In Discovery Channel's new series see former England cricketer, Freddie Flintoff, try his hand at some of the most extreme sports and challenges on offer around the world. But, to up the stakes, Freddie won't be trying anything out without turning it into a competition, and so is calling in retired athletes, once at the top of their game, to see if they can beat him. This fascinating series will follow Freddie as he travels to Mexico to challenge ex-team mate Darren Gough to an extreme sports competition, including lucha libre wrestling; in Arizona Freddie and Olympic athlete Iwan Thomas compete in a demolition derby, go kayaking, and climb the state's terrifying red rocks; in Texas, former England rugby player Kyran Bracken pits himself against Freddie to tackle a ranching challenge, as they take part in a Wild West shoot-out, and in California, Freddie is joined by former professional basketball player Dennis Rodman where they take to the skies over Laguna Beach, to become fighter pilots for a day.
