Brett Rheeder in Kelowna Freeride Downhill


At only 19 years old, Brett Rheeder went from 31st in the World Freeride standings in 2011 to 3rd in 2012. Brett’s rise is apparent below as he went from almost Top 10 finishes to a Top 5 contender always threatening to win the top spot.

Trek Bicycle sent Brett Rheeder a Session 9.9 for the Red Bull Rampage and a week later, he filmed this. Just like Rheeder’s 2012 season, this video just gets better and better.
