FIM FreeStyle of Nations

For the first time in FreeStyle Motocross history, the riders of “Night of the Jumps,” an FIM FreeStyle MX Championship, will have its own “Nations” event – the FIM FreeStyle of Nations.

During the event, which was created by a combination of the FIM and Sport Plus and will begin in 2014, the top Night of the Jumps riders will compete for the “Freestyle Crown.”

But the FIM reports the Nations event won’t be capped at just FreeStyle MX runs; the event will also feature many of the current contests in the Night of the Jumps, including Maxxis Highest Air, Whips, Best Trick, and Race and Style.

Just as the Motocross of Nations and Trials of Nations, the teams, which will arrive from all over the world, will vie for points. the FIM says the nature of the event will guarantee top sports performances from riders who will be eager to defend their countries’ colors.

The first FIM FreeStyle of Nations is scheduled for May 31, 2014, at Schalke Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

Vito Ippolito (FIM President Mr Vito Ippolito) says: “Just like Motocross and Trials, FreeStyle Motocross will now have its ‘Nations’ event. From experience, I know that this type of competition always brings out the best in the riders. We will be seeing top class sport at the FIM FreeStyle of Nations!”

Joerg Hotzel (SportPlus Director) says: “As long term producers of the ‘Nights of the Jumps / FIM Freestyle MX World Championship,’ we are looking forward to taking Freestyle Motocross to the next level. With the FIM FreeStyle of Nations, together with the FIM and its Federations, we are breaking ground in this demanding and spectacular sport!”
