We may be a bit late to the party, but Monster Energy recently launched their new video series called ‘Come With Us,’ and it’s amazing. The series presents some of the brand’s sponsored athletes from all parts of the Monster Energy spectrum – from extreme sports to moto sports to MMA. Check all six episodes below:
Episode 01: Oliver Solberg
What does it really take to become a champion? How do you follow in the footsteps of World Rally legends? For Oliver Solberg, it’s all about chasing the perfect stage. A near out-of-body rhythm where you can feel everything in the car all at once; power, braking, and grip-levels; at every wheel turn.
Episode 1 of Monster Energy’s ‘Come With Us’ series rides on-board with 19-year-old Oliver Solberg, as he devotes every waking second to chasing that elusive perfect stage in pursuit of the World Rally Championship title. Hit play to watch…
Episode 02: Giulia Tanno
A feeling of freedom and flying; blink and you’ll miss it. In Big Air skiing every single second count. The pool of awesome talent in women’s slopestyle has been getting stronger every season, and leading the way is 22-year-old Giulia Tanno.
Having debuted on the competition circuit just over seven years ago, Giulia takes the huge airs and huge risks in her stride, as she blazes a trail for women’s slopestyle. Hit play on Episode two of Monster Energy’s ‘Come With Us’ series to take a fresh look at Giulia’s career and free skiing story…
Episode 03: Nic Von Rupp
“When the wave stands up so tall behind you, it erases the sunlight… and that’s when the shadow overtakes you. It’s the Monster behind you… you’re very close to the Danger Zone.” Welcome to Nic Von Rupp’s world.
The 30-year-old surfing prodigy has already clocked a successful competitive career and changed direction to focus his sights on becoming the best big wave rider in the world. For the uninitiated, it is a sight to behold, waves that could dwarf apartment buildings; speeds in excess of 80km/h; the full force of the ocean harnessed in wave form. Yet Rupp stares it all down with a relaxed stance and a sunbathed smile, and hours and hours of preparation. Don’t just take our word for it; Come With Us on a big wave ride like you’ve never seen before….
Episode 04: Adolf Silva
Adolf Silva’s passion is to be on a bike, it is what he lives for. He risks his life for it; because it’s what moves him; what makes him feel alive. Knowing that every day he can improve and grow with his sport motivates him immensely. Not our words, but 23-year-old Silva’s.
A true lifestyle action sports athlete, Silva’s career has already encompassed dizzying highs and total lows – not least when at age 17 he spent 10 days in a coma due to a crash, only to bounce back from injury to land the first-ever triple backflip on a Slopestyle bike. If it’s got wheels he’ll ride it, and if there’s a ramp he’ll likely jump it. Come With Us and take a ride with the Spanish dirt shredder…
Episode 05: Joanna Jedrzejczyk
You don’t get to be a multiple Muay Thai champion, and a leading mixed martial arts fighter in the UFC without being truly and undeniably hardcore. Joanna Jedrzejczyk – or JJ to her fans – knows this, and the string of opponents she’s knocked out don’t need telling again either.
There’s an incredible flip side to the 33-year-old from northern Poland too, as JJ pushes herself to the limit outside of the ring too. “My biggest opponent is time because there are only 24 hours in the day and I have so many things going on,” explains JJ. “I’m just trying to live my best life. In or out of the cage, with or without the belt, I carry myself as a champ and work on my legacy, every single day.” Come With Us to get a glimpse at JJ’s incredible story…
Episode 06: Fabio Quartararo
Meet El Diablo. Born on the sunny southern coast in Nice, France; if ever there was a rider on an ascent to superstardom – then Fabio Quartararo is surely it. The son of a former French 125cc motorcycle champion, Fabio cut his teeth in motocross at a young age before moving to Spain to get on the road to elite racing. He quickly progressed through the Pre-GP Mediterranean ranks, counting off the championships with nonchalant ease. Further titles quickly followed as he won six Spanish titles, including consecutive CEV Moto3 titles in 2013 and 2014.
At age 20, the big time came calling when he made his first MotoGP appearance in the 2019 season with Petronas Yamaha SRT. Record-breaking laps and pole positions soon followed, and this year the French ace replaced none other than Valentino Rossi at the factory Yamaha racing team. Come With Us to witness Fabio’s rise and blistering pace, now at the bars of factory machinery.
