Just in time for the Red Bull District Ride the FMBA was raffling off a VIP package with very special features among all existing and new FMBA members.
Birgitte from Norway was the one to win it - Here´s what she experienced:

"When the FMBA called me that Tuesday afternoon to tell me I won the VIP package for the Red Bull District Ride I was really suprised. When I thought about who to take along, the first person I thought of was my sister Eline and I couldn’t have asked for better company. 

So we already left on Thursday: Out of freezing Norway into spending an adventourus weekend in Nuremberg, Germany to see the best riders in the world compete on this crazy course - We couldn’t wait and couldn't believe that we were now on our way to the final event of the FMB World Tour.
When we got to Nuremberg, the FMBA welcomed us at the train station and brought us over to our Hotel leaving us with a welcome package, a little time to rest and loads to look forward to.
After that we went straight to the Best Trick competion. The jumps were huge and it was so much fun to watch all the riders. Andreu’s Superman was insane and we knew that this was just the beginning of a great weekend.
After the contest we went to a VIP BBQ with plenty of really good food and even a few of the riders showed up for a chat and to give us a little inside information of what to expect.

Unfortunately, Eline woke up with a fever on Saturday so we missed the course walk with Timo Pritzel and the visit to the riders lounge. That sucked, but after some sleep and a few pills from the pharmacy she felt better and was ready to watch the finals.
The whole city was so packed with spectators that it was difficult to walk around, but we had a great view from the Friends of Red Bull Area right by the Best Trick jump. The rest of the course was shown on a big screen right next to it. The riding was really impressive! The course was so different from any other competition I’ve ever seen and the atmosphere was breath taking.
What a brilliant finish to the FMB World Tour!  

We left Nuremberg on Sunday after a great after show party and I can truly say we had an excellent time.
Thank you FMBA for this fantastic trip to the FMB World Tour finals!"
