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!
