Live

Back on my Blog.. welcome everybody

After the BMX WorldCup in Madrid, I spent four more days in Spain for a photoshoot with my new Nicolai BMXTB 4cross bike. Together with Roger Rinderknecht and photographer Hoshi Yoshida we drove down to Barcelona.
First spot was "La Poma bikepark" a really nice park where you can find a lot of different challanges.. nice pumptrack, dirtjumps, 4cross Track, FoamPit and all of that with sea view! Life can be sooo good!
We checked 3 more secret spots for some good riding, shooting and by the way testing my 4cross Baby the first time.. Feels great and i can't wait until the first 4cross Worldcup in 3 weeks!

Came back Thursday put my stuff into the car and then hit the road for de first two bmx Euro rounds of 2010. I felt good and motivated, bad weather worked out in Phoenix already.. so the rain all weekend wasn't the point. Dissapointing results with a 1/4 saturday and a crash in 1/8's for sunday.
Means to me, forget this weekend and look forward!

The tuesday after the race i took a ligament injury in my right foot, witch held me away from training this week. Lucky me, it's not that bad and i think i can start training again this week!

a lot going on!!

Welcome back on my blog page!

I'm sorry for the update stop. Just didn't find the time..
So many things were going on during the last two weeks, but i'd like to start with this weekend at the BMX SX WorldCup in Madrid.

After we saw the track i was really happy to see this *Box-Jump* looked so good i was ready to get on the track!!
Practise one showed us that the track was still kind a soft and sticky, so it was even harder to handle it.. My training went really good, no crashes and a lot of confidence for the race day.
My Time-Trial run wasn't perfect, anyway i got 24th place out of 130 riders and was happy with that!
After a good lunch i made my way back to the arena and saw all these people in front of the entrance, so good to see about 2000 people waiting for your race xD

Race started good for me and Switzerland, i got second behind Lapraz.
I did some pretty good moves on second straight witch helped me to get a third and fourth place in the other motos!

Quarter was stacked and i had the outside lane, was good to stay away from trouble and with a high low move i came into the fourth place.. SEMI FINAL what a race for me so far!
That was the high goal i set myself and i reached it so i was really pumped!!
Semi was last station for me, again in the outside line but the door wasn't open for me..

Semi starting list..


Great weekend again after the one in Pheonix with a AA Elite semi and podium, now some big UCI points for the ranking!!

At the moment i'm in Barcelona for some 4cross shooting action until thursday and then pretty much directly to Besancon for the first european BMX round.

stay tuned

season is ON

Wuuuhaaa today was a really big pro race going on at the ABA/ UCI Winternationals in Phoenix AZ.
Everybody showed up out here in the desert, to pull on the good track here!
After friday practise they changed the prosection quite a bit and today was really cool!

Felt pretty good at the Gate with all of these big names around!
Got a second place to start in to the race whitch motivated me a lot, came up with a sixth and a fourth it was tight but i made it to the quarters. Motos here are a bit different than in Europe, you race against different people in every moto!

one of the motos.. as you can see, it was alredy going fast there!






Quarters came up in the hot sun, didn't come out of the gate that good but was able to stay away from small mess in the first corner. Then stayed in fifth behind Bubba Harris until third corner, where we both passed the other guy.. made it into the semi and was really happy with that!




the sheet told me it will need a perfect run go get thru this one.. 4 former WorldChampions at the Gate!





Between Kyle Bennet and Maris Stromberg i had a pretty good gate and was able to get into the pack in the first corner.. came out 5th behind Khalen Young, tried to make a move in the third corner.
But in the end it was a 5th Place in semi, I'm happy with this first race of the season!
Stay tuned for more news, hopefully it doesn't rain to much tomorrow!

He had to catch the plane already Saturday night after just 10 days.. i was laughing about him before i realized that my trip is over in 12 days aswell! Back to Switzerland with hopefully nice and warm spring conditions. Let the season begin!

10 days with Hubster means 10 days with a well loaded schedule nothing about chilling on the bed between two sessions haha but it was a great week.. In the end of the week we have been at the Supercross BMX Headquarter what reminds me to my new waiting Nicolai frames at home.. have a look to the sick design!

There is a lot of new stuff waiting at home, here an appertizer from the new design of my SRSuntour Axon Fork with the insaine QLoc 15mm system, you want more infos about that? Visit www.srsuntour-cycling.com











Back to the last few days.. some funny photos with Hubster in the Wax-Museum in Hollywood and a lot of riding while the weather was perfect with all the girls came out and hanging on the beach... that's how i like to do my sprint session!


Lucky me the following didn't happen in front of them, today during a sprint session i have broken my chain.. twice never seen this before haha, i didn't hurt just fell over the bar.. could have end up way worse!

Hello everybody... after a break the last month. I'm back on my BLOG.

Since one week I'm staying in Huntington Beach CA, one of the best places on earth!
After a couple of problems to rent a car, because I'm not 21 yet, I finally got a nice KIA.
One day later he was not longer the NICE KIA, after a hard impact of a big Pickup witch came out of a parking space backwards.. take a look!



That was just in front of my appartement, a really American Motel with a nice 1 Bed Studio..



Wednesday was the first time i saw the sheep hills trail spot after 2 years, and the spot is awesome.. bigger then ever an great fun to ride!




Pic was done by Adrian Kiener who stays here for 6 months... I'm sure at 5th of March I'll hate him HAHA.. when i have to go back!

Saturday night we have been at the AMA Supercross race, 45'000 spectators in the stadium and a great show from James Stewart and Dungey... we will be there for the next round in LA aswell! Wont miss that!!!
