Ultimate Parkour Challenge
MTV brings the world's fastest-growing extreme sport to American audiences for the first time with Ultimate Parkour Challenge.
The essence of parkour is as simple as a game of chase: athletes move as efficiently as possible from point A to point B. However, unlike a regular track and field race, parkour is performed in any and every environment. Athletes must roll, climb, leap, flip and fly over walls, cars, stairs, railings, and ten-foot rooftop gaps between five-storey buildings.
Each episode will take viewers to locations around southern California including The Queen Mary, Venice Beach, Hollywood High, and many others. Six of the World's best parkour athletes, including Danny Ilabaca, Ryan Doyle, Oleg Vorslav and Tim Schieff, will challenge themselves and each other as they put their parkour skills to the test in different urban environments.
Starting 6 April 2011
