A Dakar Mini storming through the dunes, a specially adjusted snowboard, one rope and two talented athletes.

This isn’t your usual Red Bull fare. Part of the Raw 100 series – where film makers are given three rules: The rules for each video are simple: 100 seconds in length, no slow motion footage, and no music. By having to work within these limitations, filmmakers have to shake up the box and put their creativity on blast. In creating this latest addition to the Raw 100 series produced by Rupert Walker, Brandon Semenuk pointed it south to California from his home in Canada to breathe new life into an old Downhill BMX track that hasn’t been used since the discipline was an X Games event in the early 2000s. Prepare to be amazed!
“This year I was able to spend an amazing two month trip to Brisbane Australia constantly filming Alex throwing down on spots everywhere we went. We even took a road trip across Australia to Sydney. Alex is the most fearless and toughest person I have ever met. To see him take his insane park riding we all know him for and take it to the streets was legendary! I couldn’t be more hyped to document it. With all that said I’m so happy to announce This is Alex Hiam for Vans.” – Dave Pendleton
James Foster feeds off progression and pushes riding to the limits. He splits time between traveling the world with Nitro Circus, riding big contests and filming first-time tricks on custom ramps. Just like the insanity you’re about to witness at Pastrana Land.
Mark Wahlberg has more money than he knows what to do with. Last year alone, he earned a cool $32 million. Wahlberg also enjoys golf a great deal. So, to put his money to good use, Wahlberg hired Back Nine Greens to build a golf paradise in his backyard, complete with white-sand bunkers and an elevated green. The practice facility is made from artificial turf, so maintenance isn’t an issue. It also looks incredibly real! Hit the jump for some other tiny courses the company has done to backyards.
After two days of intense action, Red Bull Cape Fear has come to a close for 2016, with 18-year-old South Coast surfer Russell Bierke the last man standing. The event ran like no other in surfing history. A week of wild weather in Sydney Australia saw Cape Solander maxed out on day one, with many competitors claiming it was far-and-away the biggest the infamous break has ever been surfed. The surfers were aware of the risks that came with paddling out, yet deemed it worth the reward. A unanimous surfer vote saw the contest kick-off in barely surfable 12-foot [3.66m] barrels and from the first horn all 16 invitees were ready to charge, take risks, pull in and lay it all on the line.
The boy are back with number 3, bigger and better than ever. They have created a demon child made from dirt, where a slam hits your body harder than a car crash. A new guest rider, a new course but still that same Pure Darkness we all love. We’ve been waiting for this video for a while now, and sweet mother of god it didn’t disappoint. Big shout out to @samreynolds26. Now off to hospital I go to get my jaw put back into place.
Lucas Fiederling’s Where We Come From video is full of top riders, but there’s probably nobody more exciting than Finland’s Eniz Fazliov. Always a standout in any company, Fazliov is as respected in America as he is in Europe, due to almost continuous touring with his sponsors Volcom and Emerica. Watch his insane part!

Brock Lesnar is a UFC fighter once again. He’s also a WWE Superstar. How does that work, exactly? That’s not entirely clear. But WWE released a statement in an attempt to clarify Saturday night after the UFC announced that Lesnar would be fighting at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas. That’s good enough for me. I can’t f**ken wait. This card is going to be nuts.

“I was reviewing footage from the weekend and on back cam I see another wingsuit distantly following — I’m thinking “how the hell was there another wingsuiter on exit and they snuck up behind and magically exited right after me.” After I exit a mini rock valley, the wingsuiter dives down and pulls up right on top of me, and then I see that it’s not a wingsuit, it’s a bird that followed me all the way from exit through my line. Eerily this was from the ‘fly free’ exit.” – Brendan Weinstein.
