Ride Further Tour – Hard (AT)

It was at one of Europe’s largest concrete parks, right next to beautiful lake Constance in Austria where the Ride Further Tour Stop #5 was supposed to go down last weekend. Expectation were high with an amazing lineup of international and local riders but the weather just didn’t feel like playing its part.

Non-stop rain all forced everyone to go for plan B and check out the indoor parks in Ulm, Basel and Winterthur but together with the riders the crew decided to not hold the whole competition in a different location but to believe in the changing weather forecast for Sunday and pull the event of in just one day. And luck was on their side!

As soon as the park was dry Sunday morning the riders of the pre-qualifying started to warm up and it was Alessio Tonolio from Switzerland who surprised everyone with massive transfers. Him and Paul Janda (Germany) secured their wildcards for the pro final.

Kriss Kyle came in first, impressing everyone with massive airtime and his amazing technical skills, followed by Alex Hiam and Greg Illingworth – definitely the fastest guy on the course.

Eventho the weather during the whole trip was far from great, everyone made the best out of it and had an amazing time nonetheless – also thanks to one, or two bottles of Jägermeister
