The contest in Riga can turn out to the turning point of the FIM Freestyle MX World Championship 2010. After seven rounds of the World Championship Czech rider Libor Pomol still has the lead with 112 points ahead of Brice Izzo (FRA). But with his victory in Cologne the French athlete closed the gap on the leader to six points. In Latvia Izzo can put himself on top of the ranking, especially because it is not sure that Podmol can ride.

But even Jose Miralles (ESP) will risk everything in Riga to reach the top position. The Spaniard, current on 3rd position (104 points), is only two points behind Izzo and eight points behind Podmol.

Remi Bizouard had a huge comeback in Cologne. After a six month’ longing injury he returned to the NIGHT of the JUMPs track and made it directly onto the podium, only beaten by Izzo and Miralles.

So everyone can be sure, the World Champion from 2008 and 2009 will show all of his hard backflip tricks in Arena Riga to win the Latvian World Cup and climb in the World Championship ranking. Currently he is level on points with Alastair Sayer on 7th position.

Next to Bizouard and Sayer the Top 10 World Championship riders Massimo Bianconcini (ITA), Brody Wilson (USA), Fabian Bauersachs and Lukas Weis (both GER) will start in Latvia.

If Libor Podmol can get on the bike on Saturday, only Rob Adelberg is missing from the Top 10 riders of the NIGHT of the JUMPs series 2010.

With Petr Pilat (CZE), Hannes Ackermann (GER) and Martin Koren (CZE) three more athletes out of the Top 14 from FIM Freestyle MX World Championship 2010 will compete in Riga. Russian Aleksey Koleshnikov completes the field or riders.

This upcoming Saturday the entire FMX scene will look to Riga and see, if this will be the turning point in the NIGHT of the JUMPs / FIM Freestyle MX World Championship series 2010. Who is not able to make it to Riga, can watch the fight live in the web on www.spobox.tv.
