Skateboarding Meets Four-Cross Racing | Red Bull Feel the Wheel


I’m happy to be here back on the track again on Red Bull Feel the Wheel. It is different than last year. The track changed a lot. You need to pump much harder
to gain speed than last year. Here are lot of different riders with different boards, different styles and I’m really looking forward to skate
with all of them. This year 2015 we have moved
Red Bull Feel the Wheel competition to Benatky nad Jizerou
We are on the local BMX track, because I thought it would get the right level of speed here. We have got BMX starting gate here,
6 riders at the same time and the track is about 100 metres longer. And from what I have heard
from other riders so far, they are maximally satisfied with that. This track makes a fine advantage
for skateboarders, because one has to keep his bodyweight
in the middle or back of the board, unlike downhillers who are used to keep
bodyweight in the front part of the board. My greatest challenge are curves,
I am afraid to ride into it, it is important to get there as the first one, because it’s quite safe to overtake on bumps, but the curve will be a real deal as it is pretty narrow there. People consider me
as a winner already and that’s a big problem,
because I don’t feel it that way. I don’t ride longboard or skateboards
in general much. Especially yesterday, I had to push myself to ride down the starting ramp. But I fell in love with the riding here, And of course, when I am on the track,
want to race and win. Yet, the world is not going to stop
spinning around if I fail. Last year it was slow, it was necessary to push ourselves a lot. The starting ramp
is bigger today so it is a fast ride even for girls. The girls fall off here but they always get up,
and return to ride again. I am absolutely amazed by this event. It has been such a great practice and fun at the same time. I said to myself I would enjoy it. During finals,
I just focused on a quick start. She was not that bad. I am very glad
that so many people have taken part. We can see that
everyone was working hard, their skills were much better
than last year No one knew what to expect last year. I reckon that next year
is going to be the top.

  1. Tbh I think I could be really good at this as I just go for it like in regular skating and wouldn’t care about crashing I would just go for gold

  2. WTF Rebbull steeping down to a new low.. your suposed to be extreme action sports.. this is such a waste of an event

  3. hi there guys XD im makingg a durt bort edit in my local woods and would love the song at the start of this video to be used in it. plz tell me youtube gang whats the name of the krusty song at the beginnin

  4. None if these riders are even fast or Really shredding hard. I need to start coming and shredding these people to pieces with some SUPER FAST skating and shredding

  5. Where does this championship take place? Can you please informe me red bull? I wanna bring this to Brazil.

  6. Street surfing and freestyle on small skateboard is what started skating,then came backyard pool riding,then came vert ramp halfpipes,launch ramps and small trick vert ramps in backyards..then street skating (rail slides on curbs,wall rides,kickflips etc..) and onto much more technical street tricks..Both short boards and longboards have grown in there technical riding styles and tricks quite a bit over the years.. I am 44 years old and I am born and raise in California where i still live and I still skate. I started skating in 1986 and have never stopped. I still skate short boards in the pool and lil street skate,but I mostly shred longboards at high rates of speed and do Raddical glove slides. I am sitting here with my buddy who was born in 1952 and was riding skateboards when it TRULY began when they slapped a piece of two by four on some roller skate wheels,Literally..he been skating and surfing his whole life..so ask the OG's..but the bottom line is it is Super Lame for skate culture to hate skate culture,skater hating on one another..If you Ride a Piece of Wood screwed to trucks and wheels then YOU ARE A SKATER,PERIOD.

  7. I started watching until they kept interrupting footage with a foreign language. I guess you need to be bilingual to enjoy this video. Yes I know I could hit CC but why?

  8. Looks like it could be fun but its too slow. Sorry to hurt all the long boarders feelings but this isn't the right sport for you all. There is a reason you don't see long boarders pumping around the bowl at the skatepark. Its harder to control and maintain speed. I'm all about people having fun, but take off your wheels and put it on a regular board. This way you can still go fast and ollie if need be.

  9. fuuckin hell that would be sooo fun to do, i used to ride my cruiser on our local bmx track when i was younger n we also have a pump track aswell so I would definitely want to give that track a try!! 🙂

  10. This is clearly racist non whites should be mandatory regardless of skill level. If you don't integrate your racist rebull

  11. about 8 hundreds people doesn't know about getting fun, low respect, stiff, disable and feeling macho.. uyeaa tralala

  12. boringly hilarious. i wouldve entered this comp when i was ten and now im 45 and would still do it for fun. gay….turning and pumping!!!! rockstars

  13. I kind of hate what skateboarding has become, those of us from the early days don't care how you hold your board or what shape it is

  14. People who ride longboards are not posers, A poser is someone who says they are something they are not. Just because someone is new or sucks at skating or rides longboards does not make them a poser, and people who are obsessed with calling out "posers" or scooter kids are hella cringy.

  15. And honestly, I'm sure these guys are better skaters than the people bitching about longboarding. I do both, I'm sure they even surf and snowboard

  16. I’m so close to 1k subscribers, please help me out and I’ll subscribe back, I only need 34 more subscribers

  17. The film and edit team did a horrible job. Slow motion of high fives but no real action footage.

  18. im a skateboarder but eould put dome cruiser wheels on my board for this i love snake runs and it would be sick to ollie some of the bumps it looks doable

  19. Pretty much whoever weighs the most will get more speed. Even the 3rd place winner was using a pintail for more weight. Takes away the whole point of skateboarding
