In 2015 MUNICH MASH is set to get high and crazy as Swatch Prime Line returns. Above the unique roof of the Olympic Stadium the best riders in the world will take on an adrenaline-pumping descent all the way down to the shore of the Olympic Lake. Fans along the course will have perfect views of the spectacular jumps and tricks performed by the international mountain bike elite. The second edition of Swatch Prime Line at MUNICH MASH 2015 is rated as a Diamond Event on the FMB World Tour, the highest event category, meaning it is set to attract the crème de la crème. The FMB World Tour is a global series comprising over 30 events. Each year the world’s best battle it out for the title FMB World Champion.
The final day of the Swatch Prime Line event at MUNICH MASH 2014 could not have been any more exciting. After an intense trick battle between the 16 qualifiers, France‘s Louis Reboul took victory ahead of Swatch ProTeam rider Sam Pilgrim (GBR) and Tomas Lemoine (FRA). The Best Trick Award went to the Belgian rider Thomas Genon (BEL). Reboul showed his strong form during the qualification round and used his experience on the loop-the-loop section of the course to put together his winning run. Sam Pilgrim was also full or surprises: instead of jumping over the loop, like most riders, he performed a flawless Flair on it to thrill the crowd. “Swatch Prime Line was perfect: great weather, great atmosphere, great crowd,” commented Pilgrim. “It was really fun to ride here and a cool feeling to be back on the podium.”
