Watch the Slopestyle finals LIVE from SilverStar Bike Park, British Columbia for Crankworx BC 2021.
The final event on the list is set to wrap the 10 days of competition with a bang. The Slopestyle contest will be the second Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship (SWC) event of the season. The new course at SilverStar has been in the works since the summer of 2019, combining the vision, creativity and muscle of Brett Rheeder and Matt MacDuff.
“At the time, it was to build a progressive course with added smaller features blended into the bigger, more typical slopestyle features,” said Rheeder of the inspiration for the course. “The idea with this was to have a course more welcoming to less experienced riders. However, as time has gone by we were faced with some limitations with the construction and will no longer be adding the smaller features into the mix. The course will, however, be built for maximum progression. Slopestyle courses should be built where the riders don’t have to think about the course but rather on their tricks and runs being put together and it’s my goal to make sure that happens.”
“Working with Matt is great,” he added of the balance between he and MacDuff. “He brings a lot to the table with his ideas and work ethic. We’ve worked alongside for some time now so we both know how things need to get done and to what standard.”
In terms of what riders and fans can expect, Rheeder hinted at the end result only, saying the course will have seven trickable features.
“I’m excited to show everyone what we’ve been working on, I truly think it will be a unique course that the riders will be able to throw down… I just hope that we get lucky with weather and that the riders can feel their fingers while they are riding!”
