FMB Silver Event

FMB Gold Event

This year it is the tenth time that the Swatch Rocket Air takes place and is once more offering a lot of activities and action. After the best riders from over 15 nations qualify on Friday and Saturday, the winner will be announced on Saturday evening. For the riders the prize money of 15'000 CHF and important points in the Freeride Mountain Bike Worldtour is not the only reason why they like to come to Thun. The event may take place in the Swiss Alps but the riders can get ready for a completely different kind of atmosphere as the motto takes the riders to the future!

Big Baang Party

The official afterparty of the Swatch Rocket Air. Directly after the Final on Saturday we will celebrate the Winner and all the riders!

Be there and party with the Riders!

Time: 10pm - 5am
