Red Bull Final Descent at Trestle Bike Park

Winter Park, CO - Trestle Bike Park is preparing for those brave enough to embark on the 12-hour downhill mountain biking endurance competition known as the Red Bull Final Descent this Saturday, September 8 in Trestle Bike Park at Winter Park Resort. Last Year, Winter Park Resort and Red Bull welcomed 100 athletes that competed for the 12 hours of racing; the winning number of total laps in Trestle Bike Park was a grueling 36.

Geared to sport, expert and pro-class mountain bikers, the rider, duo or team to complete the most laps down the mountain in 12 hours wins their class and a grip load of prizes. This is an amazing weekend for spectators and riders alike. The Red Bull Final Descent features a $5,000 cash purse to top finishers at each event in all categories, plus prizes from our industry sponsors. A $500 cash purse goes to the series top pro male and female rider who completes the most laps. All other class series top finishers will receive a $120 cash prize.

The Division Classifications are as follows: -Solo: Pro Women, Pro Men, Expert Women, Expert Men -Duo: Expert and Pro (teams consist of 2 people any mix – guy/guy, girl/girl, guy/girl) -Team: Open class consisting of 3-4 person teams of any mix -Sport and/or beginner class riders may also register in the ‘Expert’ class, with the understanding that the Red Bull Final Descent is not for the timid! There will be many people on course at the same time, and all riders must use caution and discretion when they encounter another rider.

Registration is available in advance, online at or onsite during rider cheek-in the day before the event (add $15 to the fees for onsite registration). Participation fee includes event registration, lift ticket, event T-shirt and all the Red Bull you can drink!
