Sochi, Russia

In his last Grand Prix for Scuderia Toro Rosso, Max Verstappen’s tyres weren’t the only things that got heated, and after the race he found himself promoted to the Red Bull Racing team. It seems it was a wise move.

Two weeks later in Spain, the 18-year-old became the youngest-ever Formula One race victor and the first Dutchman in history to win a Grand Prix.

Steph Davis: a climbing icon in Utah

MOAB, UTAH, USA

Steph Davis is a climbing icon. The American was the first woman to climb all seven main peaks of the Fitz Roy range in Patagonia. She was also the second female ever to freeclimb the summit of El Capitan in California within one day.

Here, Davis makes use of the mild spring weather for a session on her home turf of Moab. In summer it’s not quite so comfortable, as the temperatures in the state of Utah can reach 45°C and the red rocks store the heat perfectly.

Beersheba, Israel

When local hero Boaz Aquino invited four international pro skateboarders to Israel to show them his home country’s best spots, they were a little apprehensive. However, they discovered a fascinating country and friendly people.

One of the places they visited as part of the Red Bull Shekel Me Not tour was the desert town Beersheba, where street specialist Felipe Gustavo from Brazil (pictured) worked off all the hummus and falafel he’d consumed.
