The NIGHT of the JUMPs crew has built a perfect playground for the best Freestyle MX riders in the world. During the training for the 5th round for the FIM Freestyle MX World Championship the riders in attendance have pushed the limits again and presented some new tricks at the NIGHT of the JUMPs.
The attending media witnessed Jeremy Rouanet performing NIGHT of the JUMPs first Front Flair over the mechanical quarter pipe.
Fans of Luc Ackermann took a deep breath when the leading rider in the Freestyle MX World Championship did the first Alley-Oop Flair and crashed. Maikel Melero (ESP), runner up in the World Championship performed double flips in the week prior to the event and put some pressure to Luc Ackermann.
The local Swiss crowd will be there to support the all-star hero Mat Rebeaud the first World Champion in Freestyle MX in his home country tonight. Mat is back at the NIGHT of the JUMPs but instead of competing on a 2 or 4 stroke the Swiss Dare Devil will be the first rider ever - competing in a FIM FMX World Championship with a full electric bike.
The show starts tonight in Zurich legendary Hallenstadion at 19:00 local time. Some tickets are left for the box office so - don't hesitate to show up. Doors open 17:00.
For all who can't attend the event in Zurich / Switzerland today we set up a live stream on our nightofthejumps.tv. Starting at 19:00 with full event coverage.
