Almabtrieb 2014 is over and man what an event this was. Yesterday was the final day and the heats in the A bracket were stacked as hell. Every run had big names in it, so it was very exciting and anybody's guess to see who got knocked out in the first round and who stayed in.
Just to name a few riders, who got knocked out in the first round; Kyle Wester, 2013 Winner Matze Ebel, Erik Lundberg and Calvin Staub. See the whole list of riders on our Facebook post here. The level was very high and riders were really challenging each other to go big.
The finishes were really close as you can see on the photo below, which shows (from left to right) Zak Maytum (USA), Rob McWhinnie (AUS) and Deen Mondt (NL).…

Today was race day for brackets B and C and it was a tight finish in some heats. People were overtaken less than 5 meters before the finish line, so the transponders were really proofing their worth here.
We started the morning with bracket C, a 64 man heat; 16 rounds, then 8, then 4, then 2 to seed the finals and finally the 2 finals itself. The 4 best riders moved up to bracket B. These 4 are :
1. Esaja Ekman
2. Garino Georgio
3. Mihael Zadravec
4. Giuseppe Maltese
We were again fortunate to have beautiful, hot weather and luckily no serious accidents occurred. Like every year the Risch corner was the most interesting of all, where people came together to watch some…Continue

Almabtrieb 2014 is in full swing, the weather is perfect with temperatures around 25 degrees non-stop. We started yesterday with a full day of freeriding/practice and everyone was enjoying a relaxed day of riding. Riders weren't going all out (or were riding very safe), which showed in the number of accidents, because there weren't any. …Continue
The IDF Euro Tour has already started last week end in Norway (Lillyhammer IDf WQS) and Italy (Lozio skateorum IDf WQS). Here comes a report about Lozio , the first IDf race in Italy, organized by Carlo Righetti and his friends.
Crispy air and clean blue sky woke us up after a night of great party and big rain storm. Mood, atmosphere and asphalt could not be better for the (first) Italian leg of the IDF World Qualifying Series 2014 which took place within Lozio Skateorum MMXIV, an Italian classic also including freerides and the Italian Grand Championship, www.ruote-libere.it/skateorum/
The Open Longboard was dominated by Alex Dehmel, who came from Germany to win the first place and be honored with the…Continue

Jimmy Riha, Patrick Switzer and Benjamin Dubreuil
Whistler, Canada - Patrick Switzer won the Whistler Longboard Festival in convincing fashion, leading from start to finish in the final after winning all of his heats. Last year's winner, Jimmy Riha finished second and a very stoked Benjamin Dubreuil came in third. Intermittent rain throughout the day left the course in patchy condition, with constantly changing levels of grip.
The Womens event was also won in convincing style, with Elena Corrigall dominating every heat. Curt Watts had a massive day, winning the Juniors while also featuring in the Open finals, placing fifth. In Street Luge, Mikel Echegaray Diez of Spain was able to just hold…Continue

It's raining! So we moved the startline down a notch and are soon ready to race!
We are just happy we got 2 dry and sunny days of fun and skating. Skaters are happy, I am happy, everyone are happy.
We have had a fun day in Lilyhammer! 3 timetrials and 5 freerides. Not as many runs as we maybe wanted to, but skater time is skater time...
Weather has been on our side and we might have a dry race tomorrow, but also migh be thunder and rain. Time will tell, but we are ready to race even though we might have to shorten the track.
Tried to post the brackets embeded, but I didn't manage. So here is a link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AqD0r4NGrLNCdG9ZY2x6bGMwd202ZjNnZEVGMjcxb0E&single=true&gid=5&output=html
