Whistler Bike Park Trails: Red Bull Joyride course in the Boneyard, the base of Whistler Mountain
“…the Super Bowl of the mountain biking world.” The biggest and most storied Slopestyle course on the World Tour circuit, and a pivotal event as the discipline’s best battle for points for the Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship and the Triple Crown of Slopestyle. Bringing together over 35,000 fans on the ground, and millions more around the world, Red Bull Joyride is the biggest stage in the sport.
Staged in the “Boneyard,” the dirt stadium at the base of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, Red Bull Joyride offers the best Slopestyle mountain bikers on the planet two runs – that’s two chances for glory, two opportunities to throw down high-scoring tricks and move up the leader board, and two moments in time to leave their mark on the history of the sport.
