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!
