Join us at Bike Big White for the first Big White Invitational Slopestyle, hosted by Tom van Steenbergen! 

The 25 top-ranked FMB riders from North America and Europe, along with 4 wildcard entries, will be invited to compete on Big White's new slopestyle course. As the last event before selection, and with a wildcard spot up for grabs for Joyride at Crankworx Whistler, expect the riders to throw down their best tricks.

This is the only FMB World Tour Gold event in North America, so Canadians and local BC riders have a chance to compete on home ground for the first time. Expect to see some incredible up-and-coming local talent join the scene. 4 wildcards for the main Gold Pro event will be chosen from the Bronze Open event to compete on the pro course with some of the best in the world.

This weekend is one not to be missed - beer gardens, music, expo, demos and much more!
Spectators can access the main action and viewing areas for the course from Happy Valley.
