EUROBIKE SKYLINE RIDE
The outdoor area between Halls 9 and 11 will be the scene of particularly intense action during the EUROBIKE Festival Days. A special highlight will take place here on Saturday 16.07. and Sunday 17.07., when the world's best MTB slopestyle riders will let off steam on the approximately 130-meter-long dirt course, peppered with four jumps and a hip feature.
After the pre-qualifying on Friday, action is already guaranteed for Saturday with the qualifying and especially the best trick contest in the late afternoon. The finale follows on Sunday afternoon, when the remaining finalists around superstars Emil Johansson and Erik Fedko will take to the course from the ten-meter-high starting tower at around 3 p.m. In addition to prize money, fame and glory, the Eurobike Gold Event also has a very special prize up its sleeve: a wildcard for the Red Bull District Ride in Nuremberg in September will go to the best rider who has not yet qualified.

At just 22 years of age, Emil Johansson’s talent has already sent him around the world, from the far reaches of Rotorua (NZL) to the world’s biggest Slopestyle stage at Red Bull Joyride (CAN). Living and breathing bikes since the age of eight, he’s never regretted a minute spent in this sport, and his hard work, dedication, and perseverance have paid off in a big way.
Since starting riding the FMB World Tour in 2016, he’s managed to finish in the top five of the four biggest Slopestyle competitions. In 2017, his success continued as he took both the FMB Diamond Series World Title and the Crankworx Slopestyle World Tour Title, all within the same year. In 2019, Emil made his dreams come true, winning the infamous Red Bull Joyride in Whistler and backed that up in 2020 with the win in Crankworx Rotorua and Innsbruck. In 2021, Emil didn’t stop dreaming and achieved a perfect season by winning the Triple Crown and becoming the FMB World Champion.
Erik Fedko has a strong passion for anything with two wheels. Whether it is Dirt Jumping, Slopestyle, or even Motocross, Erik takes on all disciplines with his powerful yet relaxed style! Erik has catapulted himself into the elite of Slopestyle Mountain Biking, fearlessly competing with the best in the game. 2017 was a breakthrough year; Erik rode all the way to a 2nd place at O Marisquino in Spain, taking home a Wildcard for the legendary Red Bull District Ride, where he competed in front of a German home crowd of 80.000 Slopestyle fans.
Erik took the next step in 2018 when he took 5th place at Crankworx Innsbruck and landed his first career podium at Diamond Level with a 3rd place at Crankworx Les Gets. This consistent progression continued with 3rd place at Red Bull Joyride he has secured 3rd place overall in the FMB World Championships. In 2019, Erik established himself further in the world elite. After finishing 5th at Red Bull Joyride, Erik scored high at Audi Nines: he won the Slopestyle Contest, the Best Trick Award on the Big Bike, and the Best Style Award.
In 2020 Erik started the season with a bang with his flawless style and unique trick list putting him in 3rd place at Crankworx Rotorua.
2021 was also a special year for Erik. Due to his excellent performance in all the contests, he ended up in third place in the overall ranking of the FMB World Tour. The future is bright for possibly the biggest German talent out there!
“Super Stoked to have the EUROBIKE SKYLINE RIDE contest in Frankfurt this year. Having a gold event where riders can get a wildcard for a diamond event is super cool. It has been a couple of years since the Eurobike last had a real contest, now having the gold event with the opportunity of getting a wildcard is awesome. For me, Frankfurt is just around the corner and has a big biking scene around the area, so a lot of riders will go there. It is huge chance for new riders and young guns. It truly is a great opportunity for them to go there and meet some sponsors and to make some new contacts. Also love the idea of the course this year being dirt to dirt jumps only.“
2015 was history in the making for Tomas. Placing 4th at Red Bull Joyride @Crankworx Whistler, the most prestigious event of the year, showed that Tomas was one to watch out for. True to expectations, Tomas has established himself amongst the elite of the Slopestyle scene, finishing in the Top 10 of the FMB Diamond Series Overall Ranking in 2016 and 2017 with several podiums along the way.
The young Frenchman’s talent isn’t limited to Slopestyle though. Tomas also regularly competes in various other disciplines and has racked up several podiums and victories at high-profile pumptrack races, just as taking the overall win in the Crankworx Speed&Style World Championship in 2018. Even though 2020 wasn’t a full season and didn’t crown an overall winner Tomas managed to secure two 1st places at Rotorua and Innsbruck. 2021 season also delivered, with several podium finishes through the Crankworx stops.
“Super Excited to go back to the Eurobike as it’s a gold event. What is even better is that the whole course is going to be dirt jumps only, which we haven’t seen a long time in slopestyle competition. It gets me stoked to ride. There is always a good crowd there, a lot of bike fans and that’s what we are there for.”
Riding is everything for Thomas, aka Tommy G, as he is known to his friends in the cycling world. He spends every second he can on his bike.

“I am stoked to go to the Eurobike this year. They have designed a cool course and I am also happy to meet all the brands I am riding for. I also can´t wait to meet all my friends and have a good time riding with them which means that there is pretty much everything in one place.”
Lucas Huppert’s, a.k.a. Huppi, interest in bikes started early, when he was only 7 years old, he was already riding in the local bike club and has continued with the same passion ever since.
In 2016 Lucas started his apprenticeship and also working as an electrician. He was able to combine his passion with work and studies and one year later, 2017, is when Huppi started competing internationally. Then everything kicked off, Lucas got invited to the biggest event in Slopestyle, Red Bull Joyride. And finished with a solid 8th place on his first appearance around the wold’s bests. In August 2020 he managed to successfully finish his apprenticeship as class best.
With all the obligations accomplished, Lucas has now the chance of live his childhood dream and live through his passion, ride bikes.
“I am really looking forward to going back to Eurobike. Especially since I won the competition in 2017 which was the first major event I won. Even with prize money. I still have some good memories of back then, and now with a new location, a gold event we will make it all better and bigger and that’s just perfect in my opinion. I also can meet all my partners at the trade show and show them what I can do on the jumps. I can’t wait to meet all the boys again, ride my bike and have a good time.”
