Swatch Rocket Air – The Return of Sam Pilgrim

For the fifth time, the Flying Metal Crew is transforming the ice rink of Thun, Switzerland for the legendary Swatch Rocket Air. It’s all about flying bicycles this coming weekend. And Great Britain’s Sam Pilgrim, the 2013 champion, will be back. With a whole crew of British riders, the 23- year-old hopes to defend his title and take home the Team Battle trophy for the first time. 

Ready for Swatch Rocket Air 2014?

Thousands of bike fans watched last year as Britain’s Sam Pilgrim spun with the grace of an ice princess in the ice rink of Thun, Switzerland. After a great season, the 2013 winner of the Swatch Rocket Air also earned himself the title of Freeride Mountain Biking world champion. It’s going down again in one month: for the fifth time, the Flying Metal Crew is transforming Thun’s ice rink into a massive slopestyle track. Next to Pilgrim, other great riders such as Thomas Genon, Peter Henke, Tom van Steenbergen and many more are expected to share their own unique style as they throw down their best tricks at this year’s event.
