October 21/11 9:27 am - 2012 Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour Announced


Posted by Editoress on 10/21/11
 

The 2011 Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour is only barely over and the ground is still shaking from the massive tricks we saw at the Red Bull District Ride in Nuremberg. However, there is no time to rest and the organisation behind the World Tour is in the middle of preparing for next year. Already, more than half of the 2012 events are practically set, so take a look!

With the Red Bull Rampage and the Red Bull District Ride, the past two FMB World Tours had two truly spectacular final events. Of course, we would like to continue that run and from the way it looks right now, we just might. Our goal is to have another grand finale but before anything can be confirmed, there are still several details that need to be worked out. Beside that, all other Gold and Diamond events of 2011 have already confirmed their dates for 2012 and it remains to be seen what shape the World Tour will take coming season.
 
Below you’ll find the preliminary schedule for 2012 but keep in mind that we are still talking to several other events so the number of stops is bound to increase. Among other venues, a number of FMB World Tour athletes are taking up the challenge to follow in Darren Berrecloth’s footsteps and are planning to hold their own events. Grant Fielder, for example, is putting together a new event in the UK, which would put Great Britain back on the FMB World Tour map after they were missing from it this year. If those new events manage to meet the criteria of an FMB World Tour event, this will definitely make for an interesting addition to the 2012 FMB World Tour.
