Red Bull 1976 Games

More than 30 years ago, Denver was awarded the 1976 Winter Olympics. Then, a coalition of activists and politicians campaigned against it and the games moved to Innsbruck, Austria, instead. Red Bull decided it was time the year 1976 had its day state-side!
The Red Bull 1976 Games took place in Copper Mountain, Colorado. Teams sporting vintage gear competed in two events, "Snowbladecross" and "Old School Air". Teams were judged the Red Bull way: event performance, creativity, and overall 70’s style. Prizes were awarded for best costume and team mojo. The premise of the contest is to wear retro gear to celebrate the Olympics that should have been. Participants did grow mustaches and squeezed into one-piece and got ready to party like it was 1976.
