Red Bull gives you wings, they said.
Now it’s not just a slogan to make happy drunk guys waiting for Jägerbomb, it’s a reality now.
Red Bull is giving wings (money) to a whole generation of athlete, mostly from extreme sports.
They organize a lot of competitions, each one as extreme and funnier as the other.
Here a panorama of the better ones.
RED BULL CLIFF DIVING
So here’s the idea – Travel the world finding high cliffs to jump off of. Really what else is there to say about it?
RED BULL CRASHED ICE
Here is an event you don’t see everyday. Red Bull’s Crashed Ice is a combination of hockey, downhill skiing and boarder-cross. Not even sure what to say about this. Your on skates flying down hill side by side with competitors while dealing with sharp turns, jumps and other obstacles.
RED BULL FRAME REACTIONS
The world’s best BMX Park riders will be challenged to showcase their most spectacular tricks in a unique park set-up that they haven’t seen before, a park with moving elements that is being designed by X-Games ramp builder Nate Wessel.

RED BULL WAKE OPEN
The top athletes in each discipline will be crowned the best wake-boarders in the world. Athletes will be judged on overall impression and a score-based system with single-elimination qualifiers in this three-day event.

RED BULL STORM CHASE
3 fat storms above 10 Beaufort, 10 sailors, and the entire planet as a stage. These are the breathtaking ingredients for the most challenging windsurfing contest of all time. To guarantee raging conditions, Red Bull Storm Chase is mobile to the max, with two waiting periods and just 48 hours to mobilize competitors and global contest crew on-site before the storm strikes.
RED BULL BC ONE
Check out one of the few 1 vs 1 break dancing battle tours out there. Red Bull wanted to get away from the group break dancing battles that have sprung up across the world and get back to where it all started. 16 competitors go head to head to determine who is The One.
RED BULL RAMPAGE
Started in 2001 Red Bull Rampage was simply Red Bulls take on mountain biking. Riders start at an established start point and have to make it 1,500 vertical down to the finish line, taking any route they chose in between. The event was risky enough in its first year but soon after things like tricks became mandatory on the ride down as well as cliff dropping as high as 35ft.
RED BULL FLUGTAG
Many of us are familiar with this awesome event. Make your own flying machine! Build whatever you want and then plunge off a 30ft deck in hope you will fly…they rarely do. Again these contraptions
are not judged just on flight distance but also on the creativity and showmanship of the whole team.
RED BULL SOAPBOX
Here’s a fun event for the whole family. Build your own race car into whatever the hell you want it to be and fly downhill! One very cool part about this race is it is completely free to attend and participate! Just build your machine and your ready to go. Winning is not just about the race you are also judged on creativity so have some fun and go all out with this one.
RED BULL JOYRIDE
Red Bull Joyride is a freeride event that demands that competitors incorporate all facets of the sport, including slopestyle, dirt jump, and North Shore style mountain biking. The course is designed by professional riders, in collaboration with the best builders in the business, and promises to be the first of its kind.

A competition that pushed the rider’s agility and creative thinking to the limit.
RED BULL LINE CATCHER
Over two days of competition, the competitors will try to use the natural contours of the mountainside and their own incredible skills to win the votes of the four international judges and take home the coveted Red Bull Linecatcher title.
RED BULL COLD RUSH
Hosting the action will be one of the world’s foremost big mountain playgrounds, Silverton Mountain — North America’s highest and steepest ski area at 13,487 feet. Situated in the remote southwestern corner of Colorado, Silverton has 1,800 acres of bowls, chutes, and cliffs, all served up au naturel without a groomer in sight. Red Bull Cold Rush features immense peaks and drool-worthy lines that force athletes to be creative and push the limits of the sport.

RED BULL DRIFTING

RED BULL NIGHT SHIFT
So if you want to see some of the best surfers in the country and the world getting flung into waves just metres away from the shoreline and attempting some massive and extremely risky aerial moves
RED BULL DISTRICT RIDE
A contest of such distinction as the Red Bull District Ride tickles the ambition of many athletes to be one of the lucky few taking part in the most legendary of all freeride events. However, only the world’s best riders are allowed on the course, especially since the event represents the final contest of the Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour.
RED BULL AIR RACE
The Red Bull Air Race is an international series of air races in which competitors have to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the fastest time. Pilots fly individually against the clock and have to complete tight turns through a slalom course consisting of pylons, known as “Air Gates”.
RED BULL WAKE OF STEEL
One of the biggest and gnarliest set-ups that we have ever seen, it is tough to get a grasp of just how large this thing is. Note the height of the drops the guys are doing off the end and start to wrap your head around it.
RED BULL BIG TUNE
Red Bull Big Tune is the nation’s premiere head-to-head producer battle, established to showcase the musical talents of emerging as well as established music producers. It was created by DJ/producer/emcee — Vitamin D and Music Manager/Program Director — Jonathan Moore in 2004.
Red Bull Big Tune is inspired by the spirit of the Jamaican reggae/dancehall culture where the term Big Tune is derived. In traditional Jamaican dancehall culture a battle is reffered to as a “clash.” Selectors (DJ’s) would “clash” with other selectors by spinning the latest/heaviest “Riddims” (songs). DJ’s would record their own artistic interpretation or version of a standard “Riddim” that selectors would play in the dancehall. Whichever version that was most favored by the people was considered the: “Big Tune.”
RED BULL SNOWSCRAPERS
Held in New York’s East River park snowscrapers brings together the top snowboarders in the world for one night of high flying action. The riders compete for a piece of the $100,000 purse. The event ends with band performances as the park turns into a party on a cold NYC winter night.
