Here's the inside story of how Darren McNamara ripped Chris Forsberg's door off
"If you're going to lose, rip someone's door off."
One of the highlights from last week's Formula Drift stop at Wall Speedway in New Jersey was the third place battle between Chris Forsberg and Darren McNamara. The two drifters collided on a right-hand turn and Forsberg's passenger side door was ripped off his car. Off Track's Jarrod DeAnda asked both drivers about the crash after the event. Forsberg actually didn't even realize he'd lost his door until he came into the next turn and saw all this light streaming into his car.
The narrow, winding hillsides of Valparaiso, Chile are home to one of the gnarliest, most technical downhill mountain bike courses on earth and this crazy POV video from Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo 2015 has all the proof you need. Point it down straight and hold on tight, because this one gets crazier with seemingly every twist, turn, jump, and stair ride.
What do you do with a futuristic Chinese metropolis built for over 1 million citizens before being promptly abandoned and left to rot? You put Vaughn Gittin Jr. on a plane, you get a brand new Mustang GT, and you turn the Formula D wheelman loose on the streets of the world's biggest ghost town, that's what. Ford says the video was put together to celebrate the Year of the Horse, but you and I both know this is about one thing and one thing only: Slaying tires. Fire it up and enjoy.
Boston has had plenty of snow this winter (PLENTY). So the Signal Snowboards crew decided to get into a little throwback vibes and hit up Boston.
On this episode of Every Third Thursday, Dave Lee and the crew team up with longtime skateboard designer Paul Schmitt to create the ultimate backyard, back hill, neighborhood golf course fun board—we’re calling it Mr. Fun. Dave finds legendary skateboarder Christian Hosoi’s pro model shape in Professor Schmitt’s workshop, which serves as the foundation for this 7-ply deck. Hosoi himself stops by the factory to add some crucial design input to the Hammerhead-esque shape (kinda like the surfboard he made of it). Mr. Fun gets a custom Hosoi grip tape job and then it’s off to the streets of Boston for the historic amounts of snow to see if Mr. Fun delivers on the promise of fun.
See this simple board take on snowy streets, parks and everyday urban features with no lift ticket (and no bindings) required. Does this look like fun to you? Let us know in the comments below!
