What is Red Bull Criss Cross?

Red Bull Criss Cross is a mountain bike festival designed by riders, for riders. An event that will captivate the crowds, build the stoke and deliver an epic weekend of riding. Red Bull Criss Cross is one of the first national events since the borders have opened in most states – it’s a welcome addition to the calendar for riders and racers across the nation.

This two day event is built around the main event ‘Red Bull Criss Cross’ a dual slalom race that sees riders criss cross over and under each other as they make their way down the course. Riders can throw tricks on the jumps as they head down the trail in a speed and style format, points are awarded to each trick and will be deducted from the overall time. This means not only the fastest riders will win the day but those that have the style to back the speed.
