2015 Night Of The Jumps Attracts Top International Riders

Posted:

The first ever NIGHT of the JUMPs took place at the Riesa Arena in 2001.

In the 15 years since, virtually everyone who is anyone has competed in the world‰Ûªs most extreme freestyle motocross series. Iconic figures and legends of FMX such as Mike Metzger, Mad Mike Jones, Jeremy Stenberg, Ailo Gaup, Mat Rebeaud, Ronnie Renner, Adam Jones, Mike Mason, AndrÌ© Villa, Matt Buyten and many more besides have gone on the chase for championship points.

In preparation for the 15th anniversary season, the NIGHT of the JUMPs organisers have recruited one of the most competitive line-up of riders in the history of the series. And the first name on the wish list was obviously reigning world champion Maikel Melero from Spain.

The FIM Freestyle MX World Champion will be defending his title with might and main, and to be extra sure, he is working on a new box of tricks over the winter.

The man from whom he inherited the title, David Rinaldo, is also on board for the ride. The Frenchman‰Ûªs presence guarantees spectators the thrill of tricks such as the California Roll and Doublegrab Flip Indy. Five-time runner-up and 2010 World Champion Libor Podmol reckons he still has what it takes.

Someone else keen to add to his trophy cabinet is three-time world champion Remi Bizouard; in the final event of the 2014 season in Frankfurt, he came within a whisker of claiming his fourth world title with a superb Body Varial. This can only serve as a further incentive for the Frenchman in the forthcoming campaign.

Dany Torres is another challenger intent on launching a fresh attempt at the world title after securing the 2014 Team World Championship; the individual title is the obvious next target. So there are five previous FIM Freestyle MX World Champions who must surely fancy their chances in 2015.
