Red Bull are back with a brand new video, featuring pro BMX rider Panos Manaras, who can be seen tearing up Dubai (and a bit of Abu Dhabi, too) over the course of four minutes.

Manaras rides past all the main iconic spots including the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Fountains, Miracle Gardens… even the empty banks of the much-anticipated Dubai Creek Harbour make an appearance.

Red Bull went pretty big last month, closing down Aquaventure Waterpark and filling it with pro skaters to make one of the best viral videos of the year. So we were pretty excited to see what their latest video had in store.

The UAE hasn’t really experienced much BMX coverage in past, but Manaras appears to have no problem finding enough architectural hotspots for the video.

Check it out below:

The video ends where it started – back at The Terrace at Dubai Creek Harbour – before showing Manaras scribbling “To Be Continued” in a notepad. Can we expect a part two perhaps?

Panos Manaras, the happy-go-lucky 26-year-old Greek has been competing in professional BMX tournaments since 2007, known for his “big bag of tricks” in the BMX Street and BMX Dirt disciplines.

His trip to the UAE wasn’t all work and no play though, Manaras stops throughout the video to pet a camel, drink some karak and smoke some shisha. Everyday stuff.
