It's time to put the rumors to rest. This summer, the most hotly anticipated event of the week-long Crankworx Festival will once again return when Red Bull Joyride descends upon Whistler on August 15th, 2015. Now moving into it's fifth year, the Red Bull Signature Series event is the definitive slopestyle mountain biking contest, bringing together athletes from all corners of the globe for a gravity-fuelled showdown in the mecca of the North American mountain biking scene.

Last year, Canada's own Brandon Semenuk made history with a first place win that solidified his status as the first athlete to ever win three Red Bull Joyride competitions, catapulting him into an exclusive club in which only he resides. But with tough competition from elite riders like Brett Rheeder and Anthony Messere hungry to join his club, a new chapter in the ever-evolving history of Red Bull Joyride will be written.

Watch the story unfold this summer. Check back in June for more information and details about the event, or follow along online by following @RedBullCanada on Twitter and @RedBullCanada on Instagram to stay updated with everything #Joyride2015.
