wingsuit flying to the next level. He's a good one to sub to on the youtube.

Re: Videos of Mad Skills

Bad ass riding... makes me want a stunt-bike, but not as much as I want a track-bike.... though I guess I could make them one in the same, would just have to switch plastics and sprockets for the track... aside from the usual tyre change to new track tyres anyway..

You can't turn off the cheesy music when he's pulling the Gangnam style moves it's part of it!

Re: Videos of Mad Skills

Guy Martin most definitely qualifies as a man with mad skills. Here he talks us through a lap at IOM TT

Re: Videos of Mad Skills

I am pretty sure he isn't riding and talking... but still insane to watch anyone that rides the TT... I'd love to do it at my own speed, but I can only assure you I would be going half of their speed the entire way =)

Re: Videos of Mad Skills

No RR, I took it he was watching the video of himself and talking us thru it all. It's amazing to listen to him. Takes a little concentration, but you can get it.
Someone on youtube said, Who's faster: Guy Martin on a bike or Guy Martin on a mic?
