The 2018 Downmall Tour enters its 9th year at shopping malls across Eastern Europe. This year the Downmall Tour takes place at 4 different locations, the first stop at Blautal Center in Ulm, Germany happened last weekend.
Next weekend, the series moves on to Essen in Germany, where last year's round was cancelled because of safety concerns. After that, the riders travel to Budapest in Hungary and Praha in the Czech Republic.
Unfortunately, for the first round in Ulm, many of the best riders of last year's series, like Johannes Fischbach and Tomas Slavik, weren't able to attend because they were racing in Valparaíso in Chile at the urban downhill race.
Between the races, there was a Freestyle Contest.
The 30-second long track uses a step down to take riders from the first floor to the ground floor, which the freestylers used for their own show.
Next weekend the racing heads to Praha and Fischbach and Slavik will be back in search for the win.
