Yeah, the X-Games aren’t doing dirt this year, but that doesn’t mean that everyone has thrown in the Cory Nastazio towel just yet. On the contrary, Red Bull are stepping up and doing TWO crazy dirt events this year, Empire of Dirt in the U.K. and Elevation in Whistler, B.C., Canada. We’ve already crammed your throats with EOD info over the past two weeks, but here’s the skinny on Elevation. It’s June 29 through July 1, 2007 in Whistler, B.C., and the confirmed rider list is nuts. Check it below, and then check their MySpace page here:


Corey Bohan, Ryan Nyquist, Luke Parslow, Anthony Napolitan, Dane Searls, TJ Ellis, James Foster, Mike Clark, Fernando Sabat, Romuald “Bibi” Noirot, Matt Beyers, Alejandro Caro Ospina, Darren Berrecloth, Adam Baker, Paul Kintner, Kim Grossler, Cory Nastazio, Stephen Murray, Chris Doyle, Brian Foster, Alister Whitton, Dave Dilleward, Darin Read, Gary Young, Rob Darden, Heath Pinter, Cam White, Steve McCann, Ryan “Biz” Jordan
