From racing to dirt jumping to taking his first Crankworx competition at Crankworx Rotorua in 2016, and finishing his year on the podium, last Max ‘Maxie’ or ‘Freddy’ Fredriksson seems a slopestyle star on the rise. He says Crankworx was always his dream, so making his way to the world’s stage in Rotorua was a moment that changed his life.
“Rotorua was my first and is my favorite Crankworx. The vibe there was so different to all the other ones. It was so relaxed with tons of practice and the course was the best one I’ve ever ridden,” he said.
After kicking off his season at Crankworx Rotorua, he rode a wave of momentum through to Whistler, wrapping up with a third place in Red Bull Joyride. His career highlight?
“For sure the moment when I landed my run during Joyride in Whistler 2016. It’s been my biggest dream to be a part of the event ever since I discovered it on TV as a kid. I will never forget that moment.”
