NIGHT of the JUMPs Hamburg 2017

Coming up on the 3rd of June the LifeProof sponsored NIGHT of the JUMPs world series will take over the Hanseatic city of Hamburg. This is the 6th time the event will return with the best athlete’s competing in the BarclayCard Arena. It’s shaping up as the toughest fight for the Freestyle Moto Cross title as of yet, so every point counts coming into this round.   

Team LifeProof star Luc Ackermann will be one of the eleven riders that will be fighting it out for NIGHT of the JUMPs points, including the Spanish three-time World Champion, Maikel Melero who is currently in the lead of the World Championship series in 2017. The 2010 World Champion and 2016 runner-up, Libor Podmol (CZE) will also be hunting for top points in Hamburg. The current third place rider in the World Championship series in 2017, Pat Bowden will return from Australia to show the fans new tricks such as his Double Grab backflip and Rock Solid Backflip.

Luc Ackermann’s older brother Hannes Ackermann will be celebrating his comeback in the BarclayCard Arena after six months out with injury. The crowd can expect some huge tricks from the Thüringen rider who won the NIGHT of the JUMPs contest in Hamburg in 2015. The Berliner, Kai Haase will round out the ranks of the German riders.

The French duo of former World Champions, Remi Bizouard and David Rinaldo will be looking to improve their results for the season. Bizouard, especially will be looking to prove that his Flair 540 is on lockdown after unveiling it for the first time at NIGHT of the JUMPs in Munich. However after breaking his gear lever on his second trick of his run, the competition was over for him and this will be the fuel his fire to return to Hamburg and disrupt the podium positions.

The Czech flip combo king, Petr Pilat (CZE), will be wanting to return to the final 6 after recent poor results. The runner-up to the World Championship in 2010, Brice Izzo (FRA), Leonardo Fini (ITA) will round out the rider’s field plus Massimo Bianconcini (ITA) who will compete in the Maxxis Highest Air and LifeProof Best Whip competitions.
