Freeskier Simon Dumont puts the road to the Olympics in perspective
Dumont is one of skiing's great ambassadors
Simon Dumont’s influence and impact on the sport of freeskiing over the course of his 13-year career is undeniable. Dumont led the sport from its infancy to the doorstep of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Having played such an important role in bringing freeskiing to the Olympics, Dumont was clearly disappointed when he didn't make the U.S. team after tearing his ACL during a qualifying run in Park City. But don't think you've seen the last of Dumont. Even after tearing his ACL, he still took another halfpipe run 24 hours later just to soak in the contest atmosphere. And he expects to be back on skis full time in the fall, focusing more on filming than contests, and continuing to push freeskiing forward.

It's time for Part 2 of Ryan Tuerck's World Tour Of Drifting. On this new episode of Tuerck'd, Tuerck meets up with the Fail Crew at Laitse Rally Park in Estonia for the Drift Allstars GP. The Fail Crew hook Tuerck up with a loaner S13 for the competition which Tuerck finesses through the qualifying rounds all the way to an insane finals showdown against Harold Valdma! Wonder if Tuerck or Harold will take the victory...
We also get a look at an epic custom BMW 6 series with dual turbo and 600HP. Next stop is Latvia but not before a run in with the local law enforcement—as they say, “Hey! It is not a problem.” Tuerck makes the absolute most of the opportunity at Riga, laying down pristine first tracks, the Fail Crew joins in, and all ends well in this Eastern European saga that was Ryan Tuerck's World Tour Of Drifting!
Got questions or comments about Tuerck’s Drift Allstars experience? That S13? The BMW 6 series build? Those Estonian women? You can hit Ryan up in the comments below or at #Tuerckd on twitter and he just might respond to you in next week’s Burnout Response video!

BMX street rider Calvin Kosovich takes you through a memorable meltdown that left him bruised and bleeding in the streets of SoCal. So he did what every sane person does: he went to town on his meaty paw with a tooth brush that probably wasn't even his. Definitely qualifies as one of the worst Worst Day Evers on Crooked World BMX.
