World Base Race
Witness humans defy gravity at this base jumping competition
Tight roping across Niagra Falls and clearing the Grand Canyon on motorcycles ain’t got nothing on this.
No bungee cords or nets necessary, the World Base Race is a high-speed and even higher adrenaline competition where daredevils dive off mountains and race head-first to the finish line.
Wearing state-of-the-art and reliable (at least, we hope) wingsuits, participants glide at lightning speeds across a 130-meter course before activating parachutes and slowing down for a safe landing.
If they win, do you think they kiss the ground and thank their lucky stars they’re alive?
Nah ... they just do it again!
Winners of each one-on-one battle advance to the next round of the tournament until one mountain flyer stands alone, earning bragging rights, a winning title and a “Certifiably Crazy” doctorate.
(You only get an associates for jumping the Grand Canyon.)
