WHAT IS IT?

KONA FREERIDE CUP

Set of freeride events in Finland sponsored by Kona Bikes. Its all about having fun all day with jam based contest!

The scoring will be similar to snowboarding slopestyle contests. Style matters on big jumps and fast berm sections. Who will send best whip, run or trick?

Events are weekend-based (training on friday, contest on saturday). Saturday is main event day.

And of course, there will be afterparties too with legit action!

WHO WE ARE?

KaruMTB is a group of guys who are really into freeride mountain biking in Finland. We started to do things together in 2009.

In the past years we have been focusing on video productions. Our latest biking film called SHORT ENDS is shot on film and it turned out nice. After this film, we want to do something else.

Our goal is to develop freeride on high level in this country. For that purpose, we will organize Freeride Cup, a set of events in Finland.

We would like to think that this is a start for a regular events and becomes a tradition in the Finnish mountain biking scene.

We believe we know how to create a good biking spirit (hyvä meininki).
