NIGHT of the JUMPs Brazil
Story and pics by Oliver Franke

Brazil saw a grand final of this year’s Freestyle Motocross season. At the NIGHT of the JUMPs Fortalesa three riders fought for the Vice World Champion title that grabbed Jose Miralles ahead of Libor Podmol and Brice Izzo. Podmol, who had a crash in the practice, was irritated due to the rain before his run and made a deadsailor. So Miralles had an easy game and saved the 2nd place in the overall ranking. Winner of the NIGHT of the JUMPs Fortalesa was Remi Bizouard, who had to make up for his 7th place in Namibia.

On Saturday 20.000 spectators stormed into the Estadio Casteloa to be part of the season closing of the FIM Freestyle MX World Championship. And the audience saw already in the qualification the best in Freestyle Motocross. Local heroes Octavio Mello, Fred Kyrillos and Giancarlo Bergamini appealed to the emotions, before Hannes Ackermann did the first flips of the day.




After him Marcelo Simoes showed a MaseTwist and Shoebox to No-Hand-Landing. Steve Mini was doing the same run as he did at his victory in Namibia. Due to problems at his No-Hand Can to No-Hand-Landing he shouldn’t make it to the finals. Into this Gilmar Flores flipped himself next to Fabian Bauersachs, Brice Izzo, Libor Podmol, Jose Miralles und Remi Bizouard.




At the Race-and-Style contest Octavio Mello took the win against Hannes Ackermann, who crashed. Mello was close to win the Highest Air as well, but finally Massimo Bianconcini did it.

Next was a most packing final with Libor Podmol, who lost the fight for the Vice World Champion title.



Flores did flips like Whipped Clickerflip and ended up on 5th position. Brice Izzo did huge combos, but Miralles took the 2nd place and saved the Vice World Championship. But next to Flores, Fabian Bauersachs was the biggest surprise of the day.



The German rider did a soild final run and put himself on the podium for the first time in 2009! But overall ruled Remi Bizouard. The World Championship did an amazing final run and took the last victory in this year.


The official NIGHT of the JUMPs FIM Freestyle MX World Champion 2009 Remi Bizouard won the last round of the Series on Brazil.

So this FMX season is over. Now the IFMXF takes a winter break and comes back on the February 13th and 14th with the NIGHT of the JUMPs / FIM Freestyle MX World Championship in Berlin.
