September 7 2012.

From the 3rd to the 7th of October 2012 the international motorcycle sector will meet at INTERMOT in Cologne. In addition to the exhibitors' presentations in the exhibition halls, a wealth of activities will provide an outstanding programme of events on the 75,000 m² of outdoor space surrounding the leading global trade fair for motorcycles and motorized scooters. The"Night of the Jumps" will take place on 6th October, parallel to INTERMOT Cologne. Along with numerous events throughout the city, it is one of the highlights of the fair.

At "Night of the Jumps" the best riders from the International Freestyle Motocross Federation (IFMXF) will once again compete for World Cup points in the LANXESS Arena. Admission tickets for "Night of the Jumps" are also valid for a one-day admission to INTERMOT — on any day of the fair. The "Night of the Jumps" combines spectacular show entertainment with motocross competition at the highest level. It's a must for passionate bike fans as well as being an exciting and diverse event for anyone interested in sports and action.

A number of aditional events will also be adding to the atmosphere all over the city. For weeks INTERMOT Cologne has been generating excitement and gearing up for the mega-event with special shows at the Colonnade in Cologne's main train station, at the Dumont Carrée, at the Gaffel brewery and at Cologne/Bonn Airport. The ecumenical church service for motorcyclists in Cologne Cathedral will be another highlight, taking place on the morning of 6th October 2012, followed by a convoy through the city to the exhibition centre.
