Last year I went on a 4 week trip to ride all across Europe, which took me to Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy and France. An awesome trip which is now captured in a 5:30 minute video.
Last summer I traveled to the US for the first time, to participate in one of the world’s best downhill races; Maryhill – Festival on Speed. And just for the fun of it I traveled to Canada as well for Whistler Longboard Festival.
I wrote this post to explain the differences between street luge and ice luge. Before I started with ice luge, I thought they were very similar, but I found out there’s a world of difference between them.
Pictures from my training week in Oberhof, Germany. This track was ‘the answer’ to Königssee. Back then, the East-Germans wanted something like Königssee, so they built this track.
I did a lot of runs from the junior start at the luge track in Oberhof, but I wasn’t able to nail corner #13. Therefor I only did one cam run, the very last.
These are photos taken during the FIL ITW (International Training Week) in Königssee, Germany. This track is the first artificial track that was built. Kind of cool to ride it.
I went up to the ladies start and did a few kick ass runs. I recorded the last of ’em.
This is the video which is shot by the cameras along the track. This is the same run as the run in the post before this one.
These are some photos I took in the second training week in Sigulda, Latvia.
