80,000 people witnessed a unique urban slopestyle course designed by freeride legend and previous District Ride winner Aaron Chase. The course starts with a drop from Nuremberg’s castle walls and then makes its way through the city center and five different districts that offer varying obstacles for the riders to master and trick off.

The 24-rider start list includes top-ranked participants Anthony Messere, Brandon Semenuk and Brett Rheeder. Emerging new talents such as Simon Pages, Nicholi Rogatkin and Carson Storch will also be taking part alongside familiar freeride veterans Darren Berrecloth, Yannick Granieri and Geoff Gulevich. Germany’s Peter Henke will be hoping to pull off the win in front of his home fans.
