dashes-2

Freeriders challenge the laws of gravity at the GoPro Mountain Games on a big-air course featuring earthworks of gap jumps, berms and spines. This Silver level Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour event boasts a massive $10,000 cash purse.

Today's best riders have transformed this discipline of mountain biking into a sport of best tricks judged for style and difficulty. Flatspins, can-cans, flips and Supermans wow the twilight crowd as competitors battle it out for cash, and to earn points to be accumulated for the Freeride World Tour series.

The slopestyle comp makes for some of the toughest battles at the Games. Check out these world-class riders as they "step it up" on the jumps at Golden Peak.
