On Oct. 9, the Suzuki Night of the Jumps / FIM Freestyle MX World Championship returns to Lanxess Arena Cologne in Germany. Equal to 2008, the World Cup in Cologne takes place during the Intermot motorbike expo.
It will be the first contest after the summer break and the riders are on fire. Brice Izzo and Jose Miralles will smash all of their tricks onto the track to attack World Championship leader Libor Podmol.
After six rounds of the FIM Freestyle MX World Championship Czech Libor Podmol leads with 112 points ahead of Brice Izzo (FRA) and Jose Miralles (ESP), both with 86 points. They will present a bunch of new tricks to beat Podmol and close the gap towards him.
World Champion Remi Bizouard will return to the IFMXF in Cologne. After his long-term injury the French superstar will take his minimal chance to get back in the fight for the title. There are still seven rounds of the FIM Freestyle MX World Championship left and 140 points to give. So everything is possible.
With Massimo Bianconcini (ITA), Alastair Sayer (BOT) and Brody Wilson (USA) No. 5 and 6 of the World Championship will join the field of riders. Bianconcini has 62 points on his account. Sayer and Wilson are following with 47 points each. Fir sure they worked on new tricks during the summer and try to attack for the places on the podium.
Against this fleet of international FMX heroes the best German Freestylers Fabian Bauersachs, Hannes Ackermann and Lukas Weis will battle. Bauersachs lately won the German Championship ahead of his rivals and wants to rule in the World Championship as well. But Hannes Ackermann worked on new backflip combos in the summer and Lukas Weis did a 360 on dirt. So we will see a most spectacular FMX fight in and the entire FMX and motor sports world will look to Cologne.
In celebration of the 10years anniversary of the NIGHT of the JUMPs series the crowd in Lanxess arena will see the amazing Race-and-Style contest and for the first time a backflip on a snowmobile. All motorcycle and FMX fans should come to the NIGHT of the JUMPs Cologne as every ticket allows free entrance for one day at the Intermot expo.
