After events at the Pyramids and Red Square, it would seem nothing could top the 2010 Red Bull X-Fighter tour. Appearances, however, can be deceptive and the 2011 series is shaping up to be even bigger.
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series is high diving at its most death-defying – an acrobatic descent into water from heights of up to 28m. Once in the air, the divers have approximately three seconds to coordinate their movements before they break the surface of the water at around 100kph (60mph).
Red Bull Air Race GmbH confirmed that for the future success and development of the sport, the World Championship will take a one-year break in 2011. The organization will use this opportunity to fast track the technological advancements currently in the making which would further improve the already high levels of safety.
