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 ….

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“

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 …

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 …
