Pros from all around the world made it once again to Sérignan in South of France to celebrate the 8th edition of Lords of Dirt with a new more technical course.

On Friday the riders and the large crowd enjoyed the sunny afternoon with the Max Rider Best Trick and it was obvious that the size of bike was irrelevant!!

Saturday was just amazing with the PRO qualifications followed straight by the Masters Of Dirt best tricks. Sick riding level and insane new combos as the flip toboggan to no-hander to turndown by TSG ambassador Desmond Tessemaker who took 3Rd place; just behind Michael Meisel with a huge front flip tail whip and Adolf Silva, the young spanish freak who took the best trick victory with a perfect double flip.

The night continued with concerts and DJ set by MPC STEF who literally rocked the place as always.

Finals on Sunday went wild even with the common french wind putting some of the riders into troubles.

Brazilian and TSG Pro, Leandro Moreira took the 3. spot with insane runs and a signature flow that all of us love! German, new trick machine, Michael Meisel took 2. place. Lords of Dirt 2014 champion got the french JB Peytavit, who impressed with perfect runs and not a single mistake.

Thomas Genon wins the golden shovel at Hall of Dirt

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

 TSG’s “la Frite” Thomas Genon nailed the premiere of Hall of Dirt in Stuttgart last weekend. After his glorious victory with his team mates from Team France 1 at the Hall of Nations Cup on Saturday, he also took home the win of the FMB World Tour Silver Event on Sunday. He shared the podium with Antoine Bizet and the young shredder Torquato Testa.

Saturday was show time in Stuttgart. At the Hall of Dirt Nations Cup 9 teams consisting of 3 riders took the chance and represented their country. Every crew dropped in one after the other as a train supported by the cheering crowd. At the end Team Canada 2 as well as Team France 1 ruled the first 2 rounds and competed head to head in the final round. Louis Reboul, Mehdi Gani and Thomas Genon impressed with their tight runs and their opposite 360s at the last jump. The judges awarded them with a well-deserved victory score!

The trick level was high which meant: those who didn’t spill the beans at the main competition couldn’t make it into the finals. Antoine Bizet impressed from the very beginning: in his first run the Frenchman gained the lead with a huge double backflip. TSG’s Patrick Leitner and Sam Reynolds increased their performance from run to run, but couldn’t beat Bizet’s high score.

Only Thomas Genon could beat Bizet’s advanced performance. He showed perfectly executed tricks with maximum amplitude and a great variety. His truck driver, 360 table, double downside whip and a decade brought him an incredible score of 95.67 points and the first victory at the Hall of Dirt.

Felicitation Thomas!

Janne Korpi was satisfied coming in 3rd, after also having competed in the Slopestyle finals yesterday.

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

FMB World Tour Trophy

With an outstanding season and back to back podium results, TSG’s Sam Pilgrim has finally achieved what he has been fighting for over the last few years: the FMB World Tour overall title! Sam is the first ever European to win this title. Besides writing FMB World Tour history, Sam will be presented with the golden CamelBak Eddy Bottle and a major part of the 30,000 EUR overall cash prize money.

Sam’s consistency during the season was incredible. He landed on the podium at almost every event he competed in. He entered the season with a huge bag of tricks and the courage to send them at some of the biggest FMB World Tour Slopestyle competitions. In the end, his determination and focus gave him the victories he deserved and consequently enough points to claim the FMB World Tour title before the season finale at Red Bull Rampage. His top 6 results which collectively crown him FMB World Tour Champion are:

Event Level
Red Bull Berg Line (GER)
Crankworx Les2Alpes Slopestyle (FRA)
Colorado Freeride Festival Slopestyle (USA)
Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler (CAN)
Bearclaw Invitational (CAN)


Sam says about his victory:

Since the world tour first started I’ve always wanted to win the overall title cause after all that’s what it is all about – you travel the world and compete at events with the goal of winning the overall title. For the last three seasons I have always been in the lead of the FMB World Tour overall ranking but never managed to hold it together till the end. Finally I managed to stay in the lead and came out on top. This is just awesome.”
