Whistler British Columbia
Mother Nature is a BMX fan! Despite weather forecasts predicting cold and rainy days for the weekend, a packed Whistler Village witnessed the skies clear and Red Bull Elevation go off to once again live up to the hype as the best event in BMX dirt jumping.
From the first run, the 32 invited riders were throwing it all on the line and in the qualifying rounds, it was Corey Bohan who led the pack dropping a double tailwhip, superman seat grab and backflip in his first drop-in! From there it was a battle between Bohan and 2005 winner Ryan Nyquist as they dropped every killer combo on the course and inched point by point up the board to land first and second place settings leading into the finals.
