The AdventureX Team Head Honcho Ben Mason came out with the new Team Bus and a couple of UK ambassadors to watch and support me at the event.
The Rules and Regulations were tightened this year to make keep everyone safe on the class 5/6 rapids so the next stop was kit check and Race Briefing at the Saal EZ Center.
The river level was perfect for and after a few practice runs I was feeling good on the water. Feeling really comfortable in my new Cag from Nookie Paddling Gear and well fitted in the new Burn from Pyranha and with my new Helemt from Robinhood Watersports all glistening in the Autumn sunshine It was time for the racing to begin.
My Lines were good on the top and fitness was getting the better of me towards the end of the qualification run and I took a few hits in some of the features. However my runs were consistently good and put me through to the Semi Finals
So A big thanks to the Adidas Sickline Team who put on another amazing event, and to Nookie Robinhood Water Sports and the Hf Rescue Team for their Life saving gear and rescue aid!
I hope to come back next year and go a just a little further.
We stopped off in Munich on the way home for the last day of the famous German festival Oktoberfest. It was an amazing experience with thousands of people in huge marque tents celebrating life with beer at the ready. Barrels and barrels of the stuff. It was good to relax with the Team and rewind after the race.
