RED BULL JOYRIDE BRINGING DIRT, DESIGN & EVOLUTION TO KOKANEE CRANKWORX
Red Bull Joyride will anchor the final weekend of the Kokanee Crankworx Festival in Whistler B.C. delivering a slopestyle event designed for the athletes, by the athletes.
When handed the keys to the mountain, you best deliver the goods. Or go big trying. Prepare for Red Bull Joyride, the newly minted anchor event of the 2011 Kokanee Crankworx Festival, on Saturday, July 23, in Whistler, BC. Fusing elements of slopestyle, dirt jump and North Shore mountain biking, Red Bull Joyride will culminate into one gravity-fed, season-defining freeride mountain bike competition, the likes of which Whistler Mountain has never seen.
Construction will begin at the base on May 1, on a course 100 percent inspired and designed by professional mountain bike athletes. While incorporating as much of the natural terrain as possible, the athletes conceived their ultimate playground, lined with gargantuan manmade features to showcase their skill and imagination. With so much talent in the room and passion on the table, we decided to capture the collaboration and design process.
