From the start of the year at a snowy Leogang to the end in the mountains of Utah at Rampage, we review another great year on the FMB World Tour.

Freeride mountain biking is constantly progressing and 2013 saw tricks becoming even bigger and more technical than ever before. There was also the emergence of a group of new riders on the scene such as Peter Henke, Anton Thelander and Matt Jones and the appearance of a slopestyle event at the X Games in Munich for the first time.

Sam Pilgrim took the overall FMB World Tour title for 2013 with Martin Söderström and Brett Rheeder finishing second and third respectively. Injuries curtailed their season but Sam showed consistency throughout the year and is a worthy winner for 2013.

The first FMB World Tour event for 2014 kicks off in January with the FMBA promising some exciting changes in store and new developments for this season. Keep your eyes peeled to Red Bull Bike for announcement of the 2014 calendar in the coming weeks.

For now, relive the 2013 season again here with links to video features, photo stories and associated content from all the major events on the tour this last year.
