Off what? I guess off season but not without my bike

 

It was great season for me I really can’t complain. I ended up at the 4x Pro Tour on the first spot and also in the UCI World raking I am number one. Number one of the World sounds good for me and makes me very proud. Lots of great moments, no big crashes, no hospital nights, no tears, no mechanicals – nearly just amazing moments on the podium, on the track, surrounded by nice persons and nearly all the time nice weather. Maybe I just flows because I take it easier, was more relaxed, improved and concentrated more on my weak points, had good sponsors behind me and of course the great support from my boyfriend.

I am very thankful for this and I don’t forget my lows and know exactly how quickly it can change and from one second to the other you feel like loosing “all” just by one mistake.

Apart from my successful racing season I had also the chance to give something back to my sport threw my race coaching camp in Saalbach. That was very special for me and I will sure repeat it next year – same event / same place. So girls stay tuned and don’t miss the registration, because I think I will limit it to just 3-4 girls in my race group, because with more I would not be able to concentrate on each.

After the World camps I went straight to the Eurobike and had some sponsor meetings. I have some changes, the main one is that it is over with Alutech Cycles. I have some good deals in mind but nothing decided yet.  What is sure is that I stay with Troy Lee Designs, Go Pro, SP Gadgets, Dr. Martins Coco Juice, Baby-G, Spy, Iriedaily, Six Pack Racing, Maxxis and R.S.P.

At the moment I swapped my 4X bike for a brand new DK Elite Race BMX thanks to Frencys distribution.  I thought I should try something old/new to improve my riding skills and high lows/ cut in/ passing and my elbow out battling skills. And it is so fast…sometimes to fast for me 🙂 I really enjoying it. I will see what it brings for next year I am sure it will help me for 4X. Next week I will swap again to my big bike because the DH trails in Portugal are calling. Yeah can’t wait

So see you on the BMX track or in Portugal.
