hiking new lines

The FreerideWorldTour starts right now with its first event in Revelstoke, Canada. Due to bad visibility and snowfall the contest is postponed till friday most probably. Check www.freerideworldtour for live stream, like all upcoming FWT stops this year. Good luck to all riders for the "MacDaddy" face, a venue that looks really great!

Unfortunately I didn`t go there this time because of an old injury that hurts again quite often. Luckily I still manage to ride a lot, but it needs patience, physio and quite a few kilometres on my hometrainer after riding in order to get the pain out of my foot. So I still do not feel hundert percent fit to compete, especially if there would be three FWT events in a row - Revelstoke/ CAN, Courmayeur/ ITA and Chamonix/ FRA. That`s why I took the desicion not to compete in Canada, but starting the second event. Courmayeur seems to be a good place for me anyway, as I got second place in 2012...

In the mean time I enjoy good days with new lines in the tyrolean alps, do physio and work on getting stronger. Togehter with Johannes Hoffmann I started to shoot some lines for the new film project we have, after the great success with "Time for the whiteroom" last year. See some impressions from the last hike here:
