PRESENTED BY MONSTER HYDRO
Racing. Action. Glory.
Pinkbike Academy is back for Season 3 in 2022 and it's going to be next level, with high-stakes racing, technical riding challenges, and two Secret Pros setting benchmarks. The winner of Season 3 of Pinkbike Academy presented by Monster Hydro will launch their riding career with a pro contract from Orbea Bikes and a $30,000 prize purse.
It's not easy to break into the pro ranks based on skill and potential alone, especially these days, but Pinkbike Academy is changing that. The incredibly talented riders from Season 1
and Season 2
have received some well-deserved attention from fans and sponsors and many have gone on to ride for factory teams after appearing on the show.
Once again, we are choosing five men
and five women
from around the world to battle it out against each other in a series of riding-related challenges at Big White. With our two Secret Pros setting the times to beat, we'll be able to see how the contestants stack up against two of the world's best enduro racers. This 10-part series will see riders fighting it out each week with only the best riders progressing through each round for a chance to claim this career-changing prize
We're excited to produce the third season of Pinkbike Academy and introduce the world to a whole new wave of riders.Want in?
The show will be judged by well-known industry insiders and pros, and the riders we select for the Academy will need a whole lot of speed and fitness to compete with the times that our Secret Pros set. Do you have the skills, personality, and perseverance to make it through?
This could be your opportunity
to turn your passion into a career. This isn't just free product and small travel budget, but a proper chance at a professional contract and the incredible support that comes with it.
