If only we all had such devotion to our aims. If only I did.
I am quite impressed by the stunts that they have trained themselves to do, and find it more watchable than sports like football, but "harmless"? Listening to the commentators describe all the broken bones and near death crashes some of the competitors have suffered - I think some of these events are highly dangerous
But I agree, if they enjoy it, and they aren't harming anyone else (I guess that is what you meant by harmless), then good luck to them!
