I prefer parkour, because in parkour is always exercised a lot of physical form, and this is what most strikes me. Also has some very extreme jumping ways.

In Colombia the sport more extreme is motocross, this sport has many fans and people who practice it in different categories.

I would like both sports because I think that the extreme sports are very original and I can feel adrenalin. In my country, Colombia, the extreme sports more practiced are the wind-surfing and the parkour, in my culture the people like the extreme sports so much than other countries, because Colombia have a crazy people haha.
