What’s the best way to conquer a lifelong fear of heights? For Scottish BMX star Kriss Kyle, throwing yourself out of a helicopter is one way of doing it. The unique attempt is the first trick in the riders’ latest edit, which sees him turn the unique architecture of Dubai into a giant BMX park.
Opening with a huge cityscape shot, we see Kriss leaning out of a helicopter as he approaches the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel, one of the world’s tallest hotels and most unique buildings. We then see him jumping from the helicopter – 720 feet up – onto a helipad on top of the hotel, before immediately tackling a second equally daring drop and heading into the building itself.
