brian hunt, red bull, dreamline, justin kosman pic, defgrip

This official Dreamline video is really well done. Instead of jam packing it with everything that went down, you get some cool insight and stories from a bunch of people along with some choice riding footage. I know the video thumbnail could possibly make you overlook it, but don”t skip this one.

In addition, Justin Kosman came through with a bunch of extra riding/lifestyle photos he had from the event and below are some assorted facts (Thanks Luke Seile & Ilana Taub).

– Course Length: 1200 feet
– 1500 man hours for the build
– 20,000 tons of dirt
– 65,000 lbs of heavy machinery on-site
– Pitch of Mountain: 12%-15%
– Elevation of top of course: 9700 feet (highest signature series, higher elevation then Utah and Ultra Natural)
– Top speed of athletes: 38mph
– Biggest jump: 14 feet (transition to lip)
– Highest air (bottom of jump to athlete height): 29 feet
– Angelfire dirt is special because of it”s clay to dirt ratio, makes a perfect texture to build and sculpt when water is added
– It took four months to find this location and we looked at over 20 different Mountains
