Night Of The Jumps Heads to Linz, Austria This Weekend

Posted:

Freestyle motocross riders will fly through the air, almost grazing the roof of the Tips Arena on their dirt bikes at the NIGHT of the JUMPs, January 16th/17th.

Contestants will also secure their first points towards the 2015 FMX championship in these two opening rounds of the Freestyle MX European championship.

German rider Hannes Ackermann is back in harness in Linz after a two-year break. The 24-year-old notched up his greatest triumph in 2013 with second place in the Tips Arena to claim his first podium in the world‰Ûªs most extreme freestyle motocross series.

He was narrowly beaten at the time by his buddy David Rinaldo. Injury put Hannes out of action last year, but he is now keen to celebrate his return with a repeat of the success he achieved in Linz two years ago.

He is definitely a podium contender with new tricks like the Rowedova Flip and Porti Air Flip first developed by him. However, he will have to beat off stiff competition from younger brother Luc, who, last year at the NIGHT of the JUMPs in Frankfurt, just missed his maiden podium in the series by a whisker to take a sensational fourth place.

Freestyle motocross aces from three continents will appear in Linz in 2015. Reigning FMX world champion Maikel Melero from Spain is in the line-up. Three
