Watch a Red Bull Biker Shred Through an Abandoned Drowned Village

In 1985, a funky weather pattern broke down a dam in rural Argentina, inundating the town of Epecuén with 33 feet of water. Completely uninhabitable, Epecuén's thriving tourist industry and 280 businesses were left submerged. After 25 years, the waters recessed and a lone resident named Pablo moved back. Using the unique ruins of Epecuén's infrastructure as a playground, master bike handler and trials rider Danny MacAskill paid his respects to the city. 

 


Red Bull was there to capture MacAskill's visit, and the results are hauntingly beautiful.
