For the 3rd consecutive year, The Rise successfully completed a 16-day journey known as the Partymaster Tour. If you’re not familiar with the Partymaster Tour, it consists of the whole The Rise Freestyle MTB Team touring around Quebec and Ontario on board a custom bus with their bikes and camping gear.
For 2019, invited guests Tom Kilcoyne (GBR), Max Otzelberger (DEU) and Pavel Alekhin (RUS) joined our team riders, bringing an awesome amount of diversity within the riding styles. Even if some of the guys had never met before, everyone quickly got along and this same vibe carried the riding sessions to an all-time high. The level of riding was absolutely mind-blowing and we can’t wait to show you everything that went down. Ranging from indoor parks to lake jumps and rugged street spots, the locations visited this year did not disappoint. The crew spent most of the tour in the province of Quebec which is often overlooked for Freestyle MTB, yet offers some truly unique places.
And to make it even better, the Partymaster Tour hosted no less than 8 rising music bands at these same locations while the riding occured. In Trois-Rivières for example, a 10-feet high stage was set up right beside the dirt jumps! You could feel it in the air when rock band Blue Cheese started their sound check that this was going to be something else. A few riders were jumping to warm up already, but the rain came in heavy which put an end to the jam and forced the crew to move the band over to the main stage. Just like in 2018, a complete web-series will be released covering the 2019 Partymaster Tour in it’s entirety.
The Rise is proud to count on support of Le Trou du Diable and Industry Nine for making the Partymaster Tour a reality. Stay tuned for the complete web series!
