The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series comes from the stunning location of Malcesine's Scaliger Castle on Italy's Lake Garda on the 13th and 14th of July 2013.

The fourth stop of the 2013 tour sees a major new element added to all the usual adrenaline-fuelled antics. Saturday 13th July will see female athletes competing for the first time. The ladies will be taking the plunge from a 20m platform mounted on the castle wall.

On Sunday 14th July the men join in the fun from their 27m board. Gary Hunt, last season's champ and winner of the recent Azores event, will be looking to consolidate his overall lead. However, with Russia's Artem Silchenko and Orlando Duque close behind, he can't afford even the tiniest slip-up. Mexican youngster, Jonathan Paredes, will be looking to build on the podium finish he gained in Portugal.
