Teva Mountain Games 2011 – Teva Slopestyle
www.tevamountaingames.com Freeriders challenge the laws of gravity at the Teva Mountain Games on a big-air course featuring earthworks of gap jumps, berms and spines. 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 and the High Jump bonus round gives all the riders one more chance to walk away with a little more cash by one-upping the competition in height and style points. The slopestyle comp makes for some of the toughest battles in the Games. Check out these world-class riders as they “step it up” on the jumps at Golden Peak.
The country’s largest celebration of adventure sports, music, and the mountain lifestyle returned once again when The Teva Mountain Games were on in Vail, June 2-5, 2011.
