Manaras Doing His Best Palm Tree Impersonation

Dubai has seen a lot, and a lot of people have seen Dubai. People love to explore our city, by land or by sea. We are used to seeing stunts done on high rise buildings, fast cars blazing down SZR or incredible desert excursions. Now, Red Bull, with Greek BMXer Panos Manaras, along with Red Bull UAE, have shown us another side of Dubai, that by BMX bike. The resulting video and photos are stunning.

Who is Panos?

"Panagiotis 'Panos' Manaras describes himself as a simple man, crazy enough to do some of the most extreme moves on his BMX… Greek athlete Manaras has even built a mini-ramp at home, complete with a spine so he, his brother and their friends can practise round the clock….you can usually find him at contests such as the Simple Session, Ghetto Games, the BMX World Championships and BMX Masters." Red Bull Website. 

"From the first moment I was shocked, so many pristine spots and magical setups. Circular benches, steep ledges and peculiar architecture – paradise for a BMX rider."
