From July 21st to 24th, the Go Big or Go Home is once again coming to the BIKE EXPO in Munich. After a week of building in the new Action Spots Hall at the BIKE EXPO trade show, the course for the dirt jump event is finally finished. The riders drop in from a spectacular, 8 meter high starting tower, that catapults them into an extremely fast course with three jumps.
The course for the dirt jump contest is already finished in the brand new Action Sports Hall and is waiting for riders to hit it with their best tricks. This year, riders will be starting from an 8-meter starting tower and are dropping into a decent step down, which gives the riders the speed they need for the first big sender. The three jumps on this extremely fast course have gaps of 8, 6 and 4 meters.
The short but sweet course planned by course designer Markus Hampl, gives great opportunity for big tricks. So, the spectators can look forward to spectacular dirt jump action: “The riders gather a lot of speed for the jumps which will definitely show in the enormous amplitude of the tricks. I’m pretty sure we’ll get to see a very compact show that’s definitely worth watching”, Hampl comments on his course.
Now nothing stands in the way of a truly great event – not even the weather. For the first time, the dirt jump contest of the BIKE EXPO is moved into the Action Sports Hall (Hall B6, Neue Messe München) and thus completely independent from any possible tricks the weather might play.
Saturday after the qualifiers (3pm – 5pm), we will find out which one of the riders needs to go home. Then on Sunday during the finals (starting at 2.30pm) we’ll see which rider will really go big and make it to the top of the podium at the prize ceremony right after the contest.
