Whistler Bike Park Trails: Red Bull Joyride course in the Boneyard, base of Whistler Mountain
“…the Super Bowl of the mountain biking world.” Pinkbike’s Event of the Year 2018. The season-defining conclusion of the Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship and the Triple Crown of Slopestyle. Bringing together over 25,000 fans on the ground, and millions more around the world, Red Bull Joyride is the biggest stage in the sport.
Steeped in 15+ years of tradition, this is the most challenging event on the circuit.

The 14 best riders in the world bring their A-game to this invitational showcase, interpreting a custom-built course and giving it their all.
