Great, now pray for no rain!

How is the surface?

a close-up photo with a bearing on it would be of great help!

the weather situtation on the course for the ams is as follows:
some offset cones lead into some wider swings and some nicely offset cones again,all on a steep hill,which leads to burning urethane and some nice adrenaline rushes combined with some fricking speed,right at the first third of the hill,IF you make it clean to the bottom,expect
some 6 foot straight cones to get more speed(they are tricky to enter with the speed you have) running into some good offsets to make you work for your prizes.

no mercy from the wicked ones!!!!!!!!!

next up is the pro course.

what a nice way to start the season.

hoping for sun, weather can change fast in D'dorf. (because it is near to the north-sea NL, mostly weather comes from westside)

Sun would be GREAT, but I guess it will not be.

Let's plan for an alternative session in the bowl as well, so noone is disappointed if it rains out.

all pool-sessions are racers only.
so if you want to join the race you can skate the pool,if not,no chance on that weekend.
i'm checking on a really good alternative for the race,if it rains,more later...

so i checked a few spots today-IF IT RAINS-and chances are good that we will pull off the race ANYWAY.

here's the lowdown:you WILL race on sunday-if not in oberkassel-then somewhere else.
we have a good and organized crew in düsseldorf and cologne and we will make it happen anyway.

there's enough cars around and hopping from one location to the next is pretty easy with a bunch of cool,motorized guys.
i scouted some locations in the nearby area today,some are under bridges or maybe in a huge factory,next to the bowl.ain't that scenic?

to the one guy who propagates on other forums that the race will be rained out:keep up your pessimistic spirits,we don't care and we don't see you racing either.
there's a big difference between keyboard-racing and real racing.
so put up or shut up.

Let´s wait with the forecasts until friday. Everything else is bullshit at the moment...

Saturday before the race I spend a little brunch at my skateshop. Nothing special. I sponser some bread and coffee, you can watch some nice boards and after this we drive to the factory pool for a nice session. Anybody interested???? What´s up Sven, Fred, Yoyo and the rest....

erst steil , dann total flat .....quasi erst rollen lassen und dann Gas geben !

that's what carsten posted on another forum

oh oh oh you will see there is a difference from 1 year ago to now.

no more rolling around but fighting with traction and speed on a hill-that's the new style

you could make it on the c81 i guess
spacing on the hill is 2m at the start and it goes wider into2-4m cone distances
the bottom starts with 1,80m again
that looks loke a special course to me,eh?
