2007 IGSA Alpspeed Downhill World Cup

7

Venue: Thun, Switzerland Date: July 18-21, 2007 After the Almabtrieb race was over, my dad and I hitched a ride back from Jungholz to Zurich, again with Nino Zeke. Luis Lins, Bettina Luginbuhl, and Jojo Linder also hitched a ride back with us. The van was big enough for all of us. The drive back to Zurich was about 4 hours! When we finally arrived in Zurich, Nino dropped each one of the riders at their houses. They’re all close buddies who skate together in Zurich, so they all know each other. I think they all represent Roll Laden, a … Continue reading

The next World Cup would be the Almabtrieb World Championship in Jungholz, Austria. This event kicked off the 2007 IGSA World Cup Series.

2006 IGSA World Championship

DSCF1841b

Venue: Tumegl/Tomils, Switzerland Date: July 17-22, 2006 The journey to the 2006 IGSA World Championship in Switzerland started with me checking in at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). On July 15, 2006, I took a direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Zurich with Malaysia Airlines. The nice thing about the flight was that it departed at midnight and arrived in Zurich at about 6:30 in the morning. In the summertime, the sun is already up at 5:00 AM so it was already bright. At the Zurich airport, I purchased a one-way ticket to Tumegl/Tomils and proceeded to board the … Continue reading

It’s just a few hours before I leave to KLIA airport to go to the 2006 IGSA World Championship in Scheid, Switzerland. Currently all my luggage has been packed. I’m bringing a laptop bag, helmet bag, backpacker’s bag, and the Rewsports street luge. Reason being since I’m only limited to 20 kg to check in. Really traveling light this time. Speaking of which, this race will be my first race that I’m going to travelling from Malaysia. My prior race experience has only been in the United States when I was studying there as a Petronas scholar. Last year I … Continue reading

2005 Madison County Gravity Festival

6

Venue: Munnsville, New York, USA Date: July 30-31, 2005 This race is actually my last race in the United States before going back to Malaysia after I graduate. As such, I had to make it a point to attend as I had really enjoyed myself there last year. This year there were a lot more racers in all racing categories. I raced in both pro street luge and pro buttboard, just like last year. The event this year improved a lot, since we were able to camp at a certain spot on the hill. Not only that, but lunch was … Continue reading
