So yeah one of the most fun weeks of the season went down already a month ago now. This is what went down at the Big Air show of Mountain Madness!
Hope to see you all there next year!
last week I was in Mayrhofen for some training for the upcoming Worldcup in Kreisberg next week. Here's the edit!
I haven't posted anything in a while and that's because I was injured. The plan was for me to go to the Burton European Open. But the day after when I finally heard I could go, I went to the Doctor for my shoulder which had been hurting for about a month from all the crashes of my Front double tries.. and the doctor said it was pretty bad and that I couldn't go.
Well my shoulder is feeling better and next week I'm finally going away again! I think we're going to Kaprun.. So until then, here's a BS lip to satisfy your needs.
I had a great week in Val Thorens last week. We had super nice weather and I learned some new tricks.
Check it out!
So last week I competed in the Europecup slopestyle in Snowworld Landgraaf. It was a fun week! The park was good, two nice 10 and 12 meter jumps and some fun rail sections. I did okay. I made it to the finals as 2nd of my heat but unfortunately I fell two times in the finals. I was really bummed out because I could have done better but I guess 8th place is allright. All the Dutchies were rocking though! Dimi de Jong got 1st and Erik Bastiaansen from the rookies got 3rd. I think there were like 6 Dutch riders in the top 9 haha!
But yeah the rest of the riders were throwing down, too. I saw some backside doubles and frontside 10s so it was pretty heavy.

So yeah everyone did well, I'm glad I at least landed a run in qualifications. It was a fun week!

After not doing anything with my website for almost a year I thought maybe it's good to have something new. Something I can start working on again and have some fun with. So I'm gonna try updating my blog more regularly. You can also check out my instagram pictures (@thijs_ottens) as well as some music I love.
Hope you like it!
