Red Bull Final Descent
Join us for the 2012 Red Bull Final Descent, an endurance downhill mountain bike event, coming to Jackson Hole on August 11.
WHO: Solo, Duo and Team riders, competing in Pro & Expert divisions, will push the limits in this 12-hour MTB downhill challenge. Riders can enter one event or ride all three stops in the series.
WHAT: The 3nd annual Red Bull Final Descent series, a mountain biking challenge that pushes riders to the brink and back over some of the most technically challenging terrain in North America, returns this year with more riders, more competition, and more mountain. The format of the event is simple-riders can choose from three technical courses of varying difficulty. After 12 uninterrupted hours of extreme mountain riding, the competitor in each division with the most laps wins.
Each stop in the series offers a $5,000 cash purse plus gear from industry partners Troy Lee Designs and Oakley. The overall series winners-the male and female rider who posts the most laps combined for all events-takes home an additional $500 and ultimate end-of-season bragging rights. Riders can register online through race weekend at www.active.com (search Red Bull Final Descent). WHEN/WHERE: Jackson Hole: Saturday, August 21, 2012
