It's been three years since the former home of the Detroit Lions, the Pontiac Silverdome, has been officially decommissioned — and the elements have taken quite a toll on the structure. 

Until the powers that be figure out what to do with the remaining structure, Red Bull and BMX rider Tyler Fernengel figured the ruins would make a gnarly BMX course. And by the looks of this newly released video, they were right.



Watch Fernengel explore structure in the full video below — which features an artsy fartsy narration courtesy of the structure itself. (And speaking of the Silverdome, there's still time to bid on a urinal autographed by Barry Sanders.)
