About this rider

Sometimes you’re born with FMX running through your veins and that was certainly the case for Hannes and living out in the middle of nowhere in a place called Niederola was the perfect training ground for the German prodigy.

After starting freestyle in 2001 Hannes turned pro in 2007 and immediately gained attention with a win in the Geman FMX Championships. Soon after his victory he would land his first backflip to dirt and would begin riding at events throughout Germany and Western Europe. After defending his crown in 2008 and 2009, Hannes would finally land the tour contract at NIGHT of the JUMPs and ended his first year on the world tour in a promising 9th position.

Now a regular fixture at NIGHT of the JUMPs and with commitments at Nitro Circus among other freestyle shows Hannes is busy riding in an attempt to make a push for World Championship glory.
