Watch as all the action goes down in Cologne at NIGHT of the JUMPs with Team Germany up against Italy and SpainRead more
From the first batch of 44 photos I received from NIGHT of the JUMPs there were 3 that stood out for the ‘not-so-obvious’ reasonsRead more
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!
Two of the world’s best riders, Luc Ackermann and David Rinaldo, both world champions and X Games gold medallists were in the German team which was complimented by the return of Kai Haase after his supercross training accident in the USA.Read more
What does it take to achieve your childhood dream?
Kai Haase just took the best from his 2021 season riding every damn 2-wheel discipline he could and amplified it by x1000 as he rode in his first ever Monster Energy AMA Supercross event, and not just any old round, but the biggest one! ANAHEIM 1
Finally some good news after 2 years of Covid postponements. The big events are coming back!
And that means more motivation for the best riders in the world to throw down. Who will be on top of 2022?
A new year, new events, new bikes and way more news from the Freestyle Motocross world in 2022.
Funnily enough, I didn’t even bother to check my emails but the Riders Lounge Podcast has been shortlisted on the Sports Podcast Awards a couple of weeks ago.
Freestyle of Nations in Basel was one hell of an event, it was unreal to return after 18 months and you could see all the riders were so damn pumped just to ride. And the fans were so loud they nearly blew the top off the St. Jakobshalle in Switzerland!Read more
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!
