Shaun White recently failed to renew his contract with Red Bull. This is huge! Shaun White was sponsored by Red Bull for four years, and his contract with Red Bull was valued over $ 1 million annually.
According to All Voice, Red Bull Media House’s Patrice Radden commented on Shaun’s departure saying: “After four exceptional year as a Red Bull athlete, Shaun White has decided to pursue other business ventures. Then end of the partnership has been on amicable terms.”
Shaun’s agent at Creative Artists Agency is said to be seeking a new beverage contract worth three times the amount, as stated by ESPN.
Red Bull had a great streak with Shaun; looking back they even made him a secret half pipe called Project X for him to practice on. This half pipe made big news and a lot of people jealous.
Where will Shaun White take his business? Hard to say but we can expect to see big things from this all-star athlete.
