FWT Fieberbrunn - 2nd place!!

For the first time a Freeride World Tour event took place in Austria, Fieberbrunn. Organization was perfect and lot of spectators came to watch the competition. Motivated from friends and family who came here, I could ride my line pretty much as planed and got 2nd place - Yeahhhhhhh !!!! Sharing the podium with my friend Mitch Tölderer with a similar choice of line, Stefan Häusl(1.) and Matthias "Hauni" Haunholder(3.) in Ski category made it a perfect "Austrian Freeride day" Congrats to all!!

happy with a good run in the finish

Keep it up!! So stoked...

Specially here in Austria the media presence was insane. Sometimes it was actually not that easy to get everything done, as the main focus should stay on my run but everybody ask you for an interview etc. Nevertheless I really enjoyed that people seemed to be stoked from the show up on the mountain!

Now I am looking foreward to the big final in Verbier which is definitely the highlight in Freeride competitions! The legendary Bec des Rosses is a steep mountain with lots of rocks and so called "no fall zones" - no mistake allowed!
autograph session for next generation of freeriders -the rush didn`t stop, crazy!
