Red Bull Indus Trail: Freerunning in photos

Action from the finals in India to decide a winner who'll go on to Red Bull Art of Motion in 2014.

On November 13, eight of the best freerunners from across India took part in Red Bull Indus Trail at Phoenix Mills in Mumbai. They were guided and judged by Kuwaiti Red Bull athlete Mohammad Al Attar, also known as 'Double Trouble'.

The Phoenix Mills car park was transformed for the day, with BMX riders, skateboarders and B-Boys warming up the crowd before the main event. Check out our photos of the best of the action.
