MEETING OF THE MINDS PARTS ONE AND TWO

Part One of the Meeting of the Minds video series revealed the top section of the Red Bull Joyride course and the sort of thinking the athletes were using to put it together. With construction of the course underway in Whistler BC, we bring you the second installment of the Meeting of the Minds series. Part three to follow on May 30th. In early February a ‘Meeting of the Minds’ was organised to design the Red Bull Joyride course. The concept was simple: put together something to progress freeride mountain biking while staying true to what the riders want and need in high-level competition. Red Bull and Kokanee Crankworx professional riders Darren Berrecloth, Brandon Semenuk, Mike Montgomery, Thomas Vanderham and Cam Zink joined forces with world-class course builder Paddy Kaye of Joyride Bike Parks to create a series of features that would allow for maximum expression and flow from start to finish. As they brainstormed their dream course, artist Scott Dickson brought their ideas to life and drew the course as the riders provided key feedback and design ideas.
