Night of the Jumps Rocks Berlin

March 2, 2018

Berlin recently caught some serious FMX action, hosting two rounds of Night of the Jumps. Eleven riders from six countries, including past world champions Maikel Melero, Remi Bizouard, Libor Podmol, and David Rinaldo competed for points toward the FIM World Championship. Rob Adelberg and Pat Bowden, representing Australia, were also on the hunt for some hardware. The final runs took place on Saturday with Germany’s own Luc Ackermann taking first place with a double backflip — which are still relatively rare in FMX. Podmol brought home second place with a California roll to no-hander landing. Rinaldo edged out Adelberg for third place with a buffet of a run that included a California roll, lazyboy flip, and egg roll. With this win, Ackermann takes the lead in the FIM World Championship series, with Melero and Podmol close on his heels. Check out the highlights below:
