The Red Bull Planica is only a 400-meter race, but those 400 meters happen to be on Planica’s ski jump hill. It’s at least 45 degrees, and no amount of slick editing can change the fact that this race is gruelling, miserable, and reduces serious athletes to crawling on their hands and knees, like children. If only Red Bull gave you wings.
Know what? We’ll be at the ski lodge.
