The Muph Column
written by Martin Schenk


Together with Gerhard Mayr and Brano Niks I did a sweet show at the Ursus Alcohol Free Track event in Cluj Napoca / ROM. Apart from the always-scary car-drive to get there everything turned out sweet being perfectly organized! Looking forward to be back next year but this time for a PROPER afterparty hahaa!

A couple days after returning home I took another 1.600km drive west to stay with my buddy Remi Bizouard. After a couple of days even Brice Izzo dropped by for some practice with the boys finishing 1st and 2nd the following weekend at the IFMXF in Riga! Needless to say the riding level was pretty wicked. :-)

Merci beaucoup for the great time and practice, Remi! And congrats on the World Championship crown! Looks like you really listened to all my advice hehehe!

In October I was invited to ride the Night of the Jumps World Championship event in Zagreb, unfortunately the contest was cancelled a couple days before due to security reasons.

Since then I´ve been keeping myself busy pimping my compound, spending lots of time on tracks, riding enduro in Slovakia, downhilling and hitting the gym. Unfortunately the New Year´s show in Fiss ain´t gonna happen in 2009 so my next appearance will be at the Nacht der Ballone in Zell am See in January. Anyone being in the zone drop by, have some Vodka Gröbi and be happy! Til then thanks a lot to my sponsors Black Flys, DVS,, Ghost Bikes, GoldenTyre, Injoy Graz Ost,, MP Suspension, Ogio, Roc Stompa and SixSixOne and merry X-Mas to you! Peace.
