Mountain bike freerider Szymon Godziek is a master of memorable performances. In 2014, the 24-year-old became the first man ever to pull off a tsunami backflip—dangling by the handlebars while executing a backflip—in competition. For his first appearance at Red Bull Rampage that same year, he wore only a basketball jersey. He went on to finish 11th. This is Godziek trying out the 2015 Rampage course. He missed the final this time, though, after crashing in qualifying from a height of 19.7 feet.

The rules at Red Bull Crashed Ice, the Ice Cross Downhill World Championships, are brutally simple. Each race sees four participants hurtle down a steep ice track, featuring 90-degree turns and kickers, at up to 40 mph. The quickest two move on to the next round. In the 2015/2016 season opener in Quebec (pictured), American Cameron Naasz got away from the Canadian competition and went on to win the event, much to the disappointment of the home fans.
