Patrick, Tom, Marco and me meet friday morning at my appartement i Innsbruck, to get ready for KTO!
After a 1h drive we made it to the Riders Office in Feichten to get inscription done and food vouchers!!!!!!
After that we went striaght up to the glacier to shred the mini park they build!
In the afternoon the Downdays rail battle took place!
Loads of crazy trick were drown down,one foot 3out and bonk 2 in change up to 2 out as well as bonk4 in and nosebutter 2 on pretzel 2 out and some lip 270´s with pretzel 2 out from my side, as well as the all time favorites like 2 in pretzel 2out and blind switch up to pretzel2out, and k-fed´s and a small 13year old swiss kid which was destroying it!

Afterwards we went to a Line Team dinner with Korbi, Patrick, Marco, Tom, Robie and Marc at Pizzaria Rustica, had some nice food and after we went to the Aestivation premiere!
Next day was Mini shred comp, unfortunatley the weather was really bad, snow was falling, fog all over the place and it was coooooold! All the new snow made it really hard to even get enough speed without pushing for all the boxes!
But anyway the crew did a great job by providing a perfectly shaped mini shred park!
The luck was not on my side this day, and i crashed ones and did a bit shit on the kinked box on my second run!
