Remi Bizouard wins FMX WC Battle in Beograd and equalizes with Villa

Beograd, 27th September 2008: After the summerbreak of the IFMXF it’s now time for Freestyle Motocross again. For the 6th contest of the FIM Freestyle MX World Championships the FMX riders came to the Arena Beograd for the Suzuki NIGHT of the JUMPs. Remi Bizouard won in the heat of Serbia und got the 20 World Championships points, which let him equalize with injured André Villa. Both now have 92 points in the Freestyle Motocross World Championship series. Czech Libor Podmol did a perfect Cliffhanger Flip and a massive Underflip, but he only came on 2nd position. Third went to Swedish Fredrik Johansson, who really enjoyed the big track on his 4-Stroke-Suzuki.


Within the summerbreak most of the riders worked on new extreme tricks. So the crowd in Serbia saw already in the qualification spectacular jumps. Remi Bizouard premiered with a Switchblade Flip on the IFMXF track. Both US-Boys Jack Rowe and Brody Wilson did a Tsunami Flip. Gilles Dejong made an unbelievable 1-Foot Lazyboy and Spanish Jose Miralles Garcia brought a massive show for the crowd. But he missed two tricks, so he could see the final from the audience. Finally Remi Bizouard, Libor Podmol, Fredrik Johansson, Brody Wilson, Jack Rowe und Brice Izzo made it into the final.


The next massive trick premiere came in the Whip contest. Jose Miralles Garcia did a Heelclicker Whip and won the contest. In the Step-up the Spanish guy won together with Bartosz Oglaza. Both made it over 9,50 meters.

In the final every rider tried to put the pressure even higher. Brice Izzo wanted to came onto the podium, but he had two Deadsailors and so his Shaolin Flip was only for the audience. Brody Wilson started his run with a massive Red Bull Quarterpipe jump. His run was nearly pefect, but in the Double up he had to thraw away his bike within the flip rotation and so he ended up 5th.



Jack Rowe came on 4th position. Libor Podmol beat Fredrik Johansson and made it on 2nd position. But today he could not reach Remi Bizouard. He did Switchblade, Cliffhanger and Ruler flips and put the 20 World Championship points on his account. Now he leads together with André Villa.

Next points of the FIM Freestyle MX World Championships will be given on 11th October at the Suzuki NIGHT of the JUMPs in Cologne.
