Skateboarding may be an official Olympic sport, but that doesn't mean that all skateboarders are incredible athletes—especially considering you can smoke and skate at the same time. But on an all-new KING OF THE ROAD, Thrasher's competitive skateboarding road trip puts its teams to the ultimate physical fitness test.

During their city challenge, the three teams take their turns at becoming jocks for the day, incorporating elements of basketball, football, hockey, and tennis into some seriously dangerous stunts—like landing a trick on a skateboard while wearing hockey skates.

dress in sports gear and do tricks that incorporated elements of basketball, football, hockey, and tennis. But the guys definitely learned a hard lesson that day: even though you're a famous skateboarder, that doesn't mean that you're in peak shape. Just watch them try to do jumping jacks.
