Nicholi Rogatkin Just Made MTB History At RedBull Joyride

Crankworx Whistler’s ultimate event, RedBull Joyride is always worth a watch, but this year’s event was one for the ages. With Whistler covered a thick haze of forest-fire induced smoke, the best mountain bike slopestyle riders in the world faced off on the biggest and baddest course ever made. After winning two out of the last three Crankworx World Tour stops, Nicholi Rogatkin was faced with the opportunity of being the first rider ever to win the elusive Triple Crown of Slopestyle. Canada’s Brett Rheeder was the only one who stood between him and the prize.

After crashing hard on his first run, Rheeder threw down a flawless second run, but Rogatkin edged him out by a narrow margin on run 2 to take the win and the Triple Crown Title. Rogatkin is now the winningest FMB World Tour athlete with 25 total wins.

In one of the more bizarre videos to come out of the cycling world recently, this biker appears to have assembled a fixie frankenbike for on-snow cycling.  Eschewing the traditional fatbike, this maverick of the bike world somehow managed to find traction on steep and snowy Italian roads with road bike tires.  Does it look like fun? No, it looks cold and shitty. Is it impressive? For sure.   Related: Fabio Wibmer Drops Into Red Bull Playstreets Course

Austrian mountain biker Fabio Wibmer has a penchant for riding his bike places it doesn’t belong. We saw him put rubber on snow last year – dropping into a ski resort from a helicopter on his DH bike – setting a long-jump record on a bike on his way down. This year, he showed up at Red Bull Playstreets, that weird Austrian contest where they turn a tiny mountain town into a wildly creative slopestyle course for skiers and snowboarders.

When Brandon Semenuk dropped into his custom-built line for TGR and Anthill Production’s 2015 mountain bike film unReal, he did not expect it would become one of the most-viewed mountain bike segments ever. Semenuk would go on to produce other mind-bending riding segments showcasing his creativity and Jedi-like bike handling skills, but this one was special.  RELATED: Check out Adolf Silva's Insane Save from Darkfest 2019 The crux for this particular unReal segment was that it was all shot in
