RedBull Giants of Rio
FLASHBACK: The original adventure team race that all others would be compared too
It was 2004. A time before Rio De Janeiro had secured the 2016 Olympic Games and my first time in this Brazilian city. Crazy from the first time we left the hotels front doors.
A huge setup saw teams racing from all around the globe. Some RedBull backed, others bringing the biggest individual stars in each sport from their country coming to attempt to win a slice of the prize money.
RedBull Australia put together a wining team of:
- Swimmer: Ky Hurst – He walks underwater
- MTB: Sid Taberlay – Watch this: bunny hopping uphill barriers
- Pilot: Jonny Durand – Watch this: flying the morning glory
- Runner: Courtney Atkinson
