This here’s Wout Van Aert, one of cyclocross’ biggest rising stars. He’s only 21, but he won the Belgian nationals today (cyclocross is to Belgium as, say, football is to America, so that’s a huge deal) and he took 2015's Superprestige competition.
Cyclocross is a great, silly sport primarily practiced by lowland Europeans like the Belgians and the Dutch. Designed as a seasonal alternative to road cycling, it is a great excuse for fans to eat frites and hand up beers to the riders. It’s like a combination between cycling and mud wrestling, and because of the…
With any tragedy in motor racing, there are always calls to improve safety. Now one of the biggest debates in racing has been reignited by the death of IndyCar driver Justin Wilson: whether to phase out the open cockpit race cars found in Formula One, IndyCar and similar series in favor of cars with closed cockpits.…
Officials delayed qualifying at Pocono for the upcoming IndyCar race after Charlie Kimball went airborne and tore out part of the catch fence in a devastating crash.
Irish rider Matt Brammeier was seriously injured when he collided with a car during yesterday’s Stage 6 of the Tour of Utah. I could tell you the timestamp when it happens in the video, but the anticipation is gnarly—and you’ll see it (and hear it) coming before it goes down. And keep watching for the motorcyclist who…
The third stage of the Tour de France was halted for about 15 minutes after a pile-up that brought down around 20 riders and caused four to withdraw.
Tonight’s rain-delayed Coke Zero 400 at Daytona ended in a win for Dale Earnhardt Jr. but a terrifying finish for Austin Dillon, whose car ended upside down after tearing into the catch fence as the “big one” resulted in injuries to at least three spectators but, amazingly, no drivers. Here’s video taken by a fan who…
Graham Rahal ended a long IndyCar winless streak today at Fontana in a thrilling race some attribute to new aero specifications, but the excitement likely didn’t extend to driver Ryan Briscoe who managed to escape serious injury after being flipped into a barrel roll on the final lap of the race.
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Jennifer Jo Cobb will be the first driver to be penalized under the new rule against leaving a wrecked car before safety personnel arrive and approaching the racing surface. Cobb maintains that she “completely forgot” about this rule.
The jockey you see getting smoked by a fence in the GIF above is named Lewis Ferguson (don't worry, he's not dead), and this happened during what was apparently his first-ever race with fences. Poor Lewis made some mistakes.
A gust of wind pushed Geraint Thomas off the course during this weekend's Gent-Wevelgem race in Belgium, and he crashed. Ouch.
A 33-year-old man was admitted into an emergency room after a motorcycle crash in Germany. Doctors noticed the berries to his twig were hard, swollen, and blue, while his left leg was shorter than it should've been. Why? "Femoral-Head Dislocation to the Scrotum." Yes, the top of his femur was sheared off and shoved…
A massive crash took Mark Webber in the number 20 Porsche out of the race in the last hour of the World Endurance Championship's 6 Hours of São Paulo. The Porsche 919 collided with Matteo Cressoni in the number 90 Ferrari 458 of 8 Star Motorsports, then hit the wall.

FIFA is best known as a console and PC game, but EA's hit soccer franchise has had a dedicated mobile audience for years now too. Some fans have had a hard time enjoying FIFA 15 Ultimate Team since it arrived last month for iOS and Android devices, however, because it's been marred by technical issues.
If there is such thing as a perfect motorcycle accident, this might be it: a motorcyclist crashes full speed into a car that's changing lanes. That's bad, right? The crash launches his body into a spinning mess in the air. That's definitely bad. But yet somehow he manages to flip and land standing up on the car's roof.
The opening stage of this year's Tour de France was a blatant attempt to get Mark Cavendish his first yellow jersey. Organizers kicked off the race with a pancake-flat run into Harrogate, UK, where Cavendish's mother is from. It's probably the only time the peloton's most accomplished sprinter will race in a Grand…
