Casey Brown Dark Horse Invitational

August 24 2022

Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Jigsaw Event Services, and Casey Brown have joined forces to bring you the return of Dark Horse Invitational— a women’s specific freeride event, September 21-24, 2022. Set amidst the stunning Selkirk and Monashee Mountains, it will feature some of the world’s best female athletes. 

“My vision is to create a women’s freeride event that is welcoming, inclusive and focused on progression,” said Casey Brown. “I've had a dream to build a proper jump line for a while. I’m happy that this event has become an annual celebration for women on bikes and has put a spotlight on women’s freeriding.”

The invitational is designed to be inclusive, foster progression and push limits. Casey Brown is set to host up to 20 invitation-only riders at this year’s event. Participants will arrive mid-week to ride the course, get comfortable with the lines, and push their riding to the next level. Over the course of the week, athletes will be judged amongst their fellow riders to determine who deserves the Dark Horse title.

“I have never been to an event where I felt as included as Dark Horse.” said last year’s winner, Tayte Proulx-Royds. “I was stoked to see my progression over the three days.” Tayte will be on the roster of talented athletes at this year's event.
