You should keep a watchful eye over Vienna’s air space during the upcoming weekend. An elevated volume of traffic is particularly predicted for Sunday, the day of the VIENNA AIR KING finals 2014. A world-class collection of mountain bike athletes will take off to the skies in front of Vienna’s Rathausplatz. If you can’t make it to the heart of Vienna no worries: finals and superfinals will be streamed live via: http://win.gs/P1uSPm

Yes, there is a live webcast of VIENNA AIR KING available this weekend however, there are plenty more reasons to be onsite. The pinnacle of the weekend will be the next FMB World Tour contest VIENNA AIR KING, with a prize purse of 10,000 Euro but surrounding the dirt jump course, the ARGUS BIKE FESTIVAL features plenty more attractions: a bike-flea-market, E-bike testing tracks, a kids area as well as demo shows from trial rider Dominic Raab – overall, enough entertainment for the entire family.

On Sunday afternoon the action will peak when Vienna crowns its new ‘Air King’. Riders will have a tough battle ahead of them to reach the Sunday finals. Qualifications will begin on Saturday from 2:00pm and afterwards an open jam session will invite all the riders onto the dirt for the Panasonic Best Trick Competition, starting at 4:15pm. The local DJ Mosaken will be responsible for keeping the riders pumped and the crowd amped. A good chance to meet your favorite athletes will be at the official rider’s party on Saturday night in the famous club “Volksgarten”, on the other side of the Rathausplatz.

Before the action starts at 2:30pm on Sunday afternoon, fans can come along to the Red Bull Mobile tent for a signing session with some of the biggest names on the FMB World Tour. Who knows – you might even get an autograph from the upcoming VIENNA AIR KING.
Alongside the VIENNA AIR KING title, there will be a very special and exclusive prize up for grabs: the highest ranked VAK-participant who is currently not invited for Red Bull District Ride in Nuremberg will get a wild card for this FMB World Tour Diamond event in September.
