With 2018 already underway this year's FMB World Tour calendar is slowly coming together. A preliminary calendar will be released in February. After the season kicks off with FMB Silver Event White Style in Leogang on January 26, we are proud to announce that the London event Air to the Throne will not only be returning to the FMB World Tour this year, but will be upping its game once again.
This year’s competition taking place at the London Bike show will be bigger and better, with a huge course which promises to push the riders to the limit. The development of the event in the past two years has resulted in this year's contest to be awarded with the gold status. This will be the first FMB Gold Event in the UK on the history of the World Tour. A 40 rider strong, international field also consisting of the World’s best riders, including British Number One Matt Jones, and two-time Air to the Throne Winner and 2016 FMB World Champion Nicholi Rogatkin, will be competing at the highest level possible, in order to come away with the first vital Gold Event points of the season. The final line up will be announced in the run up to the event.
Riders can already get hold of their 2018 licenses here! Once registered, athletes will be listed on the respective FMB Rankings with the next ranking update.
Tarek Rasouli, FMBA’s Vice President said, ‘We’re thrilled to be partnering with the London Bike Show to take some of the world’s best FMB riders to the United Kingdom for the first FMB Gold Event that has ever been in the UK. Especially during the winter it is really great for the athletes to get the chance to show their sickest tricks on an indoor course!’
For the first time, the competition will be streamed live on UNILAD, giving visibility to fans across the globe.
