The 2019 Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship comes to a dramatic close in the mecca of MTB with the iconic Red Bull Joyride. What a week of mountain biking!
In what might have been one of the most emotional moments in Slopestyle mountain bike history, Emil Johansson (SWE) stepped up to the top of the podium today at the biggest contest is the discipline, Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler, Canada.
“Getting all the tricks together was really hard,” he said of his 95.75 scoring run. “I was standing on top before my second run and I was so nervous. If anyone would have beat my run I would have needed to improve my run I already did, and I don’t even know if I could get all these combos in a row again, since it was so hard to get them all together.”
Rheeder threw down a flawless second run, bringing in the loudest cheers of the day from the 30,000+ crowd that descended on Whistler to watch it all go down. He would score a 94.5, just shy of first.
And while the Triple Crown evaded him this year, Brett Rheeder does walk away with the overall Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship title from the points he amassed over the course of the season. This is the fourth time he’s won the Crankworx overall.
