My training for the season went great. The winter didn’t really find its way to my area so it was dry and warm, so would I have wanted more? hmm maybe no crashing would have been perfect…I spent many hours on my new DH bike the mmBOB and the 4x Hardtail GO both from Moro. Apart from that I left the Team for doing my own thing again I had some sponsor changings so I am riding with Qloom clothes, Manitou forks and rear shock, Hayes brakes, Sun Ringle wheels, Answer handlbars and stems. The other sponsor stayed same, Michelin tires, San Marco saddles, Acros headsets and new now seatposts, Urbantool bags, Spy sunglasses and goggles, Iriedaily casual clothes, go pro helmet cams and Ciclopia the bike shop which supports me a lot. I felt great and fit like never before (thanks to the fitness center Galaxy). Yes so super motivated and fit was keen do go wild…okay not super wild but anyway I felt good on my bike. But all ended quick in Kalnica a bike park in Slovakia. I can just remember to wave to Martin and the next thing which a I can remember is to wake up in the hospital on monday morning. I got told I crashed directly on my forehead, no arms stop the impact. The result was I had a little bruise in my head, memory loss, big headache, a broken metacarpal bone and a broken helmet and goggles. I had to stay 8 days in hospital just to make sure the blood spot is getting smaller in my brain. And so it did. Luckily I was allowed to leave and didn’t have to operate my hand. Back home now I can’t await to ride again.But I will not get bored I have always to do many things…. and i hope i will be ready for the nigh sprint at the Gadasee festival in Italy.. i will see. Fingers cross.
