The event, which was one of five major mountain biking events during Julys Crankworx festival in Whistler, will air on NBC on Saturday, Oct. 16 at 5 p.m. on the Jeep World of Adventure Sports.
The Slopestyle Expression Session was an invitation-only event for the top mountain bikers who came to Whistler to show off their moves with their biggest lines and best tricks.
The course, which was designed by Richie Schley, had a lot of everything for the riders to choose from huge gap jumps, drops, a road gap, a wall ride, a quarterpipe, a massive teeter-totter, and a step up onto some scaffolding.
Highlights of the event include Kirt Voreiss crash and recovery on the teeter-totter, huge moves by Richie Schley and Cedric Gracia off the road gap, backflips over the big gaps by Kyle Ebbett and Cameron Zink, Kyle Straits backflip onto the scaffolding in the semi-finals, and Cameron McCauls huge BMX tricks, backflips and quarterpipe moves.
But youll have to tune in to NBC to see what the cameras caught and to see who wins in the end.
Crankworx, which has been billed as Whistlers signature summer festival, will be back next year from Aug. 3 to 7.
