This is amazing! Hot on the heels of their world-changing Space Dive with Felix Baumgartner, Red Bull are again pushing the boundaries…….
Using some immense 3D camera tech, you can look around and experience the “first person” thing in a more realistic way than ever before – this is mega exciting!
Use the up/down/left/right cursor keys of your keyboard or click and drag with your mouse on the video player to look in any direction during this amazing downhill run.
The Scott11 team and Norwegian producers Making View strapped a specialist remoted-controlled on-board camera to leading rider Brendan Fairclough.
He and team-mates Floriane Pugin and Noel Niederberger set off down the mountain after official practice at the season-ending World Cup 2012 round in Norway, and they held nothing back…
Hafjell is an awesome location – the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup circus loves it so much after one visit that next year cross-country will join downhill on the scheduled Norway stop – and this video, a world-first for MTB, makes it look even better.
Start by following Floriane down the course, then swing round to see how Noel is doing behind – you can even look down and watch Brendan soaking up every bump on the track with a bird’s-eye view! This really is downhill mountain biking as you’ve never seen it before – no wonder it was high-fives all round for the Scott11 guys at the bottom of the hill.
