Still can't really believe it.. just got Vice European Champion in 2012 !!
With the last tourstop of the KTE 2012 in Barcelona/Spain it came down to a close result between my teammate Mario Rodwald and myself again!
We had some pretty good conditions at the beginning of the single elimination and I felt really good during my first heats. During the day the wind got a bit lighter and it got pretty hard to stay in the heat area! In the Final against Mario, I started quite good with some powered tricks. Unfortunately I dropped my kite in the shorebrake and it took me a while to relauch it. In the end, Mario performed really well and won the final!
The 2nd place in the event confirmed my 2nd place in the european overall ranking of this year. I am stoked that i was able to make it on the podium again! - but even more happy and excited about my Vice European Champion Title!
I wanna thank all my great sponsors, my family and my friends who made all that possible! I wouldn't be able to do what I love to do the most without you guys!
