The future? It’s a lot to lay on the shoulders of one 16-year-old, but Anthony Messere’s proven he’s up to the challenge. Last year he came into the Red Bull Joyride as an alternate.

Can Messere repeat that level of performance this year? Click here to find out and to watch a video of his run from last year.
