It's the most anticipated event in the Slopestyle MTB circuit, with athletes flocking from all corners of the world to pit their skills and talent against one of the most challenging runs they'll face, it's Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler 2019.

The winning runs have never been closer than this year as flawless runs were executed to perfection from the top three riders. The BMX legend and multi-talented, Dawid Godziek, secured himself third place while the veteran slopestyle master, Brett Rheeder, came in second place after closely missing out on the top spot by the comeback kid of Crankworx, Emil Johansson.

Red Bull Joyride, “…the Super Bowl of the mountain biking world.” The season-defining conclusion of the Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship and the Triple Crown of Slopestyle. Bringing together over 25,000 fans on the ground, and millions more around the world, Red Bull Joyride is the biggest stage in the sport.

The last one could go either way IMO but excluding that, and not counting the skipper into the toilet bowl since they both barred it, you’ve got:
Brett: 3
Emil: 4

Even if you give the last one to Brett though, Emil undoubtedly was the smoothest looking rider on the course. It was close, but Emil earned that win.

 If Brett stuck with the windshield wiper and got it, he probably would have. But otherwise, straight double whipping the trick jump took away from what could have been. Brett and Emil were one upping each other feature after feature until that point, but when Emil flip double whipped where Brett double whipped, it was decided.

 Thingy was robbed.
