The cliff diving elite move to Europe for the season’s second stop

This event will be LIVE on June 30 at 6:45 PM CEST (4:45 PM GMT) on www.redbullcliffdiving.com, Red Bull TV, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Twitch & Instagram.

The Basque city of Bilbao is the first of six European hosts in the 2018 season as well as the first of two stops solely reserved for the men.

Located on the northern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, less than 20km south of the Bay of Biscay, the city lies within one of the most populous metropolitan areas in northern Spain. Ever since the 14th century, Bilbao has been a commercial hub, has experienced heavy industrialisation and has started a social, economic and aesthetic revitalisation process by the iconic Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. The diving location, the Salve Bridge, cuts through one vertex of the triangular site of the museum and will not only welcome the sailors returning from sea, but also the cliff diving elite.

After the huge successes of 2014 and the final showdown in 2015, Bilbao's La Salve Bridge will be the take-off strip for aesthetic freefalls for the third time in the history of Red Bull Cliff Diving.
