 Swatch Prime Line Rider Line Up

 

Qualifying will determine who has the best skills to ride for victory at Swatch Prime Line Munich. 24 athletes will start, but only 16 will make the cut for the semi-finals. An innovative contest format will add to the excitement: at Swatch Prime Line Munich, the athletes will compete in heats of four against each other. Four heats in total, two runs in each heat. The best run counts and only the top rider of each heat will proceed to the finals. In the last round, the remaining four athletes will battle it out with two more runs each. The judges will leave only one rider at the top of the pile to take the win. Throughout the semi-finals and finals, the rider who throws down the best move will win the Best Trick Contest.

The athlete that takes the glory at Swatch Prime Line Munich will also win the final wildcard for Red Bull District Ride later this year. Every athlete wants a spot at the FMB Diamond Series contest and they will show everything they have at Swatch Prime Line Munich to be there. The best placed athlete, who is not yet qualified through the FMB World Ranking, will secure himself a spot in Nuremberg on September 6th.
