Freestyle skier Filip Flisar straps on jetpack for blast across town

Freestyle skier Filip Flisar, famous for his waxed moustache and his ski cross racing, also has another skill.

The Slovenian owns his own jetpack, a gas turbine made by AMT of the Netherlands, which is capable of powering him up the slopes with a quoted 40 kilograms of thrust.

Recently, Flisar was filmed in a dash across his home town of Maribor to get home on time, up the hills, down the slopes, across the bridge, over a soccer pitch, through the streets and across a frozen lake before he reached home.
