Whether snow, soil or air - sport has no limits. Here are the impressive images of the month

CASTELLÓN, SPAIN - TRUE GRIT

As soon as Spain’s Joan Barreda swapped motocross for the longer-distance, cross-country thrills of rally raid in 2011, he left the competition eating his dirt. In 2012 he won Baja Aragón on home soil and the Pharaons Rally in Egypt, and in January he toiled his way across South America to finish 17th in the Dakar Rally. What’s the secret of the Honda rider’s success? “Fine tuning,” says Barreda. “I spend all my holidays in the garage.”

LES ARCS, FRANCE - POWDER UP

To battle deep snow drifts on a steep mountain face and live to tell the tale, you’ve got to be more at home on two skis than on your feet. It helps if you come from a country where snowsports are second nature, like Swiss skier Laurent De Martin (pictured) or his compatriot Nico Vuignier. The latter won Red Bull Linecatcher, Europe’s largest freeski backcountry contest. It was an event even such snow-skilled pros would remember, judging from his victory tweet: “What a sick day.”

MANAMA, BAHRAIN - SKY HIGH

“When I was a boy, I was fascinated by anything that flew,” says Norwegian high-flyer Jokke Sommer. He started a career as a motocross rider, but it became clear to him he was destined for the sky. He sold his bikes and is now one of the world’s most proficient wingsuit pilots, pictured here cruising the thermals over the Bahrain International Circuit ahead of a World Endurance Championship race. Somer proved his proficiency by landing on the start line.
