Watch These Daredevils Skiers Race While Being Towed Behind Motorcycles

Sports By

You could call Red Bull Twitch ‘n’ Ride a “drag race”…literally. The idea behind this sport is daredevil skiers connect themselves to the back of a motorcycle and get towed around a Motocross track. The only problem: you have to compete against 39 others doing the same exact thing.

This particular event took place in Latvia and featured 150 teams, competing based on the engine size of their bikes, per Red Bull. Each competition was two full laps around the track or approximately 10-minute runs.

Watch the ensuing mayhem below from the point-of-view of pro skier and full-time adventurer Tarquin Cooper. (Note: Some of the language in the video is NSFW.)
