Watch a Cyclist Turn the Abandoned Silverdome Into a BMX Playground

It's been 13 years since the Detroit Lions played in the abandoned Pontiac Silverdome, but the desolate stadium's extreme state of disrepair has made for a legendary BMX playground in Red Bull's latest video, which features Michigan native Tyler Fernengel.


Watch as Fernengel tears through the cavernous hallways, eventually entering into a field of blue seats and concrete. The most stunning feat comes when he drops from the stadium's club suite level down to the stadium floor, performing a 360-barspin.

"I was 3 years old. And I had just gotten my first dirt bike," Fernengel tells Red Bull of his first time inside the Silverdome. Now, he says, "it's nowhere near the same — it's like a war zone."
