Red Bull "Nanshan Open" 2011 in China

Hey Boys & Girls

last week i went to China for the 9th annual Red Bull Nanshan Open.
i was super excited because i had never been to China before .. :D
we arrived in Beijing and checked in to the Hilton. the plan was to get some sightseeing done on the next day and then head out to Nanshan. which is 80 k´s away from Beijing

there you can see me in front of the Entrance to the forbidden city..
the tiananmen Square, which is ocated in front of it, is sooo huge u can fit 10 million people on to it.

oh i nearly forgott the super delicious dinner in the first night.. it was soo good

and some more chinese style culture.. one of the big houses next to the Tiananmen Square..

after the Sightseing we headed to the nanshan resort.
there was a day of training before the qualification and it seemed that there is always some kind of breeze in the resort and i had a hard time already clearing the jumps.
on the quali day the conditions where a bit better but i had not my best day and came short in the training and brused my heel.
i still did the qualis but unlucky did not really put a good enough run down..

all in all i am still super stoked i went to china and i decided to go there again if i have another chance and try better..
thx to Steve, Ollie and the other guys and girls which made that happen and gave us a super nice time ..

O´Neill Evolution Pro 2011

Hey Boys & Girls

3 days ago we arrived in Davos for the O´Neill Evolution Pro.
We are a big crew this year. Birgit Rofner, Julia Piaceska, Elena Könz, Michael Stanschitz, Roger Schuler and myself are here to try our luck in the Qualis.
the last two days was training for our Slopestyle qualification and i have to say the Kicker set up is way bether then last years. just for the fact that they did not make that small little first jump again.
the main kicker itself is really although it has a little steept take off and we had to get used to it.

Tomorrow is our quali and i hope it is gonna be a good day for us. 5 out of 40 men will qualify fromn one heat so it is gonna be a really hard call.
but lets see. i will get back to you after the qualis.
enjoy the snow wherever you guys are.

greets from us
