TEAM NEWSKESTENHOLZ 2nd AT FREESTYLE.CH
Freestyle.ch is over and RIDE is more than proud to have the “old” dog Reto Kestenholz in our Team!!!
Congratulations Reto to your amazing second place! You showed the Snowboard Scene again how many experience you have in jumping big Kickers! It was a great pleasure to watch Reto riding. On Friday and Saturday, when the Kicker was still in good shape, he sticked every trick perfect. With his new bs3 nose seatbelt he makes it on Friday on the first place and Saturday on the second. Unfortunately due the really hot weather, the Kicker was not the best anymore. So Reto had some problems to make every trick as safe as in the two days before. But nevertheless he showed all the youngsters and some of the best Snowboarders in the world how to ride snowboard and the crowd loved him for this stylish riding and his friendly character! We are hoping that we can work together with Reto a couple more years!
Thanx Dude for this great Show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Marco “Fichtl” Feichtner is back from his trip to Argentina. See here his checkback signal:
Subject: news argentina
Hello from Argentina!!
It was my first trip to Argentina. I was on the way with Erik Themel the freeride dog, Lukas Goller, Dave Short and photodog Basti! We had a really long trip to get to Las Lenas, arround four days! We flew from Munich to Atlanta and from Atlanta to Buenos Aires and than we thought we had a flight booked but they booked us to another airport close to Las Lenas! So we had another 18 hours to Las Lenas with the bus! Las Lenas is a small tourist village really expensive but the Argentine people are so nice and helpfully- respect! We had a great time there, the snow conditions were not so good but we tried to give our best! Now I am back at my home place but I have to leave today to Innsbruck because we have our world premiere of the new Pirate movie! News of the premiere coming soon!
NOTES FROM PRISCILLA’S AUS/NZ TRIP
Hey here’s a few pics from my trip…
I went on a DC trip to Australia and New Zealand, and it was probably my best trip ever!! It’s just such a cool feeling to realize that you’re in Australia! I kept saying that everyday “hey! We’re in Australia!!”. The mountains are pretty flat there but we made the most of it and had SO much fun!! We did some cool road trips, saw some kangaroos, wombats, most of them were dead on the side of the road but still cool!
I did 3rd place at the Australian Open, which i’m really stoked about, since it was my first contest since i broke my leg at XGames. We also visited Sydney, we took a train to the Harbour bridge and visited the Opera house at night, such cool experience! We were such a good crew, lots of “flat whites” black licorice, australian wine and lots of good people, good snow and lots of sunshine!!! Then we flew to New Zealand but i was only there for a few days.. the weather wasn’t the greatest but
we went snowboarding anyway and ate some good thai food and hung out by our fireplace a lot.
Jenz our regional Team RIDEr from the Shrednik Crew outta Neugersdorf, Germany, caught the
biggest walleye in his life so far! Congrats Jenz! See ya at the Kaunertal Opening.
