together with keano, we put 92 kg on the scale. i already ordered a new fridge.......

avalanche airbag system

freeriding is a beautiful sport, but avalanche danger a threat we cannot deny and i have had more than one close call in my life on the mountains.
the abs avalanche airbag has become a standard equipment without which i do not venture out into the powder fields of this planet any more.
aside from avoiding avalanches & carrying a transceiver, this is simply the best lifesaving tool for the worst case scenario - staying at the top means staying alive.

find out all about the abs on www.abs-airbag.com

greatest ever freeride event in austria!

fieberbrunn saw the greatest ever freeride event in austria with 3.000 spectators and an amazing show on the mountain.
i went to party until 5 in the morning to celebrate my second place, after having a weird experience before the start. i had a bad gut feeling about the dangers in my line a changed it just before the start, which i never ever do usually. but it paid of......
i am now going into the the final next week in verbier on 3rd place in the overall.
unfortunately the title is out of reach, but 2nd is still possible.

...i did it again!

....no not winning but a stupid small mistake, in this case putting my ass in the snow for a moment und so kicking myself off the podium of the freeride festival organized by eric themel happening yesterday in the montafon area. anyway, after being down with the flue and fever for 3 days vefore the event i was happy i could ride at all.
a cool event, no points pressure since it is not part of the freerid eworld qualifier tour.
congrats to chris schnabel, austrian fwt-rookie, to his victory!

black diamond bigmountain hochfügen last weekend

i was fully motivated for this event, and despite -28 degree celsius at the start gate and 30 km/h wind it was a great weekend!
great was also my run, until i kind of crashed in the runout on the way to the finish line. pretty angry at myself at first i was happy afterwards, when i found out i was still in 3rd place. always great to be on the podium!
check out my run HERE  (thanks to www.linehunters.com), and alsothe HIGHLIGHTS of the event.
plus the tv show broadcasted on austrian television is HERE.

freeride world tour stops no 2 and 3

freeride word tour stops nr. 2 and 3 happend this week in chamonix and courmayeur.
i took nina and keano along and it was really fun to have both of them around during the comps.
in cham, i was unlucky to have very flat light during my run, making it really hard to charge. nevertheless, with a fluid line i scored a 5th place.
in courmayeur, conditions wer finally really good and so was my motivation. but i took not enough risk in the good conditions, whereas others charged more and so a 7th place was a bit disappointing. should have known better.
find below a few impressions from the week...

a big drop & a low score...

the competition in revelstoke happened last saturday in really good snow conditions on the mack face. a pretty cool venue, fun to ro ride but super short. like always on short faces i had troubles finding the kind of challenge that puts me into competition mode, i simply am and will alwayas be a big mountain rider and not a minigolf-face jibber.....

so i decieded to go for a big drop towards the end of my line to spice things up a little, but still could not focus the way i am used to for a comp at the start gate. the super flat light did not help to motivate me either, and i felt the result straight away, as i sat on my ass hardly being out of the start gate. the big drop afterwards was fine...
