To say it feels incredible to see events happening again would be an understatement. To hear the cheering of the ecstatic Swiss crowd at NIGHT of the JUMPs in September was unbelievable and to witness the elation from the actual FMX and MTB riders who threw down on the night was even more impressive.
NIGHT of the JUMPs is back with the first competition after the Lockdown and they are bringing a new format to Switzerland for the first time, the Freestyle of Nations!
Don’t be as confused about the Teams in the first major FMX competition of 2021, as the French rider, Maxime Gregoire was here!
Maybe even Maxime can meet the new Skateboarding X Games gold medallist Luc Ackermann and Juventus star, Edgar Torronteras at Night of the Jumps 😂😂😂Read more
David who’s the Body Varial specialist, and Remi Bizouard also an innovator as the first guy to attempt the Hart Attack flip about 15 years ago at X Games, will be benefitted by having Maxime who’s all about the Quarter Pipe to throw a completely different run of tricks.Read more
Edgar Torronteras joined the latest podcast to talk about the Best Trick competition and more specifically, David Rinaldo not taking home the Gold Medal, which went to Australia’s Rob Adelberg.
It was an incredibly tough decision, but Rob took the win with the Front Flip no hander which was absolutely perfect.Read more
It’s time for the big one! Best Trick is the event we wait for every year to see what everyone has been working on, and after last years hiatus, I think it’s fair to assume everyone was really looking forward to this event since the guys had effectively 2 years to hone their tricks!
And it looked like only David Rinaldo was willing to bring something completely new to the game with his new body varial, called the Bobby Spin
Adam Jones gives his wrap-up of the Freestyle Motocross competition in the latest Riders Lounge Podcast episode and gave one of the biggest compliments I think any rider would want to hear from a fellow rider!
Luc Ackermann took the gold medal at X Games, but I think this badge of honour has been coming for a while, so it was cool to hear Adam saying what he thinks.
From Luc’s incredible win, to Sheeny’s impressive run, Adelberg’s mistake that cost him potentially a win and David Rinaldo landing an all new trick! Bink and Benny Richards took dirt samples and couldn’t finish and Taka was perfect like always and Jacko made some big mistakes which we didn’t expect! X Games had it all!!!
It’s finally official. X Games is back for 2021! July 14-18th and the Moto will be held at Axell Hodges’ compound, Slayground!
New Riders. New Location. New Discipline.
Plenty of old guys! A few big names missing, and a few big surprises as well!
