FMX World Championship Continues

Upcoming Saturday the FIM Freestyle MX World Championships starts with the NIGHT of the JUMPs in Riga in it’s 2nd half of the season. A spectacular fight will approach, as the riders haven’t been on the IFMXF track for the last 4 months during the summer break. After seven rounds French rider Remi Bizouard leads the ranking with 123 points. Spain’s Jose Miralles follows 13 points behind. And with 108 or 107 scores US-Boy Brody Wilson and Vice World Champion Libor Podmol still have their chances of the title. Especially Podmol improved his strength at the last contests by premiering 1-Hand Nac Underflip and Stripperflip on the IFMXF track. We can be curious of what kind of new tricks the FMX athletes have invented over the summer months and will show in Riga.

Unfortunately Steve Mini crashed at a show in Melbourne/Australia and will not come back till Ostrava. Therefore André Villa from Norway returns to the IFMXF track. For his comeback at the IFMXF Villa surely will nail amazing tricks on the dirt. Luckily Massimo Bianconcini is back on the track after his horror crash at the Race and Style in Mannheim. And with Alexey Kolesnikof we will see a Russian FMX rider debuting at the NIGHT of the JUMPs.

And also from German rider Freddy Peters we can expect a new level of his freestyle. The FMX pro from Berlin just won the German FMX Championships and should be highly motivated to raise his account in the World Championship ranking. With current 45 points he is holding the 9th place overall.

The complete field of riders at the 7th contest of the FIM Freestyle MX World Championships consists:
Remi Bizouard (FRA)
Jose Miralles Garcia (ESP)
Brody Wilson (USA)
Libor Podmol (CZE)
Brice Izzo (FRA)
