23.11.2009 IFMXF FIM World Championships in Windhoek (NAM) - Results

Steve Mini lights bushfire in Namibia

This was never seen in Namibia. On Saturday 12 FMX athletes of the IFMXF entered the African continent and jumped Windhoek for the NIGHT of the JUMPs into the ground. The air was burning on the FMX parkour at Tony Rust Race Track. Remi Bizouard gambled away in the qualifying and missed the finals. But in the end he could celebrate, as Podmol and Miralles only came up on fourth and fifth position. So the French rider has a lead of 23 points and defended his title.

Windhoek saw a sensation already in the qualification. Local hero Alistar Sayer from Botswana debuted a never seen Whip 9-O-Clock Indy and reached the finals. Jose Miralles started with a 40 degrees fever handicap, but with a solid run he came under the best six. Brody Wilson won the qualification ahead of Down Under wonder boy Steve Mini. The Australian rider had no problems with the track or conditions and ruled with triple combos and several no hand landings. Libor Podmol and Brice Izzo did not pull every of their hard tricks in the qualifying, but made it into the finals. Current World Champ Remi Bizouard missed that. He wanted to do it the save way and found himself on 7th position.

In the break Massimo Bianconcini won the Whip contest and Steve Mini the first ever Best Trick contest in NIGHT of the JUMPs history. Best trick came into the program instead of the Highest Air contest that had to fail due to the dry dirt.

In the finals Libor Podmol and Alistar Sayer risked everything to reach the podium. But both crashed after a landing and missed it. Bad luck for Podmol because with a place on the podium he would have been hold his chance of winning the World Championship title. The handicapped Jose Miralles could not reach his normal performance and ended up on fifth position. Brody Wilson pulled all his tricks with perfect extension, but had his problems at one of his flips. Brice Izzo gave everything in his final run including Shaolin and Cordova flip. But even that was not enough to beat Steve Mini on this day. The Australian rider pulled a Tsunami flip for the first time ever and won the NIGHT of the JUMPs Namibia.
