“That escalated quickly.” I know it’s a cliché, albeit a fitting one for a hill climb race. But it’s all I could think about after our car—a salvage-title C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 street car transformed into a race car in just a few desperate weeks—not only survived the Pikes Peak Hill Climb but finished just one…
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb makes its return this weekend and if qualifying is a preview of what’s to come, it looks like records will be broken once again. The action kicks off tomorrow morning, so here’s how to watch.
James Hillier looked like he was headed for a fifth-gear wipeout at the deadly dangerous Isle of Man TT when his bike got sideways on a jump early in the race. Incredibly, Hillier was able to hold on and steady the wildly bucking motorcycle (extra points for the leg wave) and continue on its way.
Golfing gear is about as stereotypical as Father’s Day gifts can get, but this Callaway home range practice system actually looks really cool. $113 gets you a net, a hitting mat, and a caddy/feeder that can hold 35 balls and drop them onto the hitting zone with a tap of a club.
It’s a little puzzling that Amazon would run an NCAA apparel sale after all but 12 schools have been eliminated from the tournament, but better late than never, I guess.
I love surprises. Underdog stories. The unexpected. It’s part of why sports are good. That is, unless I picked guy-who-wins-too-much Sébastien Ogier in The Rally Takeover’s Fantasy World Rally Championship game. Then don’t surprise me, or I’ll get mad when lesser-known drivers actually make things interesting.
Are sports games not your thing? Or, perhaps, are you too disappointed with the world around you to even pay attention to them—or anything else, really? This guy, too. Things appear to be so bad, in fact, that he deliberately brought in the owner’s manual for his Volvo and read it during a basketball game.
Numerous genetic surveys have been done on the rabbit, but until this point in history, the potential existence of a clutch gene has been a scientific mystery. Are rabbits reliable performers in the clutch or are they wilting-ass chokers? Finally, we know for sure: Bunnies are weak as hell under pressure.
Need a gift idea for the golfer in your life? Amazon’s Cyber Monday golf sale includes clubs, rangefinders, backyard driving range nets, and more, all marked down to great low prices. These deals are only available today though, so don’t miss your tee time.
Don’t bother holding your breath while you wait for this golf ball to explode under the extreme weight of a stream roller, because it somehow survives being crushed. Apparently the magical rubber compound inside a golf ball that gives it incredible bounce is also incredibly durable.
The University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech have apparently been trying to arrange a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway, located between the schools, for some 20 years. Now it’s finally going to happen, after 19 days of intense preparation. Which you can watch here in about six minutes.
Pro tip to cyclists: sailing through the air horizontally while gripping your handlebars for dear life is the most efficient way downhill.
The 2016 Summer Olympics are here, and the world’s greatest athletes are ready to show us what they’re made of. If you want to catch all the suspense, drama, and victory, but you don’t have cable, here’s how you can medal in streaming for free.
For top runners, like the elite specimens competing in the Olympics, every last thing you wear needs to be engineered for comfort and speed. So Nike and Zeiss took inspiration from human anatomy for a new pair of sunglasses that wrap around an athlete’s head.
If you’re a student, or know one that will lend you their identity, you can stream every out of market NFL game, plus Red Zone channel and DirecTV Fantasy Zone for just $100 for the full season, even if you aren’t a DirecTV customer.
Dubai is equal parts engineering marvel and rich person playground. It’s where drones race pricey supercars and skateboarders rent out and drain entire waterparks for their amusement. It’s also where BASE jumpers Chris Douggs McDougall and Jimmy Pouchert shot themselves 300 feet into the air just for the fuck of it.
Last Tuesday, Voss, Norway-native Jon Gjerde decided to strap himself to a gigantic kite and go zipping through the air like some sort of very ugly bird. The 51-year-old is no stranger to hang gliding. He is, in fact, a world champion in the sport. But after this particular outing he’s lucky to be alive.
Way back in 2008 BMW revealed an especially outlandish concept car called the GINA Light Visionary Model that traded metal body panels for a flexible lycra-like fabric wrapped around the vehicle. It wasn’t exactly pretty, which makes it harder to understand why Puma would use it as inspiration for a new shoe.
Boosted boards—those snazzy electric longboards—are in high demand, and they’re expensive. Fully decked out, one of these is going to run $1,600. And they won’t ship until late July at the absolute earliest. There’s an obvious solution—but it’s not easily embarrassed.
