it has been a busy 3 weeks for me, going to switzerland twice and austria for the Red Bull 401, Austrian Freeski Open and European Freeski Open!
The Red Bull 401 took place 3 weeks ago in Hoch Ybrig switzerland!
It is a whole different comp then all others, u have a dartboard with all four 1080´s as the bullzeye and then all four 9´s all four 7´s and so on!
U also have 2straight airs and 2switch straight airs!Every trick is worth a different amount of points and u have to get down from 401 to 0 in as less runs as possible, by performing certain tricks, mixed with double grabs, combo graps, inverts and double corks bonuses!
It really is hard to understand but the Red Bull guys did it perfect = )
I ended up in 3rd place behind Jonas Hunziker and Elias Ambuehl!
The comp was a lot of fun, the weather was perfect and the concept legendary.
After switzerland it was about time to go back home and take part in the Austrian Freeski Open!
This year all the athletes gathered in Kaprun!
The location was new and the thoughts were high!
After a good first traing day up on Kitzsteinhorn everybody was ready for the big Finals!
Due to the weather situation the organisators had to do qualifications and finals in one day!
The Strong wind made it hard to get the speed right, and we were only able to hit 2out of 5obstacles! I decided to to something different and nose butterd the kicker besides the canon box, with a nose butter cork 9 and a sw cork 9 on the jump! Unfortunately this was not enough but I ended up sessioning the smaller jup a little more and tried a nose butter cork 12 = )
