Video: Red Bull District Ride Course Build Right on Track

Sep 4, 2014

The Red Bull District Ride course builders have worked tirelessly at full throttle to finish this unique track on time. In just a few days they have changed Nuremberg’s old city into an amazing urban freeride course. “We’ve been working on the course for three weeks and have now one week to build it up in the city”, says Niko Bössl.

Track designer Aaron Chase guides us through the creative obstacles and gives some hints to what spectators can expect to witness on Saturday afternoon: “It’s the most spectacular mountain bike slopestyle course of the year!”

On 6 September the course builders efforts will be appreciated by the world’s best mountain bike slopestylers. They will hit all five districts and piece together the best run possible. For one lucky rider, it will be enough to take the win at this FMB Diamond Series contest.

 @benreid. I rode this morning before work and the bike shop was slow. Chase is a personal friend that I have known for a while and feel I can give him a hard time. Jani-f*cka gave me a little grief. I cannot do the same? You no ride today and that's why you are fiest

 I do apologize on misspelling your name. Hit submit then realized I misspelled and on mobile so no editing.

 Thank you @Benread and karma sure is a bitch when it comes to misspeling huh @whatthehell? No need to censor my name though, it's not pronounced anywhere near the "f*ck". Since it was my intention to just joke around a bit with fellow bikers, can we just forget this now? Big Grin

 Let's be real, if you were going to get anyone to build something like this you'd choose the Germans.
Not 100% convinced about the open loop yet but who knows... it could be entertaining.

 It's seems to be stop and start. No flow, not continuous. I'm hoping I'm seeing this wrong?
  • 1 0
 each rider has a full run top to bottom. no stop and go for every single district. ok, it takes about 30 seconds to get to the 4th floor of the city hall with the elevator but thats it.

 Someone refresh my memory... this is a mountain bike course?
  • 9 0
 Nope, Slopestyle Comps left the Mountain long ago... Dirt == Mountain.

Inflammatory comment #1, there is more mountain in an XC Course than Slopestyle these days.

Not that it's a bad thing, for them to be commercially viable you need spectators in and around the features, not watching select parts of the course on a small screen ala DH or Enduro.

They ride mountain bikes though! (kind of)

 I once saw a pov video of a run at district ride. There was like one drop followed by one feature and then the rider had to go at least 100 meters till the next feature. To get to the last feature the riders had to walk up the stairs of a hotel building just to get to the top. So technically the judges would have to give every single rider zero points on their flow.

 seems lame they skimped out on thing like the quarter pipe and that rad street section of the last time!

 So you get into an elevator mid run??? Wtf just krazy

 They also have to stop at the mall for a yogenfruz and a faux piercing ....

 Take a dump in the elevator to throw off the other competitors and get more air. Also so you don't shit your pants on that last jump.
