This makes me want to backflip on skis again... or just go really really really big, again. Holy shit :)
“While on a backcountry trip through Telluride, CO, Sweden’s Jacob Wester gives us a first-hand look at a 100-foot backflip off a mining trestle that was built in the 1920s. The crew was staying at the Alta Lakes Observatory nearby”
Jacob Wester, you win our I Love Awesomeness athlete of the week award for this ridiculous backie.

What goes through your head to try and accomplish this? My mind is blown with this unbelievable wingsuit cave flight by Alexander Polli. I Love Awesomeness, but this is an entirely new level of crazy accomplishments beyond a scale of awesome. This is crazy.
“Winguit / BASE-jump athlete Alexander Polli does the never before done—a tactical flight through a narrow cave on a rugged mountainside. The flight starts with a jump from a hovering helicopter, Alexander reaches speeds of 250 km/h (155 mph) while following a precise trajectory leading to the cave opening, he then fully commits and flies directly through the narrow opening of the “Batman Cave!”
Shot in full HD, this extraordinary flight exceeds the level of commitment most fliers would ever consider—there can be no attempting, the only option is success!
The narrow cave, no wider than Alexander is tall, is located in Roca Foradada Mountains in Montserrat, Spain—a location that has inspired this professional Italian Norwegian athlete’s flying dream his whole life. Alexander hopes his success will inspire others not only to ‘climb over their mountains,’ but to also fly right through them!”
Whatever Morals Arrivederci is…?? They just launched in a crazy way.
Oh fuck is right… as Jeb Corliss states about his previous accident from Table Mountain in South Africa.
“This is raw footage of both impacts from the outside camera shot by Jeff. This is the first time you can really see the second impact and how fast it came after the first. The second impacts is where i broke both my ankles and my fibula…”
