NIGHT of the JUMPs returned for 2022 with the Freestyle of Nations in Munich and Cologne with almost back to back events after a couple of years in Covid-19 limbo and we wrap-up both events with this short, sharp podcast!

Firstly we cover Munich with the World Team vs Team Czech vs Team France.  Huge crashes, some controversial decisions I thought, but one hell of a return for the season.

And the second event held in Cologne just last weekend was between Team Germany vs Spain vs Italy.  And with some of the best riders having only 2 hours sleep, they still threw down like you would have never known!

Find out how Luc Ackermann managed to smash into the wall in Munich, Maxime Gregoire returning to try land the Nac-Flair which he crashed out on in Basel in 2021.  David Rinaldo on fire and filling in for Germany for some reason?!  Kai Haase returning to competition after his AMA SX training crash in the USA with a Front Flip with absolutely no training.  Marc Pinyol getting back on the bike after being heavily concussed only a few days before competition.

Plenty more went on, but you’ll have to listen to find out!
