For the 2008 Red Bull Elevation, we moved the contest to the Parque Metropolitano in Guadalajara, Mexico for a change of flavour. While Guadalajara certainly doesn’t have the glam of Whistler, everybody loved going down to Mexico to hang for a few days and chill out in May.
This video was produced by Red Bull Mexico; be sure to watch the HD version of the video.
Video footage of the last Red Bull Elevation held in Canada – our last contest in Whistler. Red Bull filmed the entire event as they always have on crazy HD cameras, and almost none of the footage has ever been seen. In the past, they produced 24 minute highlight promos for television (see the other 2005 and 2006 videos linked below), and unfortunately for this final year, only 3 short clips were produced, and they went straight to YouTube. A real shame… Maybe someday this footage will make it’s way into the public domain.
This is the official full length video put out by Red Bull, and is a great look at the 2006 contest. I’ll link to some of the other videos in another post as well. This event took place over the Canada Day long weekend in 2006.
Here’s the first Red Bull Elevation video in it’s entirety. This is the official full length video put out by Red Bull, and is a great look at the original 2005 contest. This was the first Red Bull contest we put on, and it was epic. It took the world by storm, and by the time the 2006 contest happened, every badass on the planet wanted to be there to ride it. The contests stayed in Whistler for 3 years, then we did one in Guadalajara, MX which was the last one we ever did.
