Hi there, this is Adam. This year I’m going to share my adventures with you once a month. So, this was my January. It’s the snowiest and coldest month in my hometown As. I couldn’t ride much but trained a lot in my cellar where I’m having a spinning bike, weights aso. Since contests are rare during the winterseason I was really looking forward to drive to Chopok in Slovakia. There a group of locals organized a Snow 4X race that I wanted to ride on my DH bike, which I built up with parts of my sponsors Ghost, Halo, Gusset and X-Fusion.
Together with my good friend Petr Mühlhans I drove to Slovakia. The track in Chopok was icy but riding was fun. About 120 riders wanted to take part in the race. I managed a good qualification but the race turned bad after the 5th round. The ice had melted under the tires and it was rather like riding in powder. I crashed several times and finished the race as 17th. Hopefully I took all crashes for the year already. Concerning the result, the beginning of the season wasn’t the best but I’m sure it’ll get better soon.
