Thun is just an amazing place for the FMB World Tour contest.
It's a pity that Rocket Air is an indoor contest, because the city overview is just insane
Thun is the perfect place not only for the dirt contest but also to chill and spend some time in the mountains.

"Around the world it will be possible to watch live as well the Swatch Trick Showdown and the qualification on Friday evening such as the finals on Saturday. The live stream boosts the weight of the event in the FMB Worldtour. A huge LED Screen in the ice arena of Thun will provide the spectators the live ranking and breathtaking replays right after the runs"
"According to the evaluation riders will be catapulted to a height of more than 10 meters. In order to cope with the 9-meter distance between drop and landing"
"This year the Flying Metal Crew expects a total of more than 10'000 spectators within the two days"
