Fabio Wibmer Takes Over a Slopestyle Ski Course

Feb 15, 2019
by rasoulution Communication Agency  

It seems like Austrian mountain bike and trials rider Fabio Wibmer just can't resist sending it on snow. Following the release of his biggest project to date, Fabiolous Escape 2, Fabio puts tires back on snow to find out if the Urban Slopestyle course built for skiers competing at Red Bull Playstreets in Bad Gastein, Austria, works for mountain bikes as well. Teaming up with drone racing world champion Luke Bannister, this a must-see!

Watch the world's best Slopestyle skiers compete amongst the rooftops of Bad Gastein at Red Bull Playstreets live on Red Bull TV, Facebook and YouTube on Saturday, Feburay 15, 8:00pm CET.

 @djfloorfiller74: It's not the same pilot, but most pro racing drone pilots put out absolutely insane level skill videos. This is cool but not even close to the most impressive. My personal favorite is Paul Nurkkala. www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQDcDZ6rmGE

 Cool video and great drone operating! The problem is his previous videos have been so insane. The guy is hurt by his own high water marks. Still, neat to see him ride the course. I always imagine bikes going down and around things they shouldn't, so it's nice not to wonder what it would really look like.

 Bit of a let down for a Wibmer vid!

 It seems no one here has ever seen a Playstreets slope comp... it was never a super gnarly course. That was a pretty entertaining course preview. I'm surprised he rode away after landing flat on the first jump.

 @scott-townes: all skiing and riding takes place in the superpipe, big jump line, or backcountry. i think.

 I would give my left kidney to see him crankslide one of those rails

 I hoped for that, too. Like Dylan Stark did with his dh bike (except it was a stairset)!

 Yup, was half expecting it

 Wibmer is bizarro Candide. Candide spends a lot of time skiing on dirt. Wibmer spends a lot of time biking on snow.

 well thats the coolest shit i've seen all day. Dear UCI, make the SNOW DH like that... with 4 riders at once... please.

 I can remember that RB planned something like that a few years ago on dirt but it was canceled shortly before. The track was already built.

 You mean, a bit like 4X? It's been done before indeed with events like Tignes Airwaves. You know, where Gee Atherton overshot the landing (not in such a race) back when he was riding a bike from Giant bike. Not sure whether anyone rode these races on full DH bikes though.

 @dh-corn: the marks of the track are still visibile in livigno.

 @K1maxX: Now I know: Red Bull Wide Open! Bring it back RB!!! Or the "Top To Bottom Eliminator"

 Great rider but after watching BMX, a bit boring.

 Boring indeed, in fact I cant see at all this snow dh hype thing...

 @gapos999: Im geussing you’ve never ridden on snow then, its like riding down a super wet clay trail soo loose!

 @endurogan: doesn't mean it's fun to watch. Much more exciting to watch a fast car drift on dry pavement than to watch me drift my Honda Fit at 20mph in a snowy parking lot.

 We are used to see him more creative, but creative minds need a rest once in a while, nice edit anyway
