With the highs (and lows) of Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx still fresh in the minds of the riders, it was time to hit the reset button and head to the next stop on the FMB calendar -- FISE Edmonton 2016. With less than 200 points between 1st and 3rd in the FMB World Tour rankings, riders like Nicholi Rogatkin and Brett Rheeder were pulling out all the stops on this short but rad course.
Set in the river valley of one of Canada's most northern cities, it may seem a bit unlikely for Edmonton, Alberta to host a FISE World Tour stop and an FMB Gold event, but the city, usually known for hockey and...hockey, opened its arms and brought the crowds all weekend.
Congrats to Brett Rheeder on his first FISE World Tour win and his second FMB Gold event win.
