Munich, August 10th 2015 – Slopestyle is coming home. All eyes will be on Brett Rheeder in Whistler this year at Red Bull Joyride.

After three amazing rounds of elite slopestyle action, the FMB Diamond Series now lands in North America for Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler. Competing at this event can be an athlete’s career highlight. Winning it makes you a legend. For Brett Rheeder (CAN), a victory at this FMB Diamond Series event will award him with the inaugural Crankworx Triple Crown of Slopestyle title and 75,000 $CAN, as well as potentially seal an early victory of the FMB World Championship.

For Brett Rheeder, the man to beat for the Crankworx Triple Crown of Slopestyle will be Brandon Semenuk, who has already won this event three times and is no stranger to performing under pressure. Breathing down Rheeder’s neck for the FMB title is the Belgian rider, Thomas Genon who won Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler back in 2012. Just 500pts shy of Rheeder’s top spot, Genon will be turning up the pressure on August 15th. Sitting in third place, 858pts behind Brett Rheeder is Nicholi Rogatkin. The American rider from Boston knows that this final slopestyle contest is his best chance to stay in the hunt for the FMB World Championship. A win at a FMB Diamond Series contest is worth 1,000pts, so all top three athletes are still in contention for the overall title, but with Rheeder’s impeccable riding, there is no room for mistakes.
