On the 20th of May I am heading out to Texas for the first stop of the WWA tour stop which I am super excited about as I've always had a amazing time in Texas when I've been before :)
Then it's home for 2 weeks and off to China for an invited IWWF event with some big money
up for grabs.
So thats it for this month I am really excited and can't wait to start getting into the session.
Be sure to keep an eye on my Facebook,Twitter etc ..... to see how I get on thanks for checking out my blog peace and love :)
I had an MRI when I got back to England and found out I had torn my meniscus and had a grade 1 ACL tear so instead of jetting off somewhere warm for the winter to ride I had a knee operation to fix this the week before Christmas and have been rehabbing throughout the winter. After my operation I wasn’t allowed to bend my knee more than 90 degrees for 6 weeks so I ended up with one weedy small leg and one normal leg! I’ve been putting lots of hours in at the gym getting my runty leg stronger and doing loads of cycling so I’m probably fitter now than before my injury!
I will be running weekly ladies morning coaching sessions at JBSki again this season starting this week. It will be great to see all the girls getting back on the water and am looking forward to seeing everyone progress over the season.
I was gutted to have missed out on the pros go camping tour but am going to catch up with everyone when they come to my home cable JBSki. Fingers crossed I’ve only got about 6 weeks left until I can get out on the water. I can’t wait to get back out there I’m so excited to start riding again especially as it’s actually sunny here now!
Finally in Palembang Indonesia for the World Cup, Nancy and I are having a good time here. The people here are very nice and help us a lot so we get along with this country. We both arrived on Wednesday evening and have practice Friday morning. Then on Saturday we have prelims and finals on Sunday. We do our best and compete as strong as we can.
If you want to watch the webcast: www.iwwf.tv it is.
What else to say about this place. The food is different for sure. Especially for people from the western side of the earth. Even Mc Donald's is different here. But they try their best to serve some good food. The climate is typically warm and sunny. We have like 30 - 36 C. It's quite nice. So watch the webcast and stay tuned for more blogs of us and information about our trip.
Nancy and Bojan
I think It’s time to tell you a little bit about what I’m doing!
Since Monday I’ve been training hard in Orthez, South West of France. It’s a really nice place to ski, especially for jump because it’s the only place in France where we can move the ramp and this way always jump with head wind. I only have a week of training before I go to Indonesia to compete for another worldcup stop. I’ve been jumping 3 times a day, and I really enjoy it. This time I’m qualified in trick and jump for Indonesia, so I’m tricking everyday as well.
After Indonesia, I’m going straight to Florida to train and participate in some tournaments there. Like Bojan, I will compete at Ski Fluid tournament as well as the LCQ in order to try to qualify for the US Masters at the end of May.
I will keep you posted!
Last weekend we had the national Season Kick Off at Down Under. Daan Rigter and me kept our selfs busy on the Teva Blue Line. The Sesitec System 2.0. It has some nice obstacles in it but in corporation with Teva we decided to ad some more flavour to it by building a wall ride. The thing came out pretty high (nearly 4 meters) but not too long. Perfect for sliding, tapping and bonking! Some of the Dutch top riders were there to jam the thing with us and to give the crowd a good show. You can check the video HERE.
Next thing on my mind is a roadtrip to Belgium and France. I'll start my trip in Knokke to meet up with the Jobe Pro's Go Camping Tour. I'm a little bit jalous that I couldn't come with them on this sick roadtrip so I hope to hear all the good stories in Knokke! I'm really looking forward to ride with them and off course everybody is welcome to ride with us and test the 2013 range of boards!
After Knokke, my trip will continue through Belgium and France. I'll visit different cables together with my girfriend and our son. I'll try to catch up with local riders to film and ride. When I get back home I'll make sure there will be a video to get you all updated!
Maybe I'll visit the Fise in Montpellier as well. Just keep an eye on my FACEBOOK for exact dates and stops of my trip:
