“Looping Louis” Wins Wildcard For Red Bull District Ride

Munich, July 22nd 2014 – All three event wildcard athletes for Red Bull District Ride are now set. After Szymon Godziek (POL) and Garrett Robertson (CAN) it was Louis Reboul (FRA) who won the last event wildcard. Last weekend, he surprised everybody with his victory at the FMB World Tour Gold event Swatch Prime Line Munich. Now, there are only ten more riders pending – eight will be selected according to the FMB World Ranking after Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler on August 16th. Two other wildcards will be awarded to particularly outstanding riders. Further information can be found on www.redbulldistrictride.com .
Simply amazing – Louis Reboul dominated Swatch Prime Line Munich from start to finish. It began when he became the first rider to attempt the full loop. Feeling confident, he added this unique feature into his dialed run to place him first in qualifying, and on Sunday he came out to steal the top spot on the podium. His impressive overall performance left big names behind him and the French rider could not be happier: "I've never made it into the Top 5 and now winning a FMB World Tour Gold event and getting a wildcard at the same time is simply unreal. I'm looking forward to the Red Bull District Ride."


 
The likeable Frenchman has been pursued by bad luck the past few years and suffered a long term a shoulder injury. This season, he is rising up the ranks once more. After a good sixth place at the Hall of Dirt (GER) and FISE World Montpellier (FRA), he now has a FMB World Tour stop win to his name and is ranked 19th in the FMB World Ranking. As an predominant part of the "French connection", one of the largest groups in the FMB World Tour, he receives great support from his countrymen who motivate and push him to reach his full potential. The course at Red Bull District Ride will certainly not intimidate him, so we can expect to see an impressive performance in Nuremburg.
 
There are only ten spots left for this urban freeride spectacle in Nuremberg's old town on September 6th. Of this, eight spots will be given according to the FMB World Ranking after Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx on August 16th. Two other spots will be awarded by the event host for outstanding athletes.
 
Here are the 14 already fixed riders:
FMB World Ranking

2014 Red Bull Wide Open Livigno Cancelled

ATP Livigno and Red Bull are sorry to inform that the event Red Bull Wide Open, set for July 11-13 in Livigno, has been cancelled.

The interruption of the track construction caused by the Corpo Forestale’s controls, doesn’t allow the completion of the race track, therefore creating serious safety issues for the athletes.
For this reason, APT Livigno and Red Bull have decided to cancel the event.

Luca Moretti, President of APT Livigno has declared: “I am confident in a positive resolution of the incident, considering that APT Livigno requested and received all necessary authorizations and has followed all regulations requested for the building of the track. I am though very disappointed and sadden as I believe that Livigno lost an important chance to show the world how much it is doing for the bike scene, considering the importance of this event on an International level.
