2013 was an outstanding year for the FMB World Tour. The Tour grew to 33 events worldwide this year taking the sport to new global audiences. The level of riding and trick progression has also never been higher with new emerging talented riders aiding the quality of competition as never before.
North America’s domination of the sport ended this year with Sam Pilgrim becoming the first European to win the FMB World Tour title. Sam got on the podium at almost every event he competed in and it was this consistency that gave him enough points to claim the FMB World Tour title before the season finale at Red Bull Rampage.
Brandon Semenuk might have ducked out of a few competitions this year to focus on other interests but he still showed ultimately he is the man to beat with wins at Joyride and the Bearclaw Invitational.
Another Canadian, Brett Rheeder, is the man to watch out for in 2014. Victories at Berg Line and at the X Games showed him as a rider that can now perform with ease in the big pressure contests.
