After their motorhome breaks down in Winnipeg, Mark and Calum are enticed by guest star, NHLer Jordan Tootoo, to fly up north to face off in his home town of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. In their first trek to the territories, the boys feast on the most ferocious rivalry this side of the rocky tundra: Mark and Team Cooked Meat versus Calum, Jordan Tootoo, and Team Raw Meat! As for the icing on the cake, the loser will do a lot more than wince in discomfort trying to withstand this week’s punishment, ‘The Rankin Inlet High Kick!’

The Inuit people of the Canadian North have been practicing the traditional high kick for a very long time but they’ve never done anything quite like this before. The Road Hockey Rumble crew tracked down the very best high kickers they could find in Rankin to test their skills at punishing Calum. Getting kicked in the groin never looked so painful!
