So finally I relaunched my new website. In the world of tablets, smart phones and the social media overkill it was necessary.
What have happened since new years. Quite a lot.
I have some sponsor changes and some totally new sponsors. I left the Hayes Group or more they had to leave me. So I have now e*thirteen wheels, cranks and chain guides for my DH Bike. I have also a new SIXPACK – RACING cockpit new stem, new bright neon yellow handle bars and new grips – actually my favorite once – I like it thin. I also left Michelin and riding now Maxxis tires. I ride now for BABY- G the watch company and Troy Lee Designs.
I stil with Alutech, Acros, DIRTY, R.S.P. , Carbocage, Iriedaily, Dr. Martins Coco Juice, SPY Optics and Giro Shoes.
I am also still with Alutech Cycles, but they changed the team members so Michèle Quint is riding now with me and we are the women team from Alutech called NIVA . I didn’t know Michèle very much, just from seeing on festivals. So I travelled with my boyfriend and another friend to Portugal to take part at her Surfing / Biking camp. So I could get to know her better and see how we come along with each other. That was very important for me because after some disillusioning experiences with some other riders I am became very careful with whom I work together and plan things. I have learned at the end everyone looks after themselves first.
But to sum it up I am very happy to have her as a team maid and the 2 weeks proved that we on the same vibes. I had great week so much laughing, riding and surfing together. The tracks were nice we had a very helpful and funny driver / guide. We rode in San Miguel Bike park (near Faro) and also in in the mountains of Monchique. The surf house was nice , just a little bit crowded but nice.
For FULL HD you have to watch in on vimeo directly.
And after my nice holiday I had some photoshoot going in on for Shimano. Can’t really say much about it – It was just great – nice crew- nice weather – nice hotels- good food. okay not so much riding but still wonderful to be in the mountains with shorts.
In the mean time until my first race in Winterberg (Ger). Until this I have to do my homework like every year. Gates, Sprints, Gym, Jumping and getting better and faster.
see you on the track Helene
