The four races making up the 2012 World Championship are set to take Red Bull Crashed Ice to a whole new level. Ice cross downhill is a mixture of ice skating and skiercross held in an urban environment and involves athletes in full ice-hockey gear racing four-at-a-time down steep ice canals dotted with jumps, rollers, obstacles and hairpin bends. The first to the bottom wins. Simple.
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series is high diving and death defying at it’s best – an acrobatic descent into water from heights of up to 92 feet. Divers have approximately three seconds to coordinate their movements before they break the surface of the water at around 60mph. This was no small feat, as Gary Hunt took the title as the 2010 World Champion.
The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world’s best race pilots in a fierce competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, pilots must navigate a low-level aerial track made up of air-filled pylons, flying at speeds reaching 370 km/h (230 mph) while withstanding forces of up to 12G. Paul Bonhomme earned the 2010 World Champion title after a series of stellar races.
Five events, three continents and more than 200,000 fans... the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010 featured 12 freestyle motocross fearless riders who fight their way from the Mexican bullfighting ring to the London arena, paying visits to the Egyptian sphinx, the traditional Spanish bullfighting arena and Moscow’s Red Square on the way to the ultimate showdown in the Roman Empire where Nate Adams was crowned 2010 World Champion.
