X Games Munich Mountain Bike Slopestyle is the first Diamond event of the season, taking place on June 30th and the only one to take place in Europe in 2013. It is the first time that mountain bike slopestyle will be a part of the X Games competitions and so it should be no surprise that every professional rider dreams of a starting spot at this historic event.

There are 16 spots open to the worlds best mountain bike athletes. 12 of these spots are awarded to the top 12 riders in the FMB World Tour 52 Week Seeding List. The last four places are given as wildcards for athletes that have shown outstanding skill and have earned their chance to join the competition.
