Granite Cities in Siberia

Climbers Killian Fischhuber, Galina Terenteva and Robert Leistner, and guide Sergey Karpukhin traveled to Ulakhan-Sis Siberia for a Rock Climbing expedition: this remote location has had very few human visitors, not to mention climbers. The goal of this expedition was to explore this region and get to the top of towers. The team established numerous first ascents/climbs. The rock quality was less than ideal, but the setting, the endless number of unclimbed towers more than made up for it.

Red Bull Mirror Park

In an invasion of the senses, BMX skills reflected in stunning Mirror Park. BMX riders Courage Adams and Paul Thölen recently unleashed their array of tricks on a bike park made of mirrors, for a special project for Red Bull.

The Fourth Phase: an interview with Travis Rice

From the creators of The Art of Flight, Red Bull Media House presents The Fourth Phase, a snowboarding epic starring iconic athlete Travis Rice.

A gifted innovator, Rice has always held the keys to what’s possible, yet he still seeks more. While exploring the untapped backcountry of his native Wyoming with mentor Bryan Iguchi, Rice plots a 16,000-mile course to follow the hydrological cycle around the northern Pacific, where snow and ice create dreamlike landscapes on the towering mountains above.
On his journey, Rice is joined by several of snowboarding’s most innovative riders, including Mark Landvik, Eric Jackson, Bryan Iguchi, Pat Moore, Mikkel Bang, Jeremy Jones, Victor de Le Rue, Ben Ferguson and more.
