No rest for the wicked, as riders head to Bearclaw Invitational for round three of the FMB Diamond Series. Just one week after the incredible Red Bull Joyride, athletes are island hopping over for one of their favourite events of the season. With the FMB Diamond Series ranking heating up and the FMB Factory Team ranking in play – it will not be all fun and games at the Bearclaw Invitational. Check out the event teaser!
This is when the wheels really start rolling! After two FMB Diamond Series events, the current standings could not be more competitive. The dark horse, Anthony Messere is holding on tight to the top spot on the FMB Diamond Series standings but after Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler, the big boys, Brandon Semenuk and Brett Rheeder are breathing down his neck. Will the tables turn at the Bearclaw Invitational? Let’s also not forget Thomas Genon who is having an amazing season but a stroke of bad luck last weekend saw him crash in both runs. No doubt the Belgian is eager to make up for lost points!
While the riders are battling for their individual FMB World Tour victory – they are also racking up points for the FMB Factory Team standings. With Thomas Genon’s incredible early season results, Canyon Factory Freeride Team were leading until the Colorado Freeride Festival, when Nicholi Rogatkin and Martin Soderstrom brought home a double podium for Specialized. Then last weekend, Trek C3 Project team athletes, Brandon Semenuk and Brett Rheeder nailed a solid 1st and 2nd to steal the lead ahead of the Bearclaw Invitational by 800 points. So how will it pan out after round 3 of the FMB Diamond Series? Well – check back after the competition and find out. You can follow the FMB Factory Team ranking here.
