Hey my lil blogreader friends, and also a hey to the tall ones.
I’m at home in Berchtesgaden at the moment – or actually not just at the moment, I’ll probably be here for some time. I have fucked up my knee again almost three weeks ago. I was in Canada and we tried to shoot something in the backcountry even although there was no real backcountry (there was no snow over there around that time). Yeah, well we built a jump and after a while our landing was already pretty much done so we had to land more on the sides of the landing if we still wanted to get shots. So I chose the right angle and down at the bottom of this direction was this tree which seemed not really dangerous to me from up there.
So after I landed on my feet I got some speed but finally felt few meters further, so I couldn´t control my direction anymore and got drawn to the tree which hit my my knee sidewards.
because of this bail I blew up my ligament on the inside and hurt my ACL also again, but luckily my ACL is not blown up and my knee is still strong and stable enough to keep out of a surgery.
It has to heal on its own for now. I’m not sure yet when I will be able to ride again. The doctors say in 6 or 8 weeks if my knee is free for moves then. We will see – just hope it gets strong again, hate riding with a pain in the ass. So at the moment I’m just at home boring and normal. Trying to get to schoolwork done that I missed out and trying to organize myself a car and train for my knee. A few things to do until I will be able to ride again…
But whatever, I hope you guys are still out there – keep on ridin with your boys all day long, this is how we roll it! And by the way there is a new monthly clip online at www.isenseven.de. Go and check, you will love it anyway!
In a while,
