The sport of mountain biking has many diciplines, but most recently, trail bike racing, aka Enduro, has become all the craze. I am in New Zealand at the moment for Crankworx racing several events, and while out training I have also been learning all about race tactics and set up tips from the world's best Enduro racers here at round 1 of the Enduro World Series.
The Ridge is the brand new film from Danny Macaskill... For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.
Vogel Mountain Bike Park was the fifth and last location of Projekt 5. On the trail which is 1,2 kilometers long I was riding with Gašper Kos. Even it is short trail it has everything and it's perfect for the training. From the trail you can see Triglav, the Slovenian highest mountain, and the view in general from Vogel Mountain Bike Park on the Alps and lake Bohinj is spectacular!

I had the pleasure of traveling to Hawaii for teaching BMX and skateboarding to kids living on US military bases on the island of Oahu. There are two skate parks on the Hickam/Pearl Harbor base and both have a plethora of different ramps, wedges and rails. About 40 kids ages 6-16, participated in a 3-hour class for 5-days learning the building blocks of BMX & Skateboarding. I was the BMX coach and Ryan Seifried was the skateboard coach. Here is an interview with pics from the military newspaper: http://www.hookelenews.com/renowned-bmx-stunt-rider-teaches-joint-base-kids/
Yet another podium at the IXS European cup in Pila, Italy and 5th place for me. I was aiming a bit higher after finishing 4th in seeding, but I made a huge mistake which had cost me valuable time but overall I'm happy with the result and can't wait for the upcoming races.
