Come August 18th many of the world's most skilled riders will be flipping, whipping and blowing minds on the most ridiculous slopestyle course ever built—that, in a nutshell, is what the Red Bull Joyride is all about; riders pushing the limits of what's humanly possible….or even imaginable.

Words, however, really don't do Joyride any justice. Check out this video recap of last year's competition to get a hint of what makes seeing Joyride a bucket-list affair.

Want to see Joyride firsthand? This year we'll be showing extensive, run-by-run coverage of Joyride right here on You can even poach the Internet from work to see if Brandon Semenuk holds on to the Joyride crown this year or whether someone new snatches it away from the Whistler local.

Semenuk (center) took the Joyride crown last year and is on a righteous tear this season...Will he make it two-in-a-row this August?

Tune in as the Red Bull Joyride draws near and the competition heats up. We'll have results, videos and much more.
