Racers and fans can expect great things!” – Clay Harper, US Open Event Director.

Killington Resort has made huge investments over the past 4 years to become a mountain biking destination. A new downhill track, onsite campground and extensive lodging options and restaurants make it the perfect venue for an event like the Fox US Open of Mountain Biking.

Fox Ride Night

*Scroll through the images for full gallery*

In the cold climates of Canadian Winters, Indoor riding facilities have been becoming the only way to escape the weather and keep wheels in motion.Calgary’s newly established B-Line Indoor Bike Park will be a savoir to many as the temperatures drop. In only its first few months of opening, B-Line has been building awareness, increases its traffic and growing the bike community bigger every week.

With over 60,000 sq/f of warehouse space, the B-Line crew built a world class riding facility catering to riders of all skill levels. From beginner loops, intermediate pump-tracks, expert jump lines and a foam pit, B-Line has something for everyone to ride and improve their bike skills.

On Wednesday January 10th, Fox MTB athlete Anthony Messere and Fox BMX athlete Drew Bezanson visited the park for a Fox Ride Night and spent the evening giving locals encouragement and giving away plenty of prizes. It’s always special when a busy athlete makes time to visit a local riding hub and over 200 people came out for the Fox Ride Night to meet Drew & Anthony - all of them left with signed posters and big smiles!

“ It’s amazing to see bike parks like B-line popping up. Having a facility like that helps everyone grow into a better bike rider and overall person. It’s powerful to be surrounded by passionate people that share the same love for bike riding that you do” - Drew Bezanson

Loïc Bruni is the new MTB World Champion!

Welcome to Cairns! This Australian track is unlike any other so far this year year: very, very fast, super loose, and due to the dry weather, more dusty than ever with some tough pedaling sections which made it extremely physical too!

 

Super Bruni

 

Loïc Bruni, 1st Place!

Just over a year ago, Loïc Bruni won his first ever World Cup on this track, so he was well aware of what could be possible here. The local crowd were cheering for hometown hero Mick Hannah, who stayed on the hot seat for much of the day, and looked as if he had possibly done enough to take the title. Unfortunately for the Aussies, Loïc became 'Super Bruni' again and laid down a superlative run to take the lead by only .039 of a second. Nobody was able to go faster, and the time stood, making Loic World Champion for his second time in his short career!

 

Finish Line

 

He said: “It's unbelievable, I worked so hard all year and the luck was on my side today! My team-mate Miranda did it in the women's category just before, so I just followed her lead. It's incredible, the run was crazy, it was super loose so I didn't know what to expect because I knew Mick was super fast. So when I saw I was in front of him I was super happy but still super stressed out about the other guys so to hold on until the end was insane!”

 

 

Final Run

 

Loris Vergier, 7th

Close friend Loris Vergier was the first to congratulate Loic, and was pretty stoked with his 7th place as well: “I felt really bad on the top sections the whole week and I was just hoping for a top 10. 7th is great for me! I though Mick had the title already, but when I saw Loïc beat him, it was unreal. It's always good to see him winning!”

 

 

 

Connor Fearon

 

Connor Fearon, 24th

After missing the two last World Cups because of injury, the Aussie hoped to be back to 100% in time for World Champs. He gave his best even if he wasn't completely recovered: “It was too soon to ride 100% but I'm still happy with how I rode. I've had surgery on my hand only 6 weeks ago so I couldn't expect too much. I can't wait to be back healthy to ride my bike and start preparing for next season!”

 

Seagrave

 

Tahnee Seagrave, 11th

Two days before finals, she was the fastest during timed training. Deciding to risk it all in pursuit of the title she pushed too hard in the unpredictable dusty conditions and crashed: “I pushed a bit too much today and crashed... This race was mental! I'm glad the other girls pushed so hard as well, we all wanted the title so much. I don't mean it's nice to see everybody going down, but the fact we were all so competitive was awesome!”.

 

Finn Iles

 

 

Finn Iles, 10th Junior Mens

After winning six World Cups this year and wearing the rainbow stripes from last years World Champs win, Finn Iles was feeling the pressure on his shoulders to prove once again he can be the fastest rider of his generation. Unfortunately, a few things went wrong on race day: “I felt really good during my last practice run, but just before my race run, I realised I had forgotten my goggles and I had to borrow one of the commissaire's sunglasses. I still knew I could do a good time even under these conditions, and I knew that Matt Walker had done a very good time before my run, but I made two big mistakes and lost way too much time. I tried to go too fast and paid the price!”

It was a great year for the Fox 2017 Gravity team. The 2017 DH season is now over and 2018 will start on the 21st - 22nd of April in Lošinj, Croatia for another intense year!

*All of the Fox DH team riders wear the proven Rampage Pro Carbon helmet and Flexair gear.

FMB World Tour | Diamond Event | Red Bull District Ride
Red Bull District Ride is the fourth and final FMB Diamond event of the season and everyone's last chance at valuable World Tour Title points. After a three-year hiatus, the most unique urban slope style event returned to the streets of Nuremberg. A town rich with history is transformed into freestyle "districts" that are scored individually and then combined to give the rider a final placing.

Fox MTB team athletes competing were 2014's runner up, Brett Rheeder and fellow Canadian Anthony Messere. Rheeder would go down hard attempting a cork 720 and opted to sit out Finals while Messere put down two clean runs but was only able to score a 6th place result.

2017 District Ride Results:

1st - Nicoli Rodgatkin (USA)

2nd - Emil Johansson (SWE)

3rd - Szymon Godziek (POL)

4th - Diego Cavarzasi (ITA)

5th - Erik Fedko (GER)

6th - Anthony Messere (CAN)

7th - Mehdi Gani (FRA)

8th - Jakub Vencl (CZE)

9th - Ryan Nyquist (USA)

10th - Brett Rheeder (CAN)

UCI MTB DH WORLD CUP - WELCOME TO VAL DI SOLE

 

WHAT AN EPIC FINALE!

Some days, everything goes to plan and Saturday in Val di Sole was certainly one of those days! At the last round of the year, Tahnee Seagrave and Finn Iles both won yet another World Cup race! Loïc Bruni and Loris Vergier both ended up on the Elite race podium and took spots on the overall podium as well!

 

WIN

 

LOÏC BRUNI, 3rd - 4th IN THE OVERALL 2017 UCI DH WORLD CUP STANDINGS

After a few disappointments this year, Loïc didn't give up and his determination paid off: “I couldn't have hoped for a better weekend because I came 3rd in qualis' and finals and ended up 4th overall! What was awesome too was to be on the podium with my mates and I'll never forget this weekend! For sure, I would rather have finished first but I can't ask too much, I rode well and I'm super happy with that. I had a hard season but the ending has been great. Now, I'm relieved that I can go to Cairns for the World Champs with more confidence!”

 

WIN

 

LORIS VERGIER, 4th - 5th OVERALL IN THE WORLD CUP

Before coming to Italy, Loris was sitting in 7th place overall: “I wanted so much to finish the World Cup season on the podium so I gave everything I could and I almost crashed! I was pretty lucky to get away with it. This race was insane and I'm stoked with what I did!”

 

WIN

 

TAHNEE SEAGRAVE, 1st - 2nd OVERALL IN THE WOMENS UCI DH WORLD CUP

She was right up there with a second place in qualifying, and stepped up to take the win in finals: “I've never done well here so for me it was a big improvement! I wanted to do better than last year here which was 5th! I think I really wanted another win because even though I couldn't beat Myriam Nicole in the overall, I could take more race wins than her this season and I wanted to prove something! To win here was definitely in the back of my head but I tried not to think too much about it! Now, I'll start to focus on World Champs”.

 

WIN

 

FINN ILES, 1st- OVERALL WINNER IN JUNIOR MENS UCI DH WORLD CUP

Having won the World Cup overall with two rounds to spare, Finn proved once again he's the fastest rider in Junior Category: “It's pretty amazing, I rode very well and I'm very happy with where my time would have placed me in the Elite Category (he would have been 11th)! I'm pretty proud of my season and we also took team of the day which is very special, there is no better way to end a season!” 

 

WIN

 

 

Now the riders have a few days off before flying to Cairns (Australia) for the World Championships! They are all well and truly in the hunt for medals, hopefully some great news in a few weeks time! 

*All the FOX DH World Cup athletes wore the Fox Rampage Pro Carbon DH helmet and podium proven FLEXAIR jersey and pants.

FINN ILES | PUREST AND RAWEST URBAN MTB LINE
There are many ingredients to Finn Iles's recipe for success, but focus is undoubtably essential. Whether Iles's is thundering towards yet another World Cup win on the UCI circuit or filming in the streets of Quebec at 5 a.m. – the call time for Red Bull Purest Line – his focus allows him to mute everything but his bike and the track when he's in the saddle. Red Bull Purest Line marks just another highlight of Iles's 2017 summer. From graduating high school to securing the World Cup overall title with two races left in the season, the future is an open book for him.
