Wildcard

A couple of days ago I got a surprising call. It was one of the organizers of the Freeride World Tour event in Fieberbrunn, Austria, that offered me a wildcard to the contest! I was thrilled of course and immediately said yes. It’s held this upcoming weekend and it is streamed live at www.freerideworldtour.com. I’m trying to see this as a good practice for next year’s FWT, not putting too much pressure on myself to perform. However, as the difference in terms of media, spectators etc. is quite big compered to the qualifier tour I suspect I’ll feel a bit more nervous than usual anyways.

This is the teaser for the event.

Apart from the comp in itself I’m very much looking forward to seeing some friends that I haven’t seen in a while. Christine, Pia and Anne-May among others. See you guys tomorrow!

This is the venue we’re gonna ski on Saturday.

I haven’t been skiing much this last week. Instead I booked a flight to Stockholm over the weekend to spend some time with my family that I haven’t seen since November. It’s not very often my whole family is in Stockholm but this time I got to see everyone.

Now it’s time to start packing again. Don’t think I’ve spent more than three nights in a row at home since mid January. But starting next week I will as the location for the Peak Performance winter shoot is… Engelberg!
