This weekend the FMB World Tour travels to Bikepark Leogang (AUT) for the second Gold event of the season: 26TRIX. Will last year's winner, Thomas Genon (BEL), make it a double by winning the eighth edition of this awesome dirt jump event? Tune in on or on June 22nd from 6:30pm CET to find out!

The Out of Bounds Festival in Saalfelden Leogang is Austria’s biggest bike festival and 26TRIX, held at Bikepark Leogang is a long-standing FMB World Tour event and popular contest among the athletes. Every year riders from all over the world travel into the Austrian Alps for this great dirt jump event. This year is no different!

Set rider line-up: First of all, Thomas Genon will return to Leogang this year to defend his 2012 victory, but who will be his biggest rival? Well, the Canadian riders will dominate the set rider line up, with 5 athletes making the journey across the pond. Of course Sweden will also be sending their big guns: Martin Soderstrom, Anton Thelander and Linus Sjoholm. The great-British-duo, Sam Pilgrim and Sam Reynolds will be there to cause some trouble and to mix things up as well. The crowd will also be particularly happy to see the ‘mad Russian cherry’ – Pavel Alekhin at another FMB World Tour event. Yannick Granieri is back on form and Szymon Godziek and Peter Henke are confirmed as well.

Peter will also be representing Germany at the first FMB World Tour Diamond event next week during X Games Munich – so 26TRIX will be a good chance for not only him, but for all X Games riders to check out what their rivals have in the trick bag. Although the rider line up for X Games Munich Mountain Bike Slopestyle is already confirmed, riders that perform well at 26TRIX on June 22nd, stand a much greater chance of becoming one of the alternates for X Games Munich the following week.

As far as the FMB World Tour overall ranking goes, things are pretty tight at the moment and whoever can secure solid points from this second FMB World Tour Gold event will definitely place themselves in a stronger position for the overall title and the golden CamelBak Eddy Bottle.
