Air to the Throne: Update
Air to the Throne goes ahead but there's a change to plans...
Despite all best efforts, we are disappointed to announce that plans for Air to the Throne to be a Gold FMB WorldTour in 2018 have been put on hold. Please see below a full statement from event organisers, Action Sport Productions.
"After an amazing debut on the FMB calendar in 2017, delivering one of the most spectacular events of the year, Air to the Throne was looking forward to its newly awarded Gold FMB status. Despite its success and our best efforts, we are sad to announce that we have been forced to scale back our plans for the contest. Air to the Throne will continue to run as a Bronze level invitational and has already received entry requests from some of the world's top ranked riders. We will of course be working towards growing the event again in 2019, we would like to thank the riders for their continued support and can’t wait for another epic battle for the Throne!" James - Action Sport Productions
Despite the changes, we are thrilled to confirm Air to the Throne will still take place at the London Bike Show as an FMB WorldTour Bronze event. With a significant prize purse, and a huge course planned, the competition promises to be spectacular for spectators - with a number of the world's best riders planning to ride.

More information on riders competing will be announced over the coming weeks.
