The Isle of Man TT is the most lethal race on earth, and it hasn't softened with age or modernity, claiming two more lives earlier this week. And while these fatalities are both a tragedy and an important reminder that the reward may no longer be worth the risk, they also happen to make Michael Dunlop's record-smashing lap time all the more impressive (and terrifying). Clocking in with an average speed of over 133 mph, Dunlop logged the first-ever sub-16-minute lap time on the infamous Mountain Course this week, and thanks to this eye-watering POV video, you can experience the whole thing just as he saw it. Hold on tight and check it out.
Question its functionality. Question its practicality. Question why it even needs to exist. Whatever do, however, don't question the Sno Ped—a 6-inch wide, 90cc snowmobile concept from Michigan designer, Joey Ruiter—on its looks. Check it out and you'll see what we mean. If this isn't the coolest snowmobile you've ever seen, it's probably time to get those eyes checked.
There's something to be said for a classic, and while we aren't quite sure whether a 1979 YZ250 fully qualifies, this footage of Aussie whip king Jarryd McNeil flogging one around Zaca Station in California is still plenty rad. If you're looking for a blast from the past—and also some perspective on just how far motocross has come—then check this one out.
In a post-Gymkhana world, where absolutely insane motorized mayhem has become the norm, BJ Baldwin's Recoil 3—the latest installment in a truly mind-blowing trio of Trophy Truck stunt driving masterclasseses—stands apart. A scripted chase scene over the hills and through the streets of Tacoma, Washington, this one showcases some of the gnarliest driving we've ever seen, pushing the capabilities of both driver and machine to their literal breaking points. So grab the firesuit, strap on the helmet, and buckle up, because just watching this one feels dangerous.
If you've well been sleeping on UTVUnderground's XP1K side-by-side series, then you're one of the few, with the truly batshit off-road video series racking up over 16 million views across its first two installments (which you should definitely check out if you haven't already). Riding that incredible viral crest, the SxS auteurs dropped their third epic, XP1K3, yesterday and, much like its predecessors, the results have to be seen to be believed. Featuring RJ Anderson pushing a 200-hp Franken-Polaris RZR XP Turbo to its absolute gravitational limits amongst the burnt-out factories and rusted-through trainyards of Youngstown, Ohio, this one might well be the craziest driving video of 2015, so strap in, fire it up, and put that right foot to the floor.
From supercross to freeride, Florida to Idaho, and everywhere/everything in between, MOTO7 captures some of the best two-wheeled action on the planet. Starring the likes of Blake Baggett, Ken Roczen, Tom Parsons, Kris Foster, Ronnie Renner, Colton Haaker, Justin Barcia, and more, this one looks like one of the raddest MX films of all time, so check out the trailer and the get out there and ride.
It's been awhile since we've had the opportunity to watch James Stewart in a competitive setting, but if his domination of Red Bull Straight Rhythm this weekend was what we were building to all along, then it was more than worth the wait. Point it straight and pin the throttle.
Well here's one you don't see everyday: Two grown men playing tag in the halls of a desolate factory on a pair of tricked-out Harleys. It won't take long for you to realize the whole "tag" thing is just a cute premise for these guys to show off their staggering bike skills, but something tell us that won't mean much once you see them ride.
Two different disciplines, same kickass result. Watch trials Adam Raga and extreme enduro iron man, Alfredo Gomez, show off their considerable two-wheeled abilities in this awesome junkyard-based trials video.
Nothing says freedom quite like an open road and a bike...except, perhaps, for a never-ending swath of untouched powder. Just ask backcountry bums, Mike Carter and Callum Pettit, who recently decided to combine the two, strapping their boards to their bikes and pointing both toward the heart of the Canadian Rockies. What they found was the adventure of a lifetime, as told in The North Face's new must-watch mini-doc, Rocky Mountain Moto Tour. Check it out and then start planning your great fall escape.
