Sponsored Video: Ryan Doyle Free Runs Through History

Parkour at the Seven Wonders of the World - Machu PicchuLiverpool-based PK phenomenon, Ryan Doyle, must have thought that all his birthdays had come at once when Red Bull got in touch to say they wanted to send him on an all-expenses-paid freerunning tour of some of world’s most iconic cultural locations. The epic adventure was orchestrated in the name of Red Bull’s latest movie endeavour – “Parkour Around the Globe”, a feast of freerunning action combined with cultural discovery.

Ryan, who is 27-years-old, has twice won Red Bull’s prestigious Art of Motion competition. He is rightly considered one of the best traceurs on the face of the planet at the moment and is credited with having introduced his own innovative sense of style to the sporting discipline, helping to develop and progress it significantly. As such, he was the ideal candidate for this particular high-octane Red Bull mission.

The rare privilege that was bestowed upon the talented British traceur was the opportunity to freerun at historic locations across the globe that most people could only ever dream of visiting. The list of legendary world heritage sites included the Colosseum in Rome, home of the legendary gladiators, the ruins of Machu Picchu, one-time centre of the mighty Inca civilisation and the Taj Mahal, India’s palace of love.

Asides from showcasing some top-notch freerunning from a global sporting elite, “Parkour Around the Globe” is actually quite a touching movie. Ryan reveals a spiritual and intellectual depth that may not otherwise be immediately apparent and his reaction to the world’s different cultures is often humbling. You’d need to have ice coursing through your veins to watch this video and come away without feeling a fondness for either parkour or Ryan Doyle.
