The Blitz

There I go. A few weeks ago, I picked up my Deep The Blitz frame which is super cool to ride. It feels great and pretty dynamic! I hope it takes me far enough with my riding skills. :)

Thanks a lot to Matti!

Flatland BBQ Jam

Last Saturday was the first Flatland Jam ever since a long time, here in Berlin. The location was perfect and pretty much in the center of Berlin there was a huge hockey field. The ground was a little slippery but it was great to see that so many Flatland rider showed up. There was also a trick contest and a bbq as the name of the jam can tell. ;) It was a super chilled day with a dope party at the cassiopeia right after.
Thanks alot to Christian who organized this event pretty well and the riders who showed up! I think we should repeat this event a little more often now! :)

BMX Masters 2011

Last week I went to the BMX Masters 2011 in Cologne. It's like an old routine going to that contest and everything is still super spontaneous! ;)
After a 10 hours trip we finally arrived in Cologne, just missing the Flatland pro qualification. But it was fun anyways walking around in the Jugendpark, having some beer and a hotel booking action trip. So I ended up sleeping and resting in a hotel before the contest on Saturday. It was funny, during breakfast I met my friends from Austria not knowing in which hotel there are gonna stay. Later at the park I rode a little, dealing with the ground which was still good to ride! We ended up jamming during the girls contest which was so much fun! After we finished I was all motivated going back to my home spot but I knew that it's going to be a chilled weekend first with watching a lot of BMX. When the dirt finals were done and the fireworks began to color the sky we headed to the Gloria club. It was a good party ... well as far as I can remember.
I woke up in the bus all alone but Ali came back at 10 in the morning, so we headed back to the Jugendpark. There was still a lot of chilling, sleeping at the beach and watching the Flatland Master Finals. After the ceremony we were on the way back to Berlin which was a super fun and chilled trip. As usual I got home at 4 am all tired and exhausted getting ready for university exams ...

All in all it was a great weekend, I got 2nd place, met a lot of old and new friends and I am all motivated to ride and progress. Woohoo!

Cologne here I come ...

... somehow.
The BMX Masters are in 2 weeks but I'm not sure how to get there yet. But I guess I will find an opportunity. ;) It's cool to see more and more girls that compete there every year. I hope there are going to be more Flatland riding girls soon! So .... see you there I guess! This is going to be another fun trip with lots of memories! YEAH!

Game of Skills, Vienna

Last weekend I took a spontaneous trip to Vienna again. This time for the second round of the Game of Skills Contest. I arrived Friday afternoon being all lost in Vienna. My friend Stephi picked me up and took me to the Heldenplatz later where we already met a few Flatland Rider. An hour and a flat tire later we left to get some food and a funny little parking lot session.
The next day I got to the Contest area early but unfortunately the contest started 3 hours later than expected. I messed up my run but I enjoyed all the other riders who were riding the contest. All in all the contest was really well organized by Michael Sommer. Lots of great riders were there and the party was fun, even if there weren't a lot of people. During the next morning global flat Martin, Sascha, the Canadian JF and me hit the road back to Germany. I got home all tired Sunday evening. But as always super motivated!

Thanks alot to everybody who helped me out during the fun weekend trip!

Vienna in April

This week I was in Vienna, mainly for some sightseeing with my best friend. But a trip without my bike is unimaginable for me, so I took it with me to ride in that lovely city. Sadly there was just one day where it was possible to ride some Flatland. So I met with my very good friend Stephi and her boyfriend to ride in a small skatepark with a pretty sweet flat area beside it. Some breathing issues made it hard for me to ride but I mastered some tricks and was alright, even if I was super tired of so much sight seeing. Right after we chilled at the Donau with some ice cream and beer and hit a party boad with a dope life band.

The trip was super cool, thanks a lot to Reile, Stephi and Roman for a great time in Austria! :)

Doing some tricks.

Looking super retarted while opening some German candy during a break from riding, haha!

On the way back to the hostel, done with riding for the day and a super cool view of some mountains.

Sightseeing in Schönbrunn which has a pretty nice backyard and fountains.

PSC Contest

Last weekend I went to the Passion Sports Convention in Bremen. Deep BMX organized a contest which was pretty convenient for me. So I had a ride to Bremen with a part of the Deep Team. We hit the road on Friday which was pretty chilled. Arriving at 7 pm in Bremen, we went straight to the event place and helped a little with the contest area. The day ended with 10 huge pizzas and a relaxing evening.
During the next morning we went to the Sports Convention to get registered. But first Adam Kun and me were looking for a cash machine. Other than that we couldn't have paid our registration fee. ;) So after getting to the contest place I practiced a little and was waiting till the contest started. Unfortunately the ground was a bit too slippery so I couldn't pull any of my combos. This bummed me out a little but at least I gained some more contest experience.
The day ended with qualification runs, waiting for some results (I placed 14th.), more pizza and some beer with the guys. There was also a party right at the event place so everybody went to it. The party was so lame, that a few flatland guys did a show there which was really entertaining!
Right after that night, the Sunday was chilled with enjoying the Flatland finals, watching the deep stand, cleaning and removing the contest area. About 9 pm we finally drove back to Berlin. I got home at 2 am in the morning all motivated.
Can not wait for the next Contest right there! The rider were cool and the contest was well organized. Good job Deep team! :)

Too many bmxalot sticker, they put them on my glasses aswell

Some Riding

The month February wasn't as good as I expected. I was sick three times and could not enjoy riding as much as I wanted to, sadly! Now I'm doing better again, no fever, no headaches and no more sore throats. I hope this condition stays a while! ;)
However there were days where I was alone at the ICC and took footage of a tiny combo, which I never filmed before. There you go! I hope for more riding days in March! I expect great things! :)

I am super stoked that I'm off university for 6 weeks. Exams are done, I am exhausted but this means I have a lot of time spending on my bike! I'm going to ride a lot, chilling in my hometown and I might go to Bremen for the Passion Sports Convention Contest.

frenchman in town

Yesterday, Alex Jumelin came to ride at the ICC, since I've told him that this is a pretty cool underground spot in Berlin. I got sick the day before and was thinking to stay home since I felt like crap. But for some reason I needed to ride anyways and was on my way to the ICC. I met Krisitan, Michi and of course Alex. Riding for 15 min was feeling like i ran a marathon or that somebody stabbed my lungs.
Anyways I pulled a few things but was pretty happy so be back in my bed two hours later. It was a pretty sweet session yesterday, also motivating! Can't wait to get well and riiiiide. :)

3. January 2011

I just found out that someone posted my video on a russian bmx portal. It's weird cause I don't understand anything in Russian. That's why i asked a friend of mine to translate which was pretty funny!
So here is the second video with a little change. Check it out if you didn't find it on the internet yet! :)
Other than that, it's my birthday today which I enjoyed with some riding! Later!
