Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Promulgated as a "substitute Olympics" for those who find track and field, swimming, weightlifting, cycling and all of the other standard Olympic games too tame and boring, the World Extreme Games caters to hard-core adrenaline junkies with such thrillfests as dirt biking, sky surfing, mountain boarding and jet-skiing. Melbourne, Australia featured the first round of games in 2000; the six-volume World Extreme Games series of home video releases sports six-hour coverage of these events, with one hour of footage in each volume. Volume five boasts footage of the Z-50s, Dirt Jumping, Surfing, Wakeboard Freeride, Mass Street Luge, BMX Vert and MotoX events.
