i got hurt end of march and since then iam trying to get back in a good shape. i slammed on a big jump and i twisted my neck- for some seconds i couldn’t feel my fingers!
the season was super fun in the beginning- i stayed for some time in the us! i got back home middle of feb. then i had a two weeks break. after that break i had 5 days of filming where i got hurt the first time! after another two weeks break i went shooting with gigi and we build up this massive cap. on my last try i slammed super hart and i twisted my head! since that i was three times on the mountain one time for the banked slalom and the other two times for my feeling to be on the mountain! also iam trying to get in a good shape with rehab, riding my new bike if the weather is good, doing some art (engraving) working on my apartment. thats my life right now!
first montafon banked slalom is over! it was a amazing weekend with friends! the weather god was gracious to us. temperatures around 15 degrees made people from all over the world feel comfortable. you could see on everybodies faces how much fun they had with the racing track! the crowd was amazed by the action and enjoyed the nice atmosphere. they had the chance to see all kind of riders from their best friends to the worlds best snowboarders! an ice cold beer at the apres banked session made everyone happy and ready for the awards ceremony at night. Nice and funky music, drinks and goodies showed the spirit of the montafon banked slalom and made it a great event.

stay banked for the next year!
There always has to be a first time! Banked Fever in Gargellen!
On 2nd of april we’re going to race through a natural basin, man-made course, „Old School Style“! The course is set up in Gargellen at Schafberg and the race starts at 10:00 am. Riders of all ages, rookies and experts, can show their skills.
Early this season I realized that there are so many talents out there. It would be cool to bring some of them together in a true snowboard event which is not about freestyle or freeriding but snowboarding. In some conversation Marco „Fichtl“ Feichtner came up with the idea of a banked slalom and I immediately knew what to do. So here we go now. Hope to see you there.
As we have a maximum number of 80 competitors please make sure to register in advance on our website www.montafonbanked.com
