The first FMB World Tour 2013 ranking points were awarded at TEVA Slopestyle in February. Since then Sam Pilgrim has almost consistently led the overall ranking, only shortly being demoted into 2nd by Czech rider Tomas Zejda. Today, Sam remains at the top of the leader board, but he will have to ride like never before to fight off his competitors at FISE Montpellier. Big names like Tyler McCaul, Anthony Messere and Brett Rheeder will be travelling across the Atlantic to compete for the first big points in Europe. FISE Montpellier and the upcoming Red Bull Berg Line are the last chance to win valuable FMB World Tour 52 week seeding list points for X Games Munich. Gold events always attract the biggest names and from now on, things really do get serious as riders battle to put points on the board.
FISE Montpellier is an extreme sports festival, which always attracts the world‘s sporting elite and an intense, exciting atmosphere. The slopestyle competition is gearing up to be a thrilling event, as the riders will take on the brand new riverside course. The technical course has all the right features for the riders to lay down gnarly tricks and amaze the crowd. You can watch the event teaser right here on the FMB World Tour channel.
