Canadian junior downhill racer Jackson Goldstone has earned himself a Red Bull sponsorship and helmet after a stellar breakout first year in the World Cup series.
Goldstone ended 2021 as World Cup overall champion, Junior World Champion and winner of three World Cups in his first year as a junior. He is also a former Whip-Off World Champion and has starred in a number of viral mountain bike videos since he was still riding a balance bike.
Goldstone announced the news on Instagram
, saying he thought he was showing up to do a Fox photoshoot with Finn Iles, but then the Canadian Red Bull athlete presented him with his own Red Bull lid instead.
Goldstone will race with a Red Bull helmet in the World Cup series next year and becomes the third junior downhill racer of recent times to earn the attention of the energy drink giant following Vali Holl and Finn Iles.
Jackson's family was there to celebrate.
