In the stunt shows at INTERMOT, the best in the business turn physics on its head and demonstrate what seems impossible on two wheels but is still possible for the “masters”. Every two years, the top acts on the stunt scene present hot tricks in the event spaces at Cologne's leading international motorcycle fair. Now the absolute stunt highlight awaits visitors to INTERMOT 2018: the first European Stunt Championship Finale.
Hungarian Herczeg Balász, also known as “Troger Mokus” (Flying Squirrel) is considered one of the best European stunt riders and has already thrilled the audience at INTERMOT many times. Along with event manager Imre Ujhelyi, who secured the rights to the European Street Freestyle Cup at the FIM/ Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme, he initiated the first European Stunt Championship. The large numbers of visitors and the international orientation of INTERMOT convinced the planners of the European Stunt Championship to hold the Finale exclusively in Cologne.
On 6 February, the contract was finally signed for the Stunt EM Finale to take place at this year's INTERMOT. The 50 best stunt riders from 15 nations are expected to fight for the European stunt riding crown over the three-day competition on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The tentative schedule for the FIM European Stunt Championship - INTERMOT 2018:
3 – 4 October 2018: Free practice
5 – 7 October 2018: Competition with compulsory and freestyle rounds
As an event-oriented trade fair, INTERMOT will once again not only be offering its visitors product displays by companies exhibiting at the fair and the European Stunt Championship, but also a host of other highlights on the topics of motorcycles, scooters and motorsport. On the different test tracks, the visitors will be able to try out the new models for themselves. Whether novice, returner or experienced motorcycle or scooter rider – with the range of test tracks available, no one is left out. From 3 to 7 October 2016, INTERMOT will showcase the latest motorcycles, scooters, e-bikes as well as the most important developments in electric mobility, accessories, clothing, parts, customizing, tourism and workshop equipment on the Koelnmesse exhibition grounds. INTERMOT Cologne extends over approximately 100,000 square metres of exhibition space as well as around 60,000 square metres of outdoor area.
