Red Bull tells us the inspiring story of mountain bike slopestyle rider Emil Johansson.
Emil was taking the sport by storm and was making a name for himself at a young age. He looked like he was destined to be a prodigy and would break new ground in slopestyle. But then, he was tragically diagnosed with Epstein Barr virus and Hashimoto’s disease. This caused him to have serious issues with his immune system and meant that he couldn’t compete for some time.
He was eventually able to compete again, but his doctors warned that any stress on his body caused by injury could cause seriously impede his recovery. The sport can be highly dangerous, so Emil couldn’t afford to make any mistakes at all. This doc shows us how he managed to get back on his feet and takes us inside his return to competition. Will he be able to get back to his old self? Is he ready to come back for good? Watch the gripping doc and find out.
