Peyragudes was a bit of a let down all in all, the race day was cancelled due to fog and the race to qualify day was ment to be relaxed and no one was really pushing it. I had some great runs with Dalua and Bouaich and will remember the speed rush of the final straight for a long time to come. We got back on the road straight away and started heading for Zürich, home of Fibretec Longboards and some of the worlds fastest riders. We where welcomed to the city with a small party/bbq by the river in the middle of the city. We set up the bbq and watched the swimmers in the river and more than 20 randoms skate past. The scene here is huge! The roads are shit to drive so everyone is biking it or rolling. After an hour or so we noticed a guy cruising down the path with a full face, it was non other than Martin Seigrist! He was shocked to see a few Aussies having a bbq on his river bank, stoked to see him again we lined up a freeride that night around the city. The runs around town are off the hook, gnarly steep long sweepers, heaps of sliding and getting rad. Martin has left racing and looks relaxed on his board, busting 180s and slashing the roads to pieces, it was great to bomb and destroy a hill like this with him and about 15 others along for the ride. The best part of riding this city is the lifts back up to the top, 2 minutes in a little carriage and your back at the top. Fibretec factory for ages, it's located in the basement of a building in the center of town. The walls of the shop are covered with posters from years past and aero helmets line the ceiling. The factory reminds me of the old hopshop, theres skaters lurking and employees playing with new cnc cut trucks, people are just chilling out there and stoking the scene. I was on a mission to build a board, every thing i need to do it was right here and available. I wanted to make a tub concave on a classic top mount shape, i chose the 940 flying pan concave and cut out a sharp nose and a wide ass with a small kick, the shape is rad, it looks long but is the smallest wheelbase ive ever ridden. fibretec is showing us around and has been shredding like a boss on every hill we hit. We are now traveling with Marisa Nunez and Raoul to the last race of our tour, Desente 2012. Theres heaps of rumours about the track and the organisation seems a bit dodge already, im racing to win but am going to be enjoying my last week Europe drinking with locals and hitting amazing hills with total shredders on my new board from Fibretec longboards.
