Motorcycle racers are a tough bunch. Wander around the paddock of a bike race and you will notice a good many riders have a permanent limp. Often you might see one or two riders wearing casts. Crashing is considered part of the sport.
During the XR100 race in Sandy Hook, Maryland, YouTube user Gluvnarider’s path was blocked by one of his competitors, who had come off his bike. Somehow as the fallen rider tumbled, he ended up being caught on Gluvnarider’s brake lever, like a bass on a Rapala. It is amazing that the guy wasn’t hurt!
Aussie artist creates crashed car using humans
A while back I found a cool video that showed the process behind creating human motorcycle sculptures. As part of a campaign to curb “low level speeding”, Aussie officials enlisted body paint artist Emma Hack to create a smashed up Volkswagen. Using 17 body painted people, the sculpture is intended to remind the public that “creatively show that every one of us are part of the issue.”
Petit Le Mans in HD
If you, like me, did not get to Road Atlanta for the Petit Le Mans last weekend, the following two videos give you a taste of the action at the historic track. The final round of the 2012 American Le Mans Series is a 10-hour endurance race that brings the best of the best in sports car racing together in Georgia.
