The NIGHT of the JUMPs de­buts in Wuhan

Changjiang Weekly - - FOCUS -

On Oc­to­ber 2, the NIGHT of the JUMPs de­buted in Wuhan. Eleven rid­ers from seven coun­tries com­peted in the fi­nals. Pat Bo­den from Aus­tralia won the cham­pi­onship.

Luc Ack­er­mann, a 20-year-old Ger­man is the youngest rider in this event. Ack­er­mann's older brother is also a freestyle mo­tor­cy­cle rider and taught Luc how to ride a mo­tor­cy­cle when he was just three years old.

Li­bor Pod­mol from the Czech Repub­lic was a strong op­po­nent for Ack­er­mann. "The venue is so large and the game is in the open air, so the at­mos­phere will def­i­nitely be great," said Li­bor Pod­mol. He has come to China six or seven times be­fore. Although it is the first time that he has come to Wuhan, he feels at home. "I hope I could have a great per­for­mance in the race," he said.
