The famous Russian tracer arranged free running on KAMAZ-master team’s sight
The top Russian tracer, one of the world's parkour elite, Evgeny "Archi" Aroyan, performed extreme stunts on KAMAZ-master sight in Naberezhnye Chelny.
The championship community of the legendary racing team, which won international Silk Way Rally in July, and Evgeny Aroyan, who won bronze in the most prestigious world free running competition Red Bull Art of Motion in the same month, were realized in an extraordinary video with participation of the head of KAMAZ-master Vladimir Chagin.
Archie first demonstrated new combinations of the most difficult elements of free running against the background of iconic trucks, playing an exemplary employee who rushes to the workplace and overcomes unthinkable obstacles on his way, and Vladimir Chagin played the usual role of a strict but fair team boss.
Vladimir Chagin: “This is a unique project in which both Evgeny and our team had to do a lot for the first time. Despite the game format of the video, the tasks that the trucks and employees performed became a kind of challenge and good training before the upcoming competitions for the accuracy of maneuvering, coordination of teamwork and a detailed check of many work processes. I am devoted to motorsport, but the philosophy of parkour about the absence of boundaries turned out close to me. Any obstacle can be overcome, there is almost nothing impossible in life. "
Evgeny Aroyan: “I performed all the elements of free running from this video in such unusual conditions for the first time. Especially for this project, right in the course of training, I came up with completely new combinations of famous tricks, and the incredible location and conditions gave additional complexity to this project. I do not believe myself that I could do all this!"
Two-meter double bullet, 360 front flip on a truck in motion, king kong on unstable tires and other elements that Archie managed to perform during filming can be seen in the exciting video on redbull.com.
The project partner is Goodyear, one of the largest tire manufacturing companies in the world.
