Getting (wet) together with the Fiat Freestyle Team

Life can be so good. Tuesday, leaving work at 1 p.m. to go the the lake of Ammersee. Official 'Get Together' with the Fiat Freestyle Team Germany. Surfing, high diving, paddling. "Work" done at 9 p.m. What a day!

ONBOARD GIRLS WEEK - LAST REPORT

Sorry I didn't upload a blog earlier but we had been cut off the internet for the last days (I think the neighbor noticed we were sneaking into his wireless network and finally set up a password)...

ONBOARD GIRLS WEEK - "I'M WALKING ON SUNSHINE"!

The forecast said we would have exactly one day of sunshine which would be today. We killed it.

After two weeks of bottomless pow pow, we chose the right week. After one day of good weather, it is raining cats and dogs here. What used to be a hell of a winter turned into "Ups, spring is coming"...

Everybody who was shredding in South Germany and Austria at the weekend is probably still smiling!

I HATE MY JOB!

I really do. Had to go heliboarding last week. During Ispo. They picked us up with a helicopter in Munich and flew us straight to Arlberg. Went riding for a day. I was so happy when we were finally back in Munich!

ONBOARD GOES EAST - DAY TWO & THREE

Well, where shall I start? It is only our third day in East Germany but it seems like we have been here since a week. We did get done a lot already, thanks to our highly motivated crew that is spotting, shovelling and riding like crazy.

Onboard goes East - Day One

Actually I wanted to start my first blog about our trip through East Germany with some historical facts. But first of all I have to admit that I never felt as old as in this very moment right now. It is 1.30 in the morning, we just came back from a 5 hours rail session, after searching and shovelling spots for the whole day, and I can't move anymore.
