1. Dual Slalom @ Crankworx Whistler

    To wrap up a perfect MTB festival I competed at Dual Slalom as well. So in total it has been Dual Speed & Style, Pumptrack and Dual Slalom. I had a gnarly crash and broke my front wheel, thanks to the bikestore “Bike Co” in Whistler for repairing it immediately I own you guys a beer 🙂

  2. Twins Women Camp at Flims/ Laax, Switzerland

    Anita and Caro Gehrig are 2 crazy good Enduro girls from Switzerland. They compete at the EWS and have amazing results in the top 5. But they are not only amazing riders, they are the best party buddies, #goodtimes buddies and always in a good mood. THEY ARE MOUNTAINBIKE!

    It’s always amazing to see how they spread the love of Mountainbiking to Ladies at their Ladies Camp. It’s my second year in a row they’ve invited me to guide at the beautiful area of Flims/Laax. In total there were 45 girls taking part. Thanks Twinsimg_0951 for all the good times and challenges. One competition was to take a picture of the “Best view”, my group interpreted it as #pornorama 😀

    Thanks for the invite Ladies, I had a blast!

    On the last weekend of august I jumped off the plane from Whistler and straight into Lenzerheide for Trek Bike Attack. It was my third time competing in the mass downhill race. It’s always a pleasure to ride it even if it means war to shred the 16km downhill, 250 HM uphill as fast as I can with about 30 other girls and 650 other men.

    They have changed the Qualification course this year. Normally it was a bikepark lap but this year we had to race the track to Churwalden with an uphill over about 2mins. It doesn’t sound much to pedal uphill for 2 minutes but these 2 minutes mean death or alive. I almost puked into my helmet hahaha. On raceday I got up at 5am to have a good position on the start line and I finished 7th in the end. I’m super stoked about the result as I don’t ride downhill that much. The day was perfect when my Trek colleague Armin Beeli finished 2nd and Tracy Moseley from Trek Factory Racing 1st.

    Clif Bar Dual Speed & Style @ Crankworx Whistler

    Since I started Dirtjumping I always wanted to compete in Dual Speed and Style and this year I had the opportunity to show what I am capable of.

    The rules are easy: There is a Dual Slalom track with Dirtjumps. The faster and the more sick tricks you do, the better will be your result on the finish line and the better one of 2 competitors will continue to the next round.

    During practice there was another girl from Seattle but unfortunately she didn’t clean the dirt jumps and had to leave the competition. So in the end I was the only girl riding the competition. I didn’t make it into finals against the guys but I enjoyed every second riding the track. I had a blast and so damn hope to shred again next year.

    Thanks Crankworx Whistler for the opportunity to compete, I really appreciate it!
