Bro Goes For EPIC BMX Ride Through Detroit’s Abandoned Pontiac Silverdome

I’m not even from Detroit and this video gives me chills. There’s something eerie and haunting about abandoned areas and stadium. It’s not hard to close your eyes and imagine them filled with tens of thousands of people, but time has paid a toll and now they just gather cobwebs, waiting to be demolished. Like the Astrodome in Houston or the dozens and dozens abandon Olympics venues all over the world. Former home to the Detroit Lions, the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit is one of those relics.

16-year-old BMX star Tyler Fernengel decided to team up with Red Bull to make the abandoned stadium his own playground. The edit is nothing shot of spectacular.

Tearing up an abandoned stadium like this is an item to add to the bucket list, Bros.
