Speed Pilots was a Wakeboard Comp, FMX Show and Music Festival all happening in Geisenfeld (Bavaria), close to Munich.
The startlist consisted of twelve invited International Riders with big international names like Im San from Korea and World Champion Dominik Guehrs from Germany.
I was lucky to be able to ride in the competition, as a rider got injured and I was reserve. I didn’t expect too much, because it was my first pro competition. However, the format was a 15 min jam session with six different sections with your best trick counting in each section. In the qualification on Friday I had a pretty hard heat with Timo Kapl and Christopher Klein in the qualifications, so I went all out and unfortunately crashed my tricks.
Anyway, I managed to make it through the LCQ’s on Saturday morning and went into Semi Finals against Christopher Klein and Sam de Haan with the first making it trough to a Super Final of the best four. I managed to place 2nd in that heat just after Chris,which placed me in 5th overall. I landed all my hard tricks just as I wanted to like my 315 and a HS BS 900. I’m super stoked about that result with an insane line up of international pro riders! Can’t wait for next years event and hope to see some of you out there!
