Nissan Qashqai Challenge Final, Live Webcast on Freecaster.tv
The finals of the Nissan Qashqai Challenge will take place in London on Saturday May 24. It is the last of four events which have taken place in major European cities. This weekend in London, all those riders who competed in Munich will battle it out for valuable ranking points and a share of the 100,000 euro prize purse. The first ranking riders after these finals will receive 40,000 euro, second, 25,000 euro and third 12,000. This year fifteen amateur riders were given the chance to compete against the world's best pro riders, thanks to the addition of two Open events in Milan and Madrid.
In total 30 riders will be showing off their unbelievable skills in a bid to become the freeride champion of the year. The top three ranking riders following the Munich stage Martin Soderstrom (SWE), Trond Hansen (NOR) and Brandon Semenuk (CAN) travel to London hoping to win as many ranking points as possible to stay at the top but with the final contest involving a qualifying round which will leave only 12 in the finals, all contestants will be pulling out all the stops. Strong competition will come from Paul Basagoitia (USA), Andreu Lacondeguy (ESP), Benny Korthaus (GER) and Jamie Goldman (USA) making Saturday's event a battle of the world's finest. It has been so tight until now with the top riders having very few points between them, it's anybodies guess as to who the title and mountain biking’s biggest cash pay out will go.
