This motorcycle drift competition takes limbo to a different level

Motorcycle limbo is a thing, it’s an actual sport.

The objective is exactly the same as ‘regular’ limbo, except you have to use a motorcycle to do it.

So how does it work?

Competitors ride their motorcycle under a a horizontal bar and they have to ride their bike under the bar without touching it.

Also, the motorcycle is not supposed to touch the ground – with the exception of the wheels, of course.

The rider’s body is not supposed to come in contact with the ground, either.

The only exception being the rider’s knee pad.

The rider gets eliminated the moment they touch the bar, or they touch the ground, or when the bar falls off.

Motorcycle limbo, also known as Rut Limbo, is especially tough because riders also have to go through a trench-like path that’s been dug into the ground right under the bar.

This isn’t the only crazy sport involving motorcycles because motorcycle soccer is also a thing.

Motorcycle soccer, or Motoball as they call it, is exactly what you think: soccer, except it’s being played by people on motorbikes.

The rules are relatively simple, you ride your bike and kick the ball around with your feet, trying to score a goal.

The team that scores the most goals wins.

Also, just like in ‘normal’ soccer, outfield players can’t touch the ball with their hands, only the goalkeeper can.

Speaking of which, the goalkeeper is ‘on foot’, as in the only player who doesn’t have a motorbike.

Another major difference is the ball, which is a lot bigger than your average soccer ball.

The size of a soccer ball is around 22 cm in diameter (between 8 and 9 inches), but the one these guys are using looks at least twice as large.
