A look back at the bike season in pictures.
The XCO track at Vallnord featured some very technical downhill sections but the riders biggest concern was the the altitude that the climbs reached. Some 2,000 metres above sea level.
Martin Söderström threw down an extremely technical run for his Joyride second round - even stomping a mid-run triple tailwhip - but stumbled on a 360 double tailwhip attempt at the end.
And sideways at the Whip Contest
Pre-season favourite for many, Barel smashed the first round of the EWS which prompted some to predict a white wash. It didn't work out though. His practicing of those stages sparked controversy and a five minute time penalty at the Whistler round scuppered things further. Fourth in Finale.
It's Tuesday evening at Red Bull Rampage 2013 and Mads Haugen has embraced the Utah terrain with open arms. He held this whip past 90 so long, it looked like he was never gonna let go... Floating!
Being the first rider to backflip the canyon gap doesn't go without recognition. Kelly McGarry was awarded with second place from the judges and first in the hearts of the fans who voted online.
It wasn't to be for Gee as he missed out on the overall World Cup crown.
Last man down under full pressure, Stevie come down the line nearly 2.8 seconds ahead of Gee Atherton and the crowd goes ballistic.
