Welcome to the Team Carson Storch

January 06, 2016

We are proud to sign Carson Storch to our freeride program. The two-year deal will see Carson compete at a full schedule of slopestyle and freeride events across the globe. He will also be involved in several high profile film projects.

Carson is unique because he rides at such a high level in both slopestyle and big mountain—and he tears it up on trail bikes too. He’ll be a great ambassador for our brand. 

"Rocky Mountain has always represented freeride, and is a company that I am proud to ride for," said Carson. "The bikes are awesome, the team is awesome, and they have been very welcoming. I'm happy to start a new chapter in my career with them."

Carson had the opportunity to work with our engineering team to build a custom slopestyle bike in our North Vancouver prototype lab. He will ride a carbon Maiden for the Red Bull Rampage and other big mountain events, as well as a carbon Altitude for trail riding.

We have a deep history in freeride, sponsoring the first freeride team back in 1995. Carson joins Rocky Mountain alumni Wade Simmons, Thomas Vanderham, Geoff Gulevich, and Brett Tippie.

Cheers bud, welcome to the team!

Joyriding With Gully

August 19, 2013

WHISTLER, BC — This year marked the 10th year of Crankworx, and as the pinnacle of the week the Red Bull Joyride slopestyle contest exceeded all expectations. Rocky Mountain rider Geoff Gulevich commented that the course, which snaked its way across the mountain and through thousands of spectators, was "by far the best Joyride course ever." Although the weather threatened to spoil the fun, the ominous clouds cleared throughout the afternoon and the riders put on a show for the ages.

 

Congratulations to Geoff and everyone who shredded the Red Bull Joyride course this weekend. Also, our thoughts go out to the riders who were injured in the event — get well soon!
