Back in 2004, a flip on skis gone tragically wrong broke Josh Dueck’s back and left him as a T11 — full paraplegic. For the past 8 years one of his dreams has been to do a flip on snow again. On February 3, 2012, Josh became the first person to perform a backflip on snow in a Sit Ski!
Congrats Josh, and welcome to #HERO-STATUS! You are truly an inspiration to all, this reminds us to never give up!!!
Josh Can also be seen in the upcoming movie which has been critically acclaimed with numerous film awards, ‘The Freedom Chair’

Shaun White scores a perfect 100 AND five-peats, both Winter X Game firsts!
My whole weekend was consumed with watching Winter X, it still amazes me that every single year there is some sort of progression with the stunts being performed. Just when you thought you have seen everything somebody executes a trick that was never done before and changes the future of the sport once again. It just goes to show you that if you can dream it, and you work for it, it can be done. The same could be said of Shaun White the guy who just seems to be unstoppable once again proved why he is highly regarded as one of the best to have ever done it by scoring a perfect 10 and reclaiming his title for the 5th time in a row! Watch his amazing run right here!
Private terrain parks, early morning snowmobile laps, and double corks make up the life of Bobby Brown as he gets ready for X Games in Breckenridge, Colorado. Take a look and listen in.
Most people hate going to work in the morning, a day in the life of Bobby Brown reminds you that not all people despise the morning commute and the antics that come along with having to be at the job.
This guy gives you meaning to the term “Riding On The Edge”
This is one of those videos that make you appreciate the invention of Go-Pro, before those nifty little suction cup HD Cameras we would never have been able to view this footage from this angle! Such an awesome ride, I could only imagine the rush this guy must have felt after conquering that ridge!
THE FINAL CHAPTER IN THE GIANTS OF DIRT PROJECT CELEBRATES THE LIFE AND DEDICATION OF DANE SEARLS, 1988-2011.
December 20, 2011 — The final video release for Professional Freestyle BMX rider Dane Searls sees him successfully ride the biggest dirt jumps in history, clearing distances up to 60 feet (18 metres) on a BMX.
The Giants of Dirt Project began in 2010 when Dane Searls brought the idea to Unit Clothing, his sponsor. Over the next 12 months, together they built and tested the line of jumps in Boonah, (west of the Gold Coast, Queensland) on the farm of fellow Unit rider Freestyle Motocross Pro Matt Schubring. Sheer determination saw Dane push through many painful crashes and set backs, including the devastating Queensland floods of 2010. Dane finally completed his life long goal in November 2011, by riding and pulling tricks through the entire set of jumps. Giants of Dirt 3 is the realization of Dane’s dream.
A custom built drop in ramp was constructed and the final jump in the set of four jumps measures 60 feet (18 metres) from dirt take off to dirt landing.
Two days after fulfilling his dream, Dane was involved in an accident and suffered critical head injuries, placing him in a coma for five days. Dane passed away on November 25, 2011 in hospital due to injuries sustained.
His death sent shock waves through the BMX community and he will be long remembered as an amazingly kind person and as a professional athlete who pushed the boundaries of the sport of BMX.
For those of you who may not be in the know when it comes to Aaron Colton, he is one of Red Bull’s premier athletes, and is quickly making a name for himself as one of the greatest freestyle motorcycle guys on the planet. He’s from Shakopee, Minnesota, and started riding at an early age, and by the time he was 13 rumors began to fly about this young kid making an impact on the freestyle moto scene, well he’s now 19 years old and he’s still making headlines.
“His trophy list includes first place at the 2006 XDL National Championship; second place at the 2007 XDL National Championship; first place at the 2007 King of the South Individual Freestyle; first place at the 2007 XSBA Individual Freestyle and an unusual third place at the 2007 Stuntwars Individual Freestyle; first place at the 2008 XDL Indy GP Individual Freestyle; and first place at the 2008 Starboyz Stuntfest Individual Freestyle, and the list goes on as he continues to win or podium and basically every competition he enters.”
This video is just a slight inclination of what he is capable of on a bike! I had the honor of meeting him last year at a Red Bull Event, his attitude and personality, well simply put, are contagious. I have a feeling this guys name is going to be around a long time in the extreme sports category, so keep your eyes open and check out this video in the meantime!
Who doesn’t like a little freestyle moto-x every now and then! This is just one of those sports that never gets old watching! Especially when they drop the edit using a great Lincoln Park song “The Catalyst” (impressive).
