Red Bull Phenom: The search starts now

What if one video could catapult you to the X Games in LA or Munich?
By Chris Stanton

In partnership with ESPN, Red Bull have launched the first ever global action-sports video contest offering the opportunity to compete at X Games!

From April 8, young, aspiring athletes aged 15–19 are invited to submit a short video of less than 60 seconds showcasing their skills in one of three different disciplines, Mountain Bike Slopestyle, BMX Street and Skate Street, for a shot at the big time.

The quest's sole aim is to seek out the best young, undiscovered talent, with a judging panel sifting through the video entries.

Steve Caballero (Skate Street), Mike Escamilla (BMX Street) and Richie Schley (MTB Slopestyle) will each select six finalists to compete at the Red Bull Phenom contest at X Games Munich on June 27-30 (MTB) and X Games Los Angeles on August 1-4 (BMX and Skate).

Of the six finalists in each discipline, one will be declared the Red Bull Phenom winner.
