Slopestyle 2005 Weekend

After the friday muni ride with Harry the mood for the weekend was set: Mountain Times! On saturday we headed to Saalbach Hinterglemm where we met Sven for a mountain bike tour. We choose to ride to the Zwölferkogel which was a really tough (power wise) but boring tour. No hops or single trails at all … Due to the weather the Slopestyle was postphoned but at 19:00 Babsi and I had the pleasure to watch Ryan Leech on his trialbike – just amazing.

On sunday is was picture perfect wheater: Babsi and I hoped on our bikes again and rode a short biketour, then I challenged myself with the muni at the Trialparcour in Hinterglemm and at 12:30 the Slopestyle Finals 2005 started. It was just a wicked thing to see the riders dropping 8m, rushing over the wallrides and doing incredible dirtjumps (backloops, tailwhips, 360°, …). Final it was Darren Barenclaw who won the event with an astonishing ride.

Of course I shot some photos for you of the trialshow, the trialparcour and the Slopestyle


Pfingsttrip to Slovenia & Croatia

Pfingsten arrived and Babsi and I had to go on another trip. Due to some articles & guidebooks we decided to explore the rivers of Slovenia and Croatia – except the well known Soca. We started in the region of Bled, continued on to the slovenian Krka and there we had an accident that changed the hole trip: someone broke into our car.

Due to that we drove all the way to the croatian island Cres (fighting hail & snow with the heather and an always open – non-existing – window). There we found some nice mountainbiking, a very refreshing sea and a campsite that was the perfect muni-trailparcour.

Enough of the introduction – photos are just one click away or if you want to know some details ….

Zappler – the sport video with a comic touch

ZapplerI’m proud to present my new video „Zappler“- I tried to archive the effect of a „comic-video“ with sporty content. Hope you like it! – Now just watch Riki, Moose, Babsi and me zappeling around … wmv file (6mb)

Some background infos: The fonts are Enchilada and Badaboom from Dafont (Comic section), the music is from Crazy Q and the video is done with AfterEffects. For the black’n’white look I used the Threshold filter (in combination with Levesl and Curves) and the rest is simple aftereffecting …

Mallorca – mountainbiking on an island

8304Spring time means travel time – this year Michi, Gina and I headed to the mediterranean island Mallorca. While the villages where supertourisic we really enjoyed the mountainbiken (and municycling). High mountains (up to 1400m), lonesome beaches and dangerous dogs are just a view things you will discover there.

If you want to go there, then first have a look at the photos

MUnicycling the Sonnleitn in snowy conditions

Friday afternoon was picture-perfect weather so I asked Mum if she could shuttle me up to the Erentrudisalm for a snowride on my MUni. It worked out perfectly. It’s a constant challenge to stay on the path, ‚coz if you leave the path … crash time … but mostly it’s just superfun

On the next day it was perfect weather again. So I asked Babsi if she could make some videos and photos of the riding andhere a some shots of it …
The videofootage will be a part of the upcoming „Tracks“


Wintertrip to Silver Star 2005

We started the snowboarding season with an awesome weekend up on Mount Washington in early January. It was snowing in Victoria and all the way up there. The drive was a nightmare and took about 5 hours, but we got rewarded with lots of fresh powder on that day and more snow overnight leading to a sunny powder day on Sunday. Last week we were  headed for more boarding and fun in the snow together with a great bunch of friends from last years trip to Sun Peaks. This year we were going to check out Silver Star. Read on to find out more and don’t forget to check out some of the photos.

updated: I added 4 new photos from the friday session …

Yesterday was another boogieday – and Hiasi (from Soulboater) made some photos of me.
… and I can tell you – I wasn’t flushed after the tricks you can see by a simple click here …


Testing the EOS 300D …

Armin borrowed me his SLR camera – the Canon EOS 300D and of course Babsi and I tested it a little bit.

OK – the camera is really cool to handle and adjustable to every situtation (I really like the aperature and the timed mode) but it has one disadvantage: it’s to slow for sporty shots … we only got 3 shots from the big hop … just one in the air …
Ok, more at the photos …


Tere, Tallinn – Estland/Eesti

Thanks to Miles&More Babsi and I thought about an autuum trip – Ireland, Spain and the Baltics where the favourite canditates. Finally we settled on Tallinn – the capital of Estland. During our time there we explored Tallinn with its amazing medival buildings, the Kohvik (Cafes) and the modern town. The city itself was also an amazing municycle terrain.

Addionally we drove to the Lahemaa Nationalpark. Beautiful mushroom woods, bogs and the sea – everything the nature lover needs for a perfect day. Except the signs of lynx, bears and moose and the tree, which made us a little bit nervous. Ok – enough – I hope you want to see the pictures.

On Saturday the MUnicycle article from Manu was printed in the Salzburger Nachrichten featuring some statements from me and a photos of Moose and one of me – the article is of course online for you :)
New: Manu’s article was again printed in the Berchtesgadener Anzeiger

After reading the article it was time to switch to two wheels – Mountainbiking in the Bikeworld Leogang was our aim on sunday. Sadly I crashed on the 2nd run and got a bruise on the shoulder (Prellung der Schulter) – so I made some photos from Anschi and Pat at the Northshore structures …
