gravel concerns

Alghero, Sardinia

FIA World Rally Championship organizers give fair warning about the hazards of the Sardinian leg, with its high temperatures, slippery gravel and narrow, tree-lined roads that allow “no room for error.” And, like the world-class pros that they are, the competitors take it all in their stride. Here, Finnish driver Jari-Matti Latvala (VW Motorsport) shows how best to deal with the gravel problem—by flooring it.

Drew Bezanson practices ahead of an impressive fifth victory at April’s revered BMX battle Simple Session. The 26-year-old BMX Park rider learned his skills in the remoteness of his native Nova Scotia, Canada, but after winning recognition much further afield with his genre-defining style—including two Ramp Rider of the Year awards in the U.S.—trips home are a rarity. “I visit Nova Scotia once in the summer and once at Christmas,” he says. “At this point, I’m so used to being on the go, I get antsy when I don’t have stuff going on.”
