Kjerag is the highest peak in the Lysefjord in Norway, and perfect for base-jumping. It overs a spectacular view and an uninterrupted 12 second free fall, being one of the the highest cliffs in Europe used for base-jumping. From the 1,000-meter-high mountain, base jumpers from all over the world take the plunge into the gorge. Once a year they meet here for the Heliboogie Festival, and celebrate with lots of adrenaline and a colorful and creative show.
Red Bull Skydive Team flies over the world’s most difficult downhill ski slope: The Streif in Kitzbuhel, Austria!
Speeding over the legendary downhill course of the Streif, the Red Bull Skydive Team, of Max Manow, Felix Seifert, Marco Fürst and Marco Waltenspiel, executed a world first flight over the revered track. They all knew it from watching the ski race as children and having now experienced its steepness and dramatic turns from above, their respect for the ski pros that ride it has grown exponentially. “The fact that we were able to fly past the Mausefalle and Hausbergkante with the Wingsuit shows how steep it must be there,” says Marco Fürst enthusiastically after the flight. “That must be just brutal to ski down. It’s not the hardest race in the world for nothing!”
2020 has been a year of perseverance and learning for most of us. We know everything will not be perfect just because the calendar flips to 2021, but we’ll approach it one day at a time and make the most of what lays ahead.
This is a true performance from both FPV Pilote (Feuillie Colas) and Wingsuiter (Vincent Cotte). A brief moment somewhere else, weightlessness.
Here some words of Colas “Quite some work to reach this goal… a lot of development on the machines, a lot of learning on how to fly with the amazing Vincent Cotte, one of the best wingsuiter out there, a lot of hiking… And a good dose of stress and focus 🙂 !!”
