Red Bull Red Bull Megaloop Challenge 2018 Ruben Lenten

The Red Bull Megaloop Challenge 2018 line-up

On April 3, 2018   |   By kiteworldmag.com

The riders list is confirmed

 

There’s been a flurry of wildcard entry videos dropping over the last few months as riders scrambled for a place at this year’s Red Bull Megaloop Challenge but now, the final 16 man line-up has been announced.

10 international riders had already been carefully selected for the event. They earned their places based on a combination of their performances at previous Megaloop Challenges and how hard they can send a megaloop!

Alongside the 10 prequalified competitors, there were six wildcard places up for grabs to be awarded to the riders who submitted the most insane edits. Four of them have now been handed out with two more still to be issued closer to the time of the event.

 

Here’s who’s made the cut so far!
