Winter biking

Spring is starting, I KNOW(!!!)... Nevertheless here's another vid with some winter biking. Vid was done by Chris from biking-hiking on the same day out i posted some pics of earlier. This was his first go at a video with his D90. Enjoy!

Spring riding

Here is a shot from the same weekend that Colin took another pic of the week over at the IBC Forum. Tine and i enjoyed a beautiful and quite ride. I think there were about 3 other people we met that day. And we didn't even have any contact with snow :-).

Lago trail flow

Pic shows Max flowing down a Lago trail last weekend. Dry trails and sunny weather seem to be a long way off in Bavaria right now...

Made front cover of number 18. Pic shows Max Schumann riding in Bavaria back in January. With the drop off to the right I can't believe how fast he took that bend, especially without spikes. Go and get the Mag, it's out now!

Apprentice bike mechanic...

Niall helping Papi with the bike servicing down in the cellar this afternoon.
Currently experimenting with Adobe Lightroom. I like it so far :-). Above is a picture which was basically an accident, a sideproduct of fooling around in LR :-). Dominik is enjoying some nice snow in Obergurgl.

Chalet Jump

Matthias takes in some Chalet air time up at Kotalmjoch. Felix is hiding underneath/behind the shaded hump of snow taking fat shots with the fisheye...

Update Felix: And here is one of the fisheye shot from my hiding place. It is pretty much the same as the 3rd frame of Colin's shot...


And here comes another skiing pic. I went out to Obergurgl with two of the piefke guys (more see here www.diewahnsinnigenpiefkes.at) to get some powder. The powder part didn't work out quite as good as expected, but the fun part did :-). At the end of the day we finally found a sweet chute and a good photo spot (Dominik ripping a nice line)

Same jump, different angle

Same jump, different angle. While Colin was using his extension :-) to get a pic of Matze above the lake, i was trying the opposite focal lens: fisheye..And here is a shot with my cheapo 200mm tele... I felt a bit inadequate next to Colin :-)

Day out in the sun

I finally went out to do some snow shots again. We went to the Sellrain and enjoyed a beautiful day. Quite a lot of people had the same idea as we did, albeit with a "rodel". Guess for some we were quite the "lunatics of the day". However only positive reactions!! . The pic above is one of the few without a flash i got on my harddrive ;-). Chris doing some drifting.

And then we had some fun at the parking lot: a new actionsport was invented!!! This is what i call nordic diving (all rights reserved, patent pending)! Also goes under the name of snowdiving :-) (If i invent some stupid accessory, i will get filthy rich ;-)... mh, or i just have to somehow convince the rich old people that this is healthy.... mh... plotting.... )

Föhn rider

Super warm in Munich on 28th Feb 09. Ground turned to slush but the mountain views and light were fantastic. Pic shows Max Schumann in action.
