The final 25 contenders for the 2011 Red Bull District Ride have been decided with Brandon Semenuk (CAN), already holding the title of FMB World Tour Champion, leading the field dropping into the historic streets of Nuremburg, Germany. Although already the world champ going into the final stop of the FMB World Tour, Semenuk will be fighting for a win to complete a perfect season with the likes of second place Cam Zink (USA) hot on his wheels.

Over 40,000 fans are expected on September 9 and 10 in the streets of Nuremburg as freeride legends, such as Darren Berrecloth (CAN), Cameron McCaul (USA) and Kyle Strait (USA), shred the city center alongside upstarts like 15-year-old Anthony Messere (CAN) hot off a second-place finish at the Bearclaw Invitational (CAN), and sure to be a fan favorite, the only German to actually compete, Amir Kabbani (GER).
