By now, all the wild cards are gone and within the next few days it will become official which riders have qualified for the Red Bull District Ride. But there is another surprise in store: You can become an official forerunner for the most legendary urban freeride event in the world! Mail a link to a short video clip until August 20th with your best tricks to firstname.lastname@example.org and if your clip is one of the best, it will get posted on the official Red Bull District Ride facebook event page
for the final voting.
Obviously, not everyone can master a course that has been designed for the best of the best and that will also pose quite a challenge to the absolute freeride superstars. Therefore, you are challenged to prove your skills in a short video clip. A jury then selects the best ones to post them on the official Red Bull District Ride facebook event page. Whichever rider collects the most likes with his video until August 25th at 11:59pm CET will be declared official forerunner for the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour finals! Of course, jury and facebookers will judge your skill first and foremost, but creativity will definitely play a large part in the selection of the winner; so don’t hold back on ideas!
In Nuremberg, the winner will be treated like one of the superstars. The occasion will be captured on film for posterity by a helmet cam and film team, so that the forerunner will receive the fame he deserves. Naturally, the rider is invited to the entire trip. Red Bull is looking forward to meeting a new talent in Nuremberg!
One of the riders who have already qualified for the Red Bull District Ride is Amir Kabbani (GER). He will not only have a lot to say about the forerunner clips, but will share his wisdom with us in his blog on www.redbulldistrictride.com
. It is definitely worth a read and check in on the pro as he prepares for the long awaited contest and shares some inside info.
