The event win, the Slopestyle World Championship, the Triple Crown. They’re all on the line for one man. No rider has ever won all three in a season (when Rogatkin won the Triple Crown in 2018, Rheeder won the overall SWC). Could this be the biggest pay day in mountain bike competition history?

Go the locals. Qualifiers have wrapped on the Pump Track, and in the top or close, the Kiwi riders are on track to shine. Watch for Billy Meaclam (who qualied first) and Tuhoto-Ariki Pene (qualifying second) to challenge past winner Tomas Lemoine, and Jenna Hastings (qualifying third) and Shania Rawson (fourth qualifier) to give Kialani Hines (first qualifier) a run for her money.
