Yesterday we didn’t have any Internet so I couldn’t fix any update but I’ll give you one now.
We arrived here in Dachstein yesterday in the morning. We went pretty early from Oberammergau and met up with Andi Aurhammer on Nitro and Xavier Hoffman. After that we drove to Dachstein and of course we went for the slope when we came here. The weather was really good and it was pretty much snow so we were stoked! I was a little bit scared about the knee but everything turned out good and I didn’t have any pain at all or maybe just a little bit but that didn’t matter because I was having so much fun with everybody!
But we were just crusing around in the slopes hitting some boxes and the small jumps, fun stuff for sure!
After some hours of riding we went down to our apartment and waited for the ridersmeeting.
At the meeting they told us that there would be two heats with 40 riders in each. That was pretty tough because only 6 riders from each heat got through to the finals. And the funny thing was that all the swedish and norweigan riders was in the same heat.
So today when we went up we were so stoked but on the top of the mountain it was shitty weather so you couldn’t see anything and it was windy and everybody had some problems with the speed.
On the qualification you had 2 runs and the best one counts. The level wasn’t that big becuase of the weather. It was hard to get over the jumps and stuff like that but after a while and when the second run started it turned out really good and the level got much higher!
And the setup was really good. First it was a flat down box into a kicker line with 3 jumps, not the biggest jumps but they were fun. After the jumps it was a small wallride. I really liked the setup.
And yeah, I made it through to the finals taking the 4th position in the qualis so I was so stoked on that. Gjermund Braathen won the qualification, super sick riding! Also Tobbe Karlsson, Joachim Krogstie and Torgeir Bergrem made it through. Awesome!
Tomorrow it’s time for the finals and I’m looking forward to it and I think it’s going to be so much fun. The weather seems to be better tomorrow as well.
Going to sleep now because I’m so tired and I’m going up early tomorrow.
