What do you do once you’ve reached the top of your sport? For Drew Bezanson, the answer is learn a new one… and this time he’s got his sights set on slopestyle mountain biking. ‘The Learning Curve’ follows Bezanson’s first foray into the wide world of slopestyle mountain biking, as he takes on the 2016 season with the hope of earning a spot at Red Bull Joyrideon August 21.
The six-part series released every Tuesday, captures the high-fives, lows and humbling experiences of entering a new sport with the goal of competing at its absolute highest level.
Slopestyle mountain biking has taken its cues from all types of bike disciplines, from classic downhill, to dirt jumping and of course, BMX. While many riders in the field reflect those various backgrounds, this year marks the first time that one of the most recognised BMX riders in the world takes on the FMB World Tour in an attempt to reach Red Bull Joyride.
