FWT Engadin - St.Moritz

2. Mitch Tölderer, 1. Matt Annetts, 3. Flo Orley

Got 4th place in the 2nd stop of the Freeride World Tour, which took place at the Corvatsch north face close to St. Moritz, Switzerland. It`s hard to tell how much this means to me, as after my injury last spring I still have to be very carefull and take it pretty easy. I`m not able to go for big drops, but nevertheless I scoped a line with some nice smaller size drops and a steep technical part in the middle. I could ride the line super clean, fast and it was just a good feeling riding down the face because snow conditions this time were really good! Super happy!!

Finally just 0,2 points made the difference to podium. Beside the main judging there was also a VIP Judging consisting of Björn Dunkerbeck, Ueli Kestenholz, Tanja Frieden and Freddy Nock who judged me 2nd place. Yeahh!!

Andi: "That was awesome...!!" first words he said in the finish... crazy Americans ;)

The day after competition "The Austrians" went up the the Julier pass for a nice hike. The RedBull/ Servus TV joined us and we got some good footage for their 9x 26min TV show, starting soon!! The focus of corse in on the Tour and the Austrians, who are competing. Beside it shows, how we prepare for the contest, how to choose the line, how much fun we have... and whatever else we do - Harry and Stefan are always around to document what is happening.

Yesterday I went to Salzburg to the RedBull/ Servus TV studio. Pristach Matthias(organizer of the 4* FWQ Hochfügen) and me were invited to a studio talk. It was really fun and interesting there, we looked really way better with makeup :)
It was LIVE on Air - link to the show soon, as it`s not online yet.
