Autopsy: Jesse Defies Death x3

In Frostbite Bike Jesse had to draw on skills that are rarely found in the sun-drenched warmth of Southern California. Not only did he have to combat the slippery ice and freezing cold, but deep snow and equipment malfunctions plagued the 125 mile super ride. On dry land in the south, the two-day trip would have taken two hours tops, but on ice, it needed two full days of light, in a land where light is as scarce as the people. To make matters worse, who’d have thought Jesse would have had to draw on his engine building skills…to fix his chainsaw?? It became more than a one man battle to brave the elements and survive the extreme cold if he and the crew wanted to see the light of day.

While it is easy to sit back and be a skeptic, only Jesse is willing to test his abilities across a gamut of challenges in unfamiliar territory and disciplines that are so treacherous that only a handful of people can honestly say they have ever even tried. So far he has tested some of the most difficult tasks imaginable and came out on top. Keep watching as Jesse continues to knock on death’s door. 

His next challenge: Figure 8 racing. Arguably one of the most dangerous forms of racing, as competitors zip around a track crossing paths twice every lap!  Reaching speeds of 120mph, a crash is not only possible, it is inevitable. The danger factor is amplified as Jesse’s reaction, focus, and driving instinct are put to the test to see if he can avoid a crash and finish the race! Tune in June 28th as the adventure continues.
