The mountainbike slopestyle event is a first in Denmark but has previously taken place in Germany where the cover picture in this article is from.

If you have never heard of the Red Bull Copenride this may be a unique opportunity to experience it.

Mountainbike slopstyle is a discipline which resembles downhill moutainbiking but it has less focus on speed and distance and more on creative descents where the riders are evaluated on their style, height of jumps and control of their bikes.
