Live to Ride
Have you ever heard about Adrenaline?

Why do people do sports which kick in ass? I really don't mean playing golf or riding a horse...
I always tried to do something to keep me healthy and to make me feel fit. Yes, indeed, that was the main thing for me - feeling healthy.

Now, after boarding and biking since 1993, I can say, that I am really in shape, but damned have a look at my feet!
A lot of scratches and wounds all over my feet. My left knee, injured by trying to motocross. Right knee, injured by riding downhill on semmering. Scratches by stroking some trees and roots. Bones insulted by kissing the snow and ice. Greetings to my lips ...

But I am able to say: I feel good and I am happy and it's a better deal to risk some blood and feel high - a better way to get high speed than some of the others, available in the market place or sitting in an office for 8 hours per day and for 5 days per week the hole fucking life...
I am so sorry , I tried it, but I couldn't handle that baby. I'm sorry grandma, for the person that I would never be and I know I don't make things that easy, but I am one of the luckiest man in the world - right now.

It always makes me lough when I am watching people at the slopes and on the hills. There are all sorts of body shapes, sizes and levels of fitness riding out there. You do not have to be fittest guy to board - just have fun for your own. What I want to say is, that it is not important wheter there are oldies or kids out there having fun on the snow.
Some of them are getting a dose of adrenaline when they are shredding
the pow or doing a Corkscrew 720...

Crusing through the trees, you notice an excellent take off platform and decide to go for it - you bend your knees a little more as your speed increases, you lift of, make a perfect 360 turn before landing with the face upside down in the pow.
Damned fuckin luck - seems to be all teeth on there favorite place...
