Slopestyle action returns to the USA for the first time since the last round of the Colorado Freeride Festival's last stop in 2017 and to Highland Mountain Bike Park for the first time in 7 years, when the last Claymore Challenge took place.
"The CLIF Slopestyle is the only event of its kind in the United States this year, and the final chance for Gold-level athletes to accumulate points prior to Crankworx Joyride. In keeping with Highland and the Fox US Open’s commitment to providing proving grounds for new riders, the Bronze-level competition is open to anyone who’s ready to throw their hat in the ring.
“We’ve been looking at ways to bring a slopestyle event to the U.S. Partnering with CLIF Bar at Highland is the perfect fit. Highland already has a slopestyle course on the mountain and shares our vision of creating opportunities for athletes. We’re looking forward to a fun event!” – Clay Harper, Fox US Open of Mountain Biking.
The Riders List is a who's who of the slopestyle and freeride world, including plenty of current and past Crankworx riders, such as Nicholi Rogatkin, Carson Storch, Brayden Barret-Hay and many more.
