Filming and the X-Over Ride Comp

Hey again,
I had an awesome time on the mountains the last two weeks!! I never felt that safe on my skis before and I think that I improved my riding a lot.
After my 3rd place finish in Kappl, I decided to spend two days in Serfaus filming with the QParks guys for a short freeride clip. I had a very good time there and I think we captured some really good moments, despite the fact that we did not have a lot of time.

just watch it ;)

Feel Free Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis: Freeski Powder Days - 19.03.2013 from QParks on Vimeo.

After two great days, I was back in Salzburg to prepare for the 3* X-Over Ride comp at the Kitzsteinhorn.
I arrived in Kaprun on Friday and enjoyed an awesome powder day with my friends Bastl Fischer, Jochen Mesle, and Mario Höltl.
The next day the comp was on. The upper section looked pretty scatchy and I decided to do my run without tricks. Finally, I ended up 8th...
I landed in a bombhole on the first cliff; therefore I did a backslap (slapped my back into the snow), but the middle cliff and my final cliff went very well.
I was not super happy with this result, but it was a good day and I had fun.
Congratulations to my friend Jochen Mesle, who won the comp with a sick backflip, and to Felix Wiemers, who got second and very likely made his way to the tour next season.

Here are some Pics:

Despite my injury in january and the fact that I just did three of the seven tour stops, I got 8th in the overall open-faces freeride ranking. Very happy with that !!


Now I'm looking foward to my last FWQ (3*) comp this year in Balea Lac, Romania on the 13th of April. I'm very confident right now and I think I will go for it there ;)

ride on, Julian
