…Travis Pastrana is indestructible?

Travis Pastrana New Year No Limits Jump

Travis Pastrana’s world record setting New Year’s Eve rally car jump in his Subaru WRX was impressive:

Travis Pastrana Crash

What’s even more impressive though is that he managed to destroy his practice car and then walk away from the accident like it was no big deal:

The man is either a cat working on his ninth life, or he’s indestructible. Either way, I can’t wait to see what he thinks of next.

…Robbie Maddison back-flipped the Thames River?

Robbie Maddison Thames Jump

Robbie Maddison has already been featured on DYH a few times for his crazy, two-wheeled stunts, which means it should come as no surprise that he’s back for another death defying jump.

This time, he used his motorcycle to no-handed back-flip over the Thames River in London thanks to the raised roadway of the famous bridge.

…Mirror’s Edge 2D is amazing?

Mirror's Edge 2D

By now you’ve probably heard of Mirror’s Edge, the free running/parkour game that is soon to debut for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

However, if you’d like to get in on the action a little early, then check out Mirror’s Edge 2D from Borne Games.

Made by the same people that created the Fancy Pants Adventure, Mirror’s Edge 2D is a free flowing Flash game that closely mirrors the gameplay style of Mirror’s Edge, only in 2D.

The goal is to run, jump, climb and slide your way through the level in a quick but creative way, collecting points and other goodies along the way.

Right now the game is still only in Beta, so you only get one level, and there still might be the occasional bug or two, but there’s definitely promise here, and it’s still fun to play as is, so head on over and give free running a chance.

…Ken Block is a mad man?

Ken Block

First he jumped his car more than 171 feet. Then, he jumped his car off of a ski slope next to a group of snowboarders. Now, Ken Block is showing off his skills in a demonstration of a sport called Gymkhana, and it’s one of the most beautiful pieces of automotive cinema ever created.

For those (like myself) that have never heard of Gymkhana (pronounced jim-kah-nuh), it’s “an automotive sport taking place on an open field or a parking lot requiring drivers to skillfully maneuver their cars around a series of cones, slaloms, 180 degree turns, 360 degree turns, figure eight turns or other obstacles using extreme acceleration, braking and drifting”.

Still confused?
