Competition Fieberbrunn

Friday I drove to Fieberbrunn and slept with the other riders in a barrack. Saturday morning we stood up at 5:00 h. and got up the mountain at 6:00 h. to watch the face. It looked match better then a week before but still not easy because some parts had lots of snow, some parts not at all.

I was the first starter from the boys, I dropped in the end jumped a cliff into a steep couloir. I had all the time every cliff in my head so I could hide for an avalanche if there would come one. Under me there was a cliff over 25 meter cliff not possible to jump. While riding the steep part of the mountain a small avalanche broke, because the speed I had I could manage to get out and jumped a double out of the no fall zone. Further down I my run was not good, I felt on the last very small cliff because I landed a meter to far where the landing was hard and quid flat.

Too bad, I did not plan to jump this cliff and made the bad decision to jump it while I was riding. Because of this jump I lose all the points I needed to ride Verbier and participate next year again in the FWT.

I had not a very good competition season, sometimes bad luck and I made some mistakes. But I showed also some nice lines and some very good technical riding I think. I will keep on, progress my freeriding, filming photo shooting some more competitions and sharing my passion by guiding.

I’m proud on my friend Nadine Wallner, she was already first place overall and she won the comp in Fieberbrunn. She is almost neighbours and she was my travel buddy during the comps.  Here a picture of my guests, the 4 winners in Fieberbrunn (right Nadine)
