Chris Pfeiffer in action...

BMW rider, 35-year-old Chris Pfeiffer has won the first Indoor Streetbike Freestyle World Championship during an event conducted at the Swiss-Moto Motorcycle, Scooter and Tuning Exhibition in Zurich.

Riding a BMW F800 as usual, Pfeiffer competed against 16 other riders, coming from nine countries, and won every single round on his way to winning the championship! Former World Stunt Riding Champion,
AC Farias from Brazil took second place, while Joni Tammela from Finland took third.

Said Pfeiffer, “I have to say that I wasn't expecting to find such a high calibre of riders capable of performing in such a limited space. The evolution of the riders in terms of their technical abilities is skyrocketing. We had 16 top riders from the US and all parts of Europe, and none of them had any problems in performing in the available space, which was only 54x15 metres! Tricks that were considered almost impossible just a short time ago have now become standard for many of the top athletes.”
