Hexenrennen, IGSA-Regional-Cup
19.-21. Mai 2006
Thale, Roßtrappe im Harz


We leave Zurich at 20:00 on Thursday, 18 may, arrive in Thale/germany at 12:00 on friday, really long away, 800 km from Zurich, we went with Samy's Yellow van(Samy Cantieni). After this long way I was very tired.

When we arrived everybody was ready to ride, they already had made a run. As of custom I was to say hi for my friends, fora long time i have not seen my friends almost for one year, after to say hi, changed my clothes really fast for riding. The road has 3km in Thale, really good surface for riding. Thale wasn't very technique, only one good turn for left, in this turn you need foot break little bit, but the rest of the road is only speed position, go fast many S's.

My training

Funny lifts

The legs were very tired, long time in the same position, speed position.
After the first run for recognition that the game start and you can analyze where can go fast or where need to brake more.
The high speed in my GPS 72km/h.
After three runs it started raining, I don’t do downhill stand-up in the rain, I collected my equipment put in the bag and went to talk with my friends.

Saturday starts really nice, beautiful sunshine, after great breakfast go to skateboard yeahhh! first one run for warm up, after start the qualification. The organization of the event in Thale tried to make the qualifications in three guys together. Big problem with the radios, no work, without the functioning of the radios it was impossible to make the championship, in the afternoon start rain again.
My first time trail or qualification was really funny, i draft the other Germany guy, I never did qualification together with other guys.
