Here's what to watch for with the Red Bull Global Sports Series in 2016:


Now in its 16th season, the world's fastest sport on skates - Ice Cross Downhill - visits Québec City, Canada; Munich, Germany; Jyv�skyl�-Laajis, Finland; and Saint Paul, MN. Athletes race four-at-a-time, shoulder-to-shoulder at speeds up to 40 mph, down intimidating and treacherous courses carved into urban landscapes. This year's headlines include:

- A new Women's World Championship division with female athletes competing at all four Red Bull Crashed Ice races.

- Can Canadian Scott Croxall defend his crown or will there be a new champion for the seventh straight year?

- Will this be the year that American Cameron Naasz, who was second overall in 2015 and third in 2014, finally wins a title?

- Up to 20 cameras, including POV, Cineflex and Cable/Fly cams, bring all the fast-paced action to life on television.


Now in its ninth season, the world's only sanctioned air race tests 12 highly skilled competition pilots who navigate a low-level aerial racetrack of air-filled pylons with the aim of finishing in the fastest time possible. Using the fastest and most agile racing planes at eight events, spanning seven countries, over three continents, pilots are challenged in a pure motor-sport competition.

- The tour visits one of the world's most famous venues for motorsport, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, for the first time ever.

- A new world champion will be crowned as defending champion and legend Paul Bonhomme retired following the 2015 campaign.

- A return to the famed Lausitzring in Germany where fans will witness the first race there since 2010, with the finale again held in Las Vegas - crowning the new champion.

- Up to 25 cameras, including in-plane POVs, capture all the sport's spectacular aerial footage, while new GPS-based graphics have up-to-the-second race positioning.

RED BULL CLIFF DIVING WORLD SERIES (www.redbullcliffdiving.com)

Created in 2009 and quickly securing its place as the official discipline of the FINA World Aquatics Championship, divers descend almost 10 stories in three seconds, reaching speeds of 52 mph before splashing into the water below. This year's headlines include:

- The expansion of the women's division, with more stops around the world

- Can Britain's Gary Hunt capture his sixth championship in the last seven years?

- An incredible 10 camera views highlight action that's judged by some of the sport's legends, including U.S. Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis and multi-time Russian Olympic medal winner Dmitri Sautin

RED BULL X-FIGHTERS WORLD TOUR (www.redbullxfighters.com)

Established in 2001 and now with more than 50 events under its belt, this is the most prestigious Freestyle Motocross (FMX) series in the world. The globe's best FMX riders return for a 15th consecutive year to its spiritual home - the Las Ventas bullring in Madrid.

- A roster of former champions including France's Tom Pag�s, New Zealand's Levi Sherwood, Spain's Dany Torres and defending champ Clinton Moore of Australia.

- An FS1 televised event features up to 25 unique perspectives, including Cineflex, Cable/Fly, Highspeed and POV cameras, showcasing some of the most insane aerial motorcycle artistry and competition seen in sports today.
