Nov 11, 2014  NIGHT of the JUMPs Frankfurt 2014 - The grand Finale Nov. 21st and 22nd
Freestyle motocross world championship to be decided in Frankfurt’s Festhalle. Two riders go head to head into the two final rounds.
It’s been nine years since the NIGHT of the JUMPs freestyle motocrossers last catapulted through the air in the Festhalle on their 100-kilo two and four-stroke dirt bikes. Now the world’s most extreme freestyle motocross series is returning to the Main metropolis for the deciding rounds in this year’s world championship.

The NIGHT of the JUMPs world tour will set up station in Frankfurt on November 21st-22nd, 2014. The Festhalle Frankfurt is to be the venue for the final two rounds of the FIM Freestyle MX world championship, and the world championship track will be laid out for the last time this season in the Festhalle’s historic domed hall.

Ten extreme athletes from five different countries will come together in the Main metropolis to battle for crucial points in the 2014 FIM Freestyle MX world championship. The FMX world champion will be crowned on German soil for the first time ever, ensuring that the Festhalle audience will get to see the very best FMX sport on offer and the toughest tricks currently performed anywhere in the world.

The field of starters for this season highlight is of the highest calibre and could hardly be bettered. No less than five world champions are in the line-up: David Rinaldo (FRA), Remi Bizouard (FRA), Podmol (CZE) and the two team world champions, Maikel Melero and Jose Miralles (both ESP). World championship runner-up Brice Izzo (FRA) will join them. These FMX riders on their own would form the most sensational line-up to ever grace a contest in the federal state of Hessen.

But then of course, the German flag also has its very worthy representatives. Germany’s two best FMX riders Hannes and Luc Ackermann already proved at the NIGHT of the JUMPs in China that they are fit to grace any final with their dare-devil tricks and will be prepared to take even bigger risks to finish on the podium in the Festhalle in front of a home crowd.

Czech flip combo machine Petr Pilat plus one other extreme motocrosser will complete the world’s best field of FMX riders.

This world championship showdown promises to be a real adrenaline-packed affair, as Podmol, who is currently second in the world championship standings, took one win and a second place at the NIGHT of the JUMPs competitions in China, reducing the gap on championship leader Maikel Melero to just six points. The 2010 Czech world champion will execute all the tricks he can muster to overtake the Spaniard and secure the title for a second time. But Melero for his part will also go all-out to finally fulfil his dream of lifting the world title. Fans can look forward to seeing tricks galore performed in Frankfurt, including, Double Grab backflips, 360s, Cliffhanger flips, Surfer Takeoff backflips, Rowdova flips and the new Porti Air.
