The golden Better Bottle will travel to different events throughout the season to inspire athletes and spark their ambition. The golden bottle will have its first public appearance at the Vienna Air King in Austria an April 2ndand 3rd. After that, you will be able to admire it in its glass cage at selected events throughout the FMB World Tour 2011. 


At the end of the season, the coveted trophy will surely be able to tell quite a story after attending some of the best events in freeride mountain biking. It remains to be seen who will be able to drink their water from a golden bottle and take home their new prized possession after the World Tour final event at the Red Bull District Ride on September 9th and 10th in Nuremberg, Germany. We will keep you posted on the bottle's travels and adventures.
