Senonerpark Hochkar 2010 – Better Than Ever?
On Tuesday the 16th of February the QParks crew took their chance to realize the first film- and photoshooting in the Senonerpark Hochkar. Participants were Clemens and Felix Prankl, formerly known as P – Unit, the photographer Stefan Voitl, Jasmin Reischer and Dominik Weghaupt from the Bamboos, David Liptay and his friend from Budapest, Hochkar Open Winner Flo Galler, Georg Ischep alias Scheps, Flo Kirch and a lot more Senonerpark locals like Headshaper Shnorty and his gang.
QPark designer Bernd Mandlberger was overwhelmed after his last visit and talked in highest tones about the killer set up. Now it was time to make up our own opinion! As the chairlift runs directly over the park area, we recognized immediately that the rumours were true! The Senonerpark 09/10 simply rocks! All lines can be combined and the riders can easily switch between beginner, intermediate and pro elements! The park offers some well known obstacles but also some fresh and new ones like an A Frame and an elephant box.
But the most obvious change happened to the big kicker at the bottom as it rolls smoothly like never before and guarantees maximum airtime with minimum risk. The Styrian talent Flo Galler won the Hochkar open two weeks ago and continued to stomp trick after trick this time. He was happy and said: “Already at the Hochkar Open I really enjoyed the big Kicker, because it gives you a very controlled feeling in the air and it is not too big and therefore perfect to practice tricks. During the contest the weather was very foggy, so today I was pretty stoked to ride it again on this bluebird day”.
Big props also to Heimi, Smeul, and all other riders! All in all in was just a nice day with a lot of action on all elements, good vibes and a friendly atmosphere. Check the first clip and the shooting gallery. By the way, another rumour is building up at the Hochkar. People are talking about a big “H” or something like that…. Only time will tell!
