Riders confirmed for Vienna Air King dirt jump comp
The Vienna Air King mountain bike dirt jump competition takes place on April 10-11 and marks the first event on the recently created Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour.
Held in Austria’s capital, 50 riders from 15 countries including Grant Fielder and Sam Pilgrim (UK), Darren Berrecloth (Can), Jamie Goldman (USA) and Amir Kabbani (Ger) will hit a redesigned dirt line at the ARGUS Bike Festival, with the finals taking place on Sunday April 11th.
Riders will start from a massive tower with a small roll in, ending in a wooden kicker to drop from six metres into a dirt landing – which will make for a high speed entry into three large doubles, all of which have wooden take off ramps and dirt landings.
The Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour will make its UK debut at BikeRadar Live on 10-11 July at Brands Hatch, Kent.
