The FMB World Tour is looking towards a bright and action packed 2017, the first events of the new season have been confirmed. The preliminary calendar already consists of 18 FMB Events in 10 different countries around the globe and there will be many more to come.
With White Style in Leogang, Austria, kicking-off the FMB World Tour on January 27, all slopestyle fans and athletes can look forward to a long list of locations hosting FMB Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond Events this year. Reason enough for riders of all skill levels to get hold of their 2017 AM or PRO FMB License and make this season the best season yet!
Eighteen events have already been confirmed and many more are to follow in the next weeks.
The number of Gold Events has a good chance of increasing once again. The modification of adding every contestant’s best Gold Event result to the end result of the Diamond Series proved its worth last season and will be maintained.
Although the calendar is still very much in a state of flux, the FMB Diamond Events are all set in stone. After the season really gets under way with “Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle in Memory of McGazza“ on April 2, fans can look forward to a “double header” in June with Crankworx Les Gets on June 18 followed by Crankworx Innsbruck a week later on June 25. With the season in full swing, Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler will get everyone stoked on August 20, before the FMB World Champ will be determined at Red Bull District Ride on September 2.
