Heart in your throat stuff with cash rolls, bar spins, can-cans and tailwhips - Red Bull TV comes home to Sky Sport in multi-year deal
If you’re stuck trying to understand the lingo when it comes to MTB action ahead of Crankworx (Mar 5 – 8, Sky Sport 8), feel free to tap into the Red Bull dictionary right here.  Basically, it’s all heart-stopping stuff, and that’s just mountain biking.  
“We’ve just inked a long-term deal with Red Bull TV which sees Sky Sport as the new home for Red Bull World Series Cliff Diving, the Red Bull X-Fighters Season, Red Bull Ice Cross World Championship Season, Drift Masters and the World Enduro Super Series – just to name a few,” says Tex Teixeira, Sky’s Chief Content Officer.
“We’ll be sharing hours and hours of the most exhilarating action sports content on Earth thanks to this exciting new partnership with Red Bull – from live events and highlights through to inspiring stories from their huge catalogue of docos and adventures in some of the world’s most exotic places.”
