Weekend Warmup

It Was a Good Week, Internet

November 14th, 2013

The internet produced the goods this week! Saddle up for some amazing stuff…


Van Damme Splits Again

This man is 100% Pure Badass. This video is technically perfect. You won’t even notice you’re listening to…


Ken Block in Gymkhana 6

It is a Ken Block video, and it must be watched. The concept is well-used but the content is still engaging. Braaaap!


How To Crash at Nurburgring

Thousands of Deutsch Marks? Millions? I don’t think there’s insurance coverage for this.


Fall Follow

Germans riding in the leaves with some cool angles.


Karin Pasterer: Offseason

There is actually some decent riding here, after some less impressive performances on the “off season” sports.


Russian Police Get Lucky

Using the force wisely.


Dear God Why?

This just in: rollerblading is still a thing. And it turns out it’s being done by bearded 30 year olds. Who knew?


Too Much Air

Good for a laugh or twelve. So good.


Best Timelapse Ever?

Seriously, so cool.


Well, you warmed up for the weekend yet?

  • Stuminator

    Van Damme is bad ass for sure, real video or not.

  • cam

    You dare doubt the muscles from Brussels? If that is actually his nick.

  • Jerry-Rig

    Didn’t know Tom Green had mad rollerblading skillz.

  • counterpoint

    What’s more embarrassing? Being from Toronto and having Mayor Ford or from Vancouver and having rollerblade guy?

    • nick

      I don’t know if rollerblading is cool or nor but he sure looks like he’s having fun but then again I guess Ford is having fun to!

  • morgman

    Volvo claims it’s real, but did have some safety measures in place that can’t be seen in the video.

    As for the question about rollerblade guy, fortunately he was just visiting. I’m sure he’s got more than enough to rollerblade on at home.

    1. He is in fact called the Muscles from Brussels. All others are merely imitators.
    2. Deutsche Marks? Lol, Morgan. Maybe 15 years ago. EUROS!
    3. Gymkhana – when will they actually jump a shark? I love them all but it must be getting hard to come up with new and cool stuff. Then again, they succeed at it.

  • morgman

    2. I just like saying it… “Doytsch marks. Doytsch.”

    3. They could in fact actually jump a shark in fully introspective ironic form, and it would still be awesome. Gymkhana 4 did have Jaws in it, but they didn’t jump him.

    lol Mountainbikers are in no position to make fun of rollerblading! its a street culture sport and however stupid or gay you might think it it is, it;s just people being happy and creative having fun! and your basically putting a video up of it insinuationg that it sucks? or its stupid or something – that its worthy of mocking?! come on ! ‘is that still a thing?’ ‘check out his weird ‘hipster’ gear! ‘O snap we have one of those dudes living in the city?! wtf’ yeah imagine.. just chill and leave it out. or next time put up a ‘street’ mtb/trails vid.. ah MTBers

      If it wasn’t obvious by the 28 weeks of mostly non-MTB, mostly action sports content in the Weekend Warmup feature, we pay attention to the wide world of wheels and hucks well beyond trail riding. Rollerblading, like fixed gear freestyle and any form of unicycling, is ripe for ribbing – and if you can’t laugh at a joke about your sport, you’re taking yourself too seriously.

      Sincerely,

      The guy who made a video making fun of all the plaid shirts at Interbike, and then wore six of them in How To Be A Mountain Biker.
