NIGHT of the JUMPs 15th season
NIGHT of the JUMPs entered its 15th season this weekend in Sofia (Bulgaria). The campaign opened with a brand new trophy at stake – the Golden Cup. In addition to the familiar individual championship, the points of the two best riders from each continent are aggregated to produce a team score.
This first round of 2015 was contested by riders from three continents. The honour of leading off went to Russia’s Nick Ivankov whose run ended in spectacular fashion. In the double-up, he attempted an extravagant Stripper Flip, but under-rotated on the landing, crashed and performed an involuntary double bodyflip. After brief attention from the medics, he was able to hobble out of the arena on his own two feet.
