Red Bull's Art of Motion

Red Bull has an annual parkour/freerunning competition that takes places in Santorini, Greece every year. This year was their fifth annual competition and 18 people from 12 nations were selected to compete, including three US traceurs: Luci Romberg who won the Best Female Award for a second straight year, Alfred scott winning best trick and  Cory DeMeyers who was  voted  by Red Bull's on site qualifier to compete with the rest of the athletes.

The close-knit community uses the week in Greece to gather and celebrate the sport in one of the best natural environments you can find for freerunning.

France's Yoann Leroux has been at the Red Bull Art of Motion many times and is a true veteran in the freerunning scene. Being a bit older than most of the field does not mean that he would hold back in any way on big drops.
