Red Bull Art of Motion (AoM) is an event where elegance and spectacle are at the forefront. After last year’s hiatus, AoM will return this year in a new location: Matera (in Basilicata, Southern Italy), the picturesque European Capital of Culture 2019 and one of the most fascinating and unique places in the world.
Matera is the perfect theater to show off an equally unique competition. The best freerunners in the world will compete on the roofs of the city, showing off technique, style and creativity. 12 men and 6 women will be competing on October 5th for the title at the main event.
If you came to Beast Coast 2019, you will see a familiar face: our guest athlete Dom Di Tommaso will be freerunning through the rooftops of Matera!
Other participants will include the winners of the 2017 Red Bull Art of Motion (Alexander Titarenko), Air Wipp Challenge (Krystian Kowalewski), NAPC (Ed Scott), and Lion City, an Italian wildcard along side winners of the online and onsite qualifications.
Check them out as Dom Di Tommaso, Alexander Titarenko, and Jason Paul discover the city with spectacular acrobatics, jumping and running among Matera’s rocks and roofs, and get a taste of what to expect from the competition itself.
