Casey Brown is heading up a new freeride event in British Columbia, called Dark Horse modeled after the FEST Series. The event will take place at the Revelstoke venue, in BC. 2021 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year in women’s freeride mountain biking, as the events are stacking up. Casey Brown is taking the Dark Horse event to a new level, feature a dozen of the industry’s best woman freeriders.
The Dark Horse event will feature a line of six jumps, airbag, mulch pit, and progression line. The idea behind the six jumps is to allow the riders to boost huge and let the riders go big. I would expect a jump train to happen at some point. We’ll keep an eye out.
My vision is to create a women’s freeride event that is welcoming, inclusive and focused on progression. I’ve had a dream to build a proper jump line for a while. My hope is that this event will become an annual celebration for women on bikes and shine a light on women’s freeriding.– Casey Brown
Features at Dark Horse
Casey Brown’s vision is to allow this group of women’s freeride mountain bikers to push each other, as more of a collaboration than a competition. The event dates are August 16-20, 2021.
Once the event has been completed, the Pro Line will become park of the Revelstoke trail network and open for all to ride. The Dark Horse Invitational is supported by the Province of British Columbia’s Resort Municipality Initiatives Funding Program.
