Red Bull Dreamline

ANGEL FIRE, NM – (July 24, 2013) – Over the past several weeks, the Red Bull Dreamline team has been busy building the largest dirt race course they’ve ever built, up at Angel Fire Resort. (B-ROLL OF THIS CONSTRUCTION IS BELOW) In less than three weeks, one of the biggest courses in the history of BMX dirt will be unveiled to riders and fans alike at Red Bull Dreamline in Angel Fire, New Mexico. Red Bull Dreamline scouted the world to find the perfect location for this race. The search took them over a year - touring over 27 locations across 11 states and 3 countries, before finally selecting the 4-year old Bike Park at Angel Fire Resort to host this event. This event is expected to bring in a couple thousand spectators to the state.

"When we looked at the location last August, we knew this mountain was special,” said Adam Aloise, course designer for Red Bull Dreamline. “The trees, the geography and of course the dirt all looked extremely promising. Once we were able to dig in with deeper samples, I knew right away that this was our new home.”

“We’ve been working very hard at the Angel Fire Bike Park to create the best trails in the region for mountain biking,” explains Hogan Koesis, Angel Fire Bike Park Manager. “Getting selected to host one of the largest BMX events in the world by Red Bull shows that our mountain is the perfect destination for true riders.”

The course will take over 8 weeks to complete. With vertical descent akin to a 17-story building, 16,537 tons of dirt, and bulldozers and Skid Steers hard at work, the course will be sure to launch riders, and the level of BMX riding to new heights.

On August 10th, 32 of the best riders in BMX, hailing from seven nations, will battle it out for bragging rights and a handsome cash purse. See the full athlete list below.

There are two certain ways to catch the action. For those traveling to Angel Fire Resort, free tickets must be reserved at dreamline.eventbrite.com. Simply register, RSVP and print to guarantee your spot to watch Red Bull Dreamline up close.
