#ThrowbackThursday - Down Under Freeriding in 2002 - Red Bull Ride, Jindabyne - bturman - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Huge hucks, a steep hillside, and 25 riders duking it out, Aussie style. Andrew Mills ended up besting Wade Simmons and John Waddell for the crown.

    I'm pretty sure that one of these Australian Red Bull comps was the original use of the name Joyride.

    This was the gnarliest "slope" contest ever put together... that drop Grant Allen sent the next year (or was it the year after?) is still possibly one of the biggest drops done in a slope comp. (excluding Rampage). http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/64836/

    I remember seeing someones fork snap on that same drop... It's in the crash reel on one of the Disorder films I think.
