Video: Red Bull Joyride 2017 Course Preview

8/11/2016 : sicklines

If you’re anxious to see what the 2017 Red Bull Joyride course is going to be like this year be sure to watch the video inside. It is a 360degree video via the GoPro Omi so if you’ve got the proper hardware it looks even more impressive!

Shot entirely on the all new GoPro Omni unit, slated for release next week, experience a ride on the all new 2016 Red Bull Joyride course like you’ve never seen it before. Captured in a full 4k, 360 degree experience, riders Ryan Howard, Justin Wyper and Dustin Gilding give you a preview of what to expect on August 21 when Red Bull Joyride returns to Whistler.

The 2016 course follows the same flow through the Whistler Bike Park allowing lots of flow and little braking – as the saying goes, ‘don’t fix it if it ain’t broken’. But, you can always make it better. An all new start section and flat-drop puts riders right into the action out of the gate with a total course length ringing in at 650m. The classic Joyride Cabin feature has also received a bit of a facelift, getting some new real-estate on the course along with a ‘whale tail’ built into the roof as opposed to the classic flat-drop from previous years. The show stopping final feature is one of the largest in the history of the event, weighing in at a massive 30ft.
