Saturday was the 10th anniversary of Red Bull Joyride – and the first time the event was held after two years away – and both the athletes and crowd were ready for something special. Emil Johansson sailed to a historic win with technical precision and mind-bending combination tricks. But it was Tomas Lemoine who stole the show.
The French rider brought freeride back to slopestyle in the biggest way possible, turning the huge finish-line on-off platform into a truly wild gap jump. The massive Whistler crowd went wild. Lemoine’s high-consequence move didn’t earn as many points as expected so he went back up and did it again on his second run, adding more tricks earlier in his run to earn a place on the podium.
Watch Lemoine’s bonkers gap jump – and runs from Johansson and Timothé Bringer – below.
