The premier event at Crankworx, the Red Bull Joyride is designed to incorporate slopestyle, dirt jump, and North Shore mountain biking into one freeride competition. The course is designed by professional riders and builders to incorporate as much of the natural terrain as possible, and aims to progress the sport of slopestyle riding. Recognized by the Freeride Mountain Bike Association as one of two Diamond Stops events worldwide, the winner of the Red Bull Joyride takes home a cool $25,000.
Earning the title this year was the Belgian rider Thomas Genon.
Martin Söderström took second, and Cameron McCaul third.
