From ESPN – On Wednesday the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and the International Freestyle Motocross Federation (IFMXF) announced a three-year extension of their partnership with event promoter SportPlus[...]to introduce a new event, the FIM Freestyle of Nations, debuting in 2013. “Freestyle Motocross is a very entertaining and exciting discipline combining the show element with top sport,” said FIM CEO Stéphane Desprez, in a statement on Wednesday. “The riders work hard and step up their performances with every event. Sportplus gives them the perfect showcase to battle it out for the FIM Freestyle Motocross World Championship. Creating a Freestyle of Nations event will certainly be a boost for the sport.”
You mark my words: this event will be without question the most epic freestyle moto event ever, and it will have nothing to do with the guys on the top of the board. I’m talking about team China, team Mozambique, team Sri Lanka, all throwing down everything they’ve got. If you thought the B-final at MXdN was entertaining, wait until you see the B-final at FMXdN. And they better have to ride the same course as everyone else. In that case, the first practice will be one for the books. There will be so many great videos, YouTube will melt down when they hit the web. Like, people thought there was a dead body problem at the Mexican GP, but they haven’t seen shit. Bodies everywhere, you won’t be able to sweep them off the course fast enough. Honestly, if China is not going to attend the event, I will boycott it right alongside them. Sometimes, you just have to stand up for your principles, and call me a dreamer, but I believe there should be hilariously terrible teams at the FMXdN.
