This course is a beast! The legendary event Red Bull District Ride will see 20 world-class slopestyle athletes battle it out in the old town of Nuremberg this weekend on September 1-2.

The final FMB Diamond Event of the season, will also decide, who will be crowned as the FMB Wolrd Champion. Will Emil Johansson cruise to victory? Will Nicholi Rogatkin rise like a phoenix from the ashes and defend his title? You can watch all the action LIVE on Red Bull TV or on fmbworldtour.com on Saturday from 3pm CEST / 9am EDT / 6am PDT!
Castle Drop District
Riders will need courage and precision right out of the gate with a 5m-high drop from the wall of the medieval Kaiserburg castle. After the drop, it’s all about nailing the first berm to get enough speed for the next trick over the big hip-jump.
The second district starts with a large stair jump leading into the cobble-stones of the Untere Schmiedgasse and a 6m-long box jump next to the statue of German painter Albrecht Dürer that will demand a high level of creativity from the world’s best slopestyle riders.
Jeep the Rhythm District
Next up riders will make their way to the Sebalder Platz where they will have to find the right rhythm in front of the Sebaldus church. Three trickable features in a row will need to be conquered to convince the Jury.
The second-to-last district demands technicality and stamina from the riders as they make their way along the historic city hall on their way to the Hauptmarkt. The athletes need to show complex trick combinations across a distance of over 100m before heading into the elevator that takes them to the fourth floor of the city hall.
Big Air District
After a short ride up with the elevator, the riders will approach a window in the city hall, from where they can see the tens-of-thousands of fans awaiting them on the Hauptmarkt. Cheered on by the massive crowd the athletes then drop into a ramp from a height of over 15m and catapult themselves into the sky with the help of the 4.5m high kicker to end their run with their biggest tricks.
