Emil secured the Triple Crown of Slopestyle in the most dramatic fashion possible. Watch behind the scenes.
Emil Johansson, at 23 years old, has already cemented himself as arguably the greatest slopestyle rider of all time.
His 2022 season only added to his legend, and not just because he became the only rider ever to win the Triple Crown of Slopestyle twice. Johansson had to battle through a broken hand, riding through pain as he won Red Bull Joy Ride, and patiently go through the concussion protocol following a nasty crash in Cairns.
And then the coup de grâce: A history-making win in Rotorua that we won’t forget any time soon. You can relive all the ups and downs in Johansson’s full-length documentary about his 2022 season. Watch “Defending the Crown” right here:
Johansson will be exacting revenge on Cairns in just a few weeks when the Crankworx World Tour returns from May 17-21. In the meantime, his documentary should tide you over. He already has a win this year after rocking Rotorua in March.
Johansson never stops doing incredible things. To keep up with everything Emil, be sure to follow him on Instagram.
