Derewenko's Red Bull Trip 2005
Words and Photos by Mike Derewenko

This year, for my annual Red Bull trip, I flew the guys out to Denver, Colorado, where we hit some of the best concrete parks ever. We drove back in two separate cars and hit a lot of stuff along the way. From street to parks, with some weird costume parties in between, there were plenty of interesting times. I think the captions pretty much explain every story and over the course of eight days you can see that we covered a lot of ground. 2400 miles actually, along with 12 cases of Red Bull. Thanks Red Bull for helping me out, and I hope that we can continue doing this every year.
