Following a two-year hiatus, Nuremberg’s historical city center and imposing medieval castle takes center stage in hosting the world’s top freeride bike athletes for Red Bull District Ride, airing as part of the Red Bull Signature Series on NBC this Sunday, Nov. 30 at 12:30 p.m. ET / 9:30 a.m. PT.
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.
Red Bull District Ride is brought to a national television audience in partnership with Dodge Dart, GoPro and Polaris RZR. Sal Masekela, the definitive voice in action sports, hosts the Red Bull Signature Series all year long on NBC.
