Russians Compete In Extreme Sports On Icy Baikal Lake

Russian fans of Extreme Sports gathered on the ice of the famous Siberian Lake Baikal to enjoy an annual festival.

Over 120 people from around the country came to watch and take part in ten different disciplines including races on Motorcycles, Quadrocycles, Buggy, Carts, Accuracy Parachute Jumps into a pool of icy water and more.

Many of the participants came not only for the contest, but also a chance to show off their skills surrounded by Baikal's stunning scenery.

This Baikal Rift festival was first staged in 2016, and organisers say they plan to make it a yearly event to attract more people to explore both sports and nature.
