FMB World Tour Gold Event at the iXS Dirt Masters Festival 2023

There is one thing for sure: At an FMB World Tour Gold Event you can definitely count on the absolute stars of the sport. The invitation for this event is strictly based on the FMB World Ranking. This makes this year's contest one of the top 10 events of the world. Famous riders like Erik Fedko, Lukas Knopf or David Godziek have already found their way to the Bikepark Winterberg in the last years and really liked the event. The course has already been brought into shape and will get the final touches in spring, so that the venue is well worthy of the occasion.

FMB Gold Event 2023 neu One of the 10 events of the world 2023: the FMB World Tour Gold Event at the iXS Dirt Masters Festival.

Let's take a look at the history: Winterberg was already the venue of a slopestyle contest in 2006. Back then, Frank "Lippe" Weckert had the idea to organize a contest of this then still young discipline in the Bikepark Winterberg. This was the birth of a now very long tradition. Since then there has been every year (except for the pandemic break in 2020) a slopestyle contest. In addition, the Bikepark Winterberg with its lines offers perfect prerequisites for such an event because the Red Bull Berg Line took place here in 2012 and 2013. These facts can only mean that there will again be action at the highest level, which should not be missed. This was also confirmed by the last years, in which the slopestyle event was always one of the competitions with the highest number of spectators. After ten years it is about time to bring a contest of the magnitude of the Red Bull Berg Line back to Winterberg. For all those who were not there at that time, here are the highlights:

Orbea is the New Title Sponsor of the Enduro Race

And because we love good news, we provide the second one right after it: We could win a new partner for the Enduro race, which this year will host the German Championship. The Spanish bike manufacturer 'Orbea' will be the new title sponsor and the event will be called "Orbea Enduro Challenge" from now on. We are very happy to welcome the brand to the festival. With their attractive bikes they have already made a name for themselves in the sport. Therefore they are a perfect fit for the Enduro race. If you want to test the bikes at the festival, feel free to stop at the Orbea booth in the Expo Area. They are on site with an attractive product range this year!

For this, the regional manufacturer 'Germeta' will be the official partner and will ensure that no one has to stay thirsty at the the track. With the variety of products on offer, there will be something for every taste, just like at the festival itself. Cheers!
