Ted Ligety didn't do so hot in the 2010 Winter Olympics.He came in fifth in the super combined, 19th in the super-G, ninth inthe giant slalom, and he didn't get to finish the slalom because heskied off course in the first run.

So, what else can Ligety do besides ski? Apparently, he's pretty decent at car jumping. See him and Jimmy Cochran ride air in a beater during pre-season training in New Zealand in the video above.

The Olympics may be over, but it's unlikely Ligety will slack any time soon. There are still the World Cup finals in Germany to look forward to in March. He's going to defend his January giant slalom victory in hopes for a World Cup crown in the GS.
