Taking the Leap: Red Bull Formation
Posted on 16 June 2021
Former World Cup downhill racer and freeride mountain biker Katie Holden put into motion a concept that took flight for its second year with an even bigger impact and appetite for stoke: Red Bull Formation.
"Red Bull Formation is a first-of-its-kind progression session for women's freeride mountain biking. Set against a landscape of unforgiving terrain, the top eight female freeriders, alongside a selection of industry mentors, diggers and other professional athletes, will work together to create top-to-bottom lines that illustrate their skill, style, and power as well as push the women's field further than ever before.
The first event was held in 2019 and was a transformative moment for women's freeriding, marking a tangible shift in the scene," Red Bull said in a statement about the event.
After a year-long hiatus, Red Bull Formation returned to one of the most iconic landscapes for the freeride mountain biking movement, Virgin, Utah earlier this month. Here's a round-up of snaps from the week:
