Column written by Nick de Wit

Hey Everyone.

The past month has been a relatively quiet one with the traveling, but still been super busy with the riding. It started off with me going to Cape Town. I were suppose to have a national competition there but due to bad management it was only a demo. It was a really cool setup and I had fun but would have been better if we could do some battle down there. After that I came back to Johannesburg for some training. I was invited to do the Red Bull X-Fighters event in the middle of May so any chance I can get I'm on the bike. The following weekend I had a small show in Johannesburg. It was fun to do an event close to home for a change.

After that I had to do some of my international traveling for the month. I hoped on a plane to Saudi Arabia for a Red Bull event. I rode at a big cultural festival for approximately 50000 guys who came to watch per day. The 1st day was really good but on the second day we woke to find a giant sand storm outside. We had to postpone the event for a few hours but still managed to pull of a cool show.

I then came back home for some more training. I have been working on some new tricks and have managed to get no hand backflip. Lots of fun. My last event of the month was a little different to what I'm used to. I opted to leave the engine out and went and did a bicycle race for some fun. The up hills weren't so much fun but the rest was really cool. I got the old blood flowing again and was surprisingly fitter than I thought I was. Now I'm taking a weekend off and then back to training next week. I have till X- Fighters in mid may at home so I'm going to make the best of it.

The next few events i have are X-Fighters (15 May) and then to europe for some more events and traveling.

Hope you all had an awesome March and an even better April

Thanks for the support
