DarkFest is done and dusted for another year. That mean’s all that’s left to do is bask in the insanity of this year’s official highlights reel. And it is a real good one.

After a few years of DarkFest, and on this particular line, the jumps are absolutely dialled. That means the riders could get after it sooner, and push themselves further.

A new angle to DarkFest 2022 is the inclusion of women riders. Showing that gender is no barrier to hitting massive jumps, a solid crew of the world’s best freeriders worked their way through the infamous DarkFest line.

If you’re looking for CanCon, local freeride icons Casey Brown and Matt MacDuff were in South Africa to get almost as much air as their intercontinental flight home.
