However, for all the aspiring young riders, there is a separate competition called 'Red Bull Phenom', taking place between the official slopestyle qualifications and finals on Sunday June 30th. Red Bull Phenom finalists will ride the X Games Munich slopestyle course in the Olympic Park Munich for the chance to win their very own Red Bull Media House produced highlight clip and the title of Red Bull Phenom 2013.
So, how can you apply to compete at Red Bull Phenom? It's quite simple! There are six starting places for young talents aged 15-19 who haven't attended a Diamond event. Three riders will be chosen via video application. The other three will be invited, based on the FMB World Tour 52 Week Seeding list. The 52 Week Seeding List consists of the top 3 results of all licensed athletes that participated in FMB World Tour events in the last 52 weeks. The top ranked FMB World Tour athletes aged 15-19, who have not yet attended a Diamond event will be invited to Red Bull Phenom.
